Now in its 16th year, hopes to follow last year’s record breaking event that saw over 7,200 retailers, licensees and sales promotion professionals gather for what has been billed as its biggest event to date.

And like last year, the 2014 event will be zoned into three distinct areas: Art, Design and Image; Brands and Lifestyle; and Character and Entertainment.

Over 80 per cent of the show’s floor space has now been filled with exhibitors including 20th century Fox Consumer Products, Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, British Library, Chelsea Football Club, Chupa Chups, ITV Global Entertainment and more.

The event will also see the return of the celebrated Licensing Academy, featuring keynote sessions from leading industry experts, all to be announced this summer.

Furthermore, the grand final of the License This! Competition will take place in front of a live audience and judging panel of industry experts.

Now in its fifth year, the competition offers those with brand new creative concepts the opportunity to break in to the global licensing industry, like last year’s winner Mr. Trafalga.
