The panel includes top execs from Mind Candy, CPLG, AT New Media, Zodiak Rights and Rizon.
LIMA UK has finalised the panellists for its Legendary Licensing Debate, which takes place on May 17th at the five-star Wyndham Grand Hotel in Chelsea Harbour, London.
The debate follows LIMA’s Licensing Essentials Course and starts at 5pm, before the Spring Fling networking party. ITV Global Studios will sponsor the event, which attracted over 170 people last year.
The 2012 Legendary Licensing Debate panellists are:
Darran Garnham - chief business development officer at Mind Candy
Vickie O’Malley - UK managing director, CPLG
Jennifer Lawlor - SVP, Zodiak Rights, international rights business
Simon Kay - business development director, AT New Media
Dave Collins - managing director at Rizon Creative
The panel will take questions from the floor, but LIMA has a list of hot topics to cover, including: ‘Is digital the future of licensing?’, ‘Will smartphones, PCs and tablets overtake the TV as the ‘home’ of licensed characters’ and ‘Are DTRs a good or bad thing for the industry?’
Kelvyn Gardner, MD of LIMA UK said: “The fact that ITV Global Studios have come on board as sponsors shows that the Spring Fling event is now recognised as one of the must-have tickets of the year.”
“Those who have not been before can expect a noisy and thought-provoking debate. It’s all in the name of getting the industry to focus on the bigger issues affecting all of us and getting some expert opinion from some of the leaders in our field. This is followed by one of the best licensing parties of the year – an opportunity to network and enjoy the luxurious surroundings of this wonderful venue.”
