Many concerns have been raised by the international community over the move of 2009's Licensing International to Las Vegas - not least the extra distance to travel.
But could this end up benefitting London's Brand Licensing Europe show?
Hakan Durdag from ELC yesterday told Licensing.biz: “I believe reasons such as these will lead to EMEA based international companies to begin concentrating more heavily on the Brand Licensing show in London from 2009 onwards."
Do you agree?
Will BLE's attendance and exhibitor figures start to reflect the reluctance of some firms to travel to Las Vegas?
