LIMA Canada details first Holiday Event

LIMA Canada is set to host an evening of education and networking at its first LIMA Canada Holiday Event this month.

Taking place on December 8th at Corus Entertainment in Toronto, speakers include Diane Brisebois, president and CEO of Retail Council of Canada, Dan MacKenzie, VP and MD of NBA Canada, Pam Westman, head of Nelvana Enterprises and more.

A panel of licensees led by LIMA’s SVP of industry relations and information, Martin Brochstein, will discuss ‘compelling reasons for a licensee to take on a license’.

“LIMA is excited to provide Canadian licensing professionals with another occasion to gather for valuable educational and networking opportunities,” said Charles Riotto, president of LIMA.

“It is a fitting end to 2016 – the year in which we formed LIMA Canada – that we would be able to produce another event that works toward our goal of unifying the Canadian market.”

Andrew Menceles, director of LIMA Canada, added: “As the global association of the licensing industry, LIMA brings its reputation and expertise to every aspect of the licensing industry.

“We are looking forward to more opportunities like the Holiday Event in the coming year that will help strengthen the Canadian licensing community, and build the support of all businesses and professions involved in licensing in Canada.”
