LIMA UK has finalised the panel for this week's 'Legendary Licensing Debate' during its Essentials Course.

The debate takes place on Thursday May 16th at 5pm at 51 Buckingham Gate at Crowne Plaza, St James, London.

It follows the popular Licensing Essentials Course and kicks off the annual Spring Fling networking event, which last year was attended by over 150 people.

Kelvyn Gardner, MD of LIMA UK, will host the debate. He will be joined by Tim Collins, head of brands at DC Thompson; Helen Howells, joint MD at HoHo Entertainment; Kirsty Barr, MD of mi-comms PR; Anna Hewitt, head of licensing for Walker Books; and Eric Huang, development director at Mind Candy.

"Our often noisy and provocative debate draws a crowd and provides an excellent platform to discuss industry trends, news and concerns," explained Gardner. "Our panellists will lead the discussion and help to draw attention to some of the bigger issues affecting all of us, as well as giving expert opinions."

Tickets can still be purchased for the full day or the evening.
