The Licensing.biz Powerlist is making its return for 2019

The Licensing.biz Powerlist is making its return for 2019, once again celebrating the top 100 most influential brands across the character and entertainment, brands and lifestyle, art and design, and sports sectors.

The Powerlist 2019 will be unveiled to the industry at this year’s Brand Licensing Europe and will celebrate the 100 most influential brands across the industry, in what has been another big year for licensing.

As in previous – and after a hiatus in 2018 – the Licensing.biz Powerlist will champion the top 25 biggest brand names across each of the four sectors, reflecting what has been another momentous 12 months for an evolving licensing industry and the wealth of IP within it.

This year, an independent judging panel spanning licensors, licensees, retailers and agents, among other is asked to choose their top properties from across the four categories, giving a true reflection of the most influential brands within the industry today.

Each will be selected according to their commercial impact, creativity, innovation, longevity and retail presence.

The top 100 licensed properties of the last 12 months will then be revealed in a glossy book, launched at this year’s Brand Licensing Europe on October 1st.

“It’s been another big year on the licensing scene, with plenty of changes, challenges, and a continued state of evolution that has kept this industry well on its toes. In the midst of it all, many of today’s biggest brand names have been at the forefront of change, while new and emerging platforms have given light to some innovative new IP,” said Robert Hutchins, editor of Licensing.biz and The Licensing.biz Powerlist 2019.

“The Powerlist is our chance to champion and celebrate the top 100 most influential brands of the past year, and those that keep this industry a vibrant and exciting place to work within. We’re looking forward to seeing the nominations come in and present this year’s definitive listing.”
