“Since I joined NewBay Media a year ago, I’ve been incredibly impressed with the innovation and drive within the licensing business,” said NewBay Media Europe MD Mark Burton.

“We all know the brands, the characters and the properties – and these are honoured via fantastic awards ceremonies elsewhere.

“We think that the individuals who have nurtured and established those brands over the past year should be recognised too – which is why we’ve launched the Licensing.biz People Awards. These accolades will shine the spotlight on the people and teams from across the market – from agents to retailers, R&D departments to design agencies.

“We look forward to seeing you all on the evening of Thursday April 30th to celebrate with us.”

A limited number of sponsorship opportunities are available. To find out more contact Jodie Holdway via jholdway@nbmedia.com.
