Licensing Expo Opens 2024 Registration with Focus on “Brands at Play”
Licensing Expo returns to Las Vegas, May 21-23, 2024, as the premier meeting point for the $340.8 billion global licensing industry.
Las Vegas, NV — Licensing Expo, the world’s leading event dedicated to brand licensing, IP extension and collaborations, opens 2024 registration and hotel bookings with new dedicated attendee programs delivering elevated value to its attending audience of global consumer product manufacturers and retailers.
Organized by Informa Markets’ Global Licensing Group and sponsored by Licensing International, Licensing Expo plays host to the world’s biggest brands from Hasbro to Pokémon, BBC’s Bluey to the Coca-Cola Company, all looking for new partners to develop best-in-class officially licensed consumer product ranges.
With “Brands at Play” set as the core theme for 2024, the event will spotlight the power play holds in every stage of life and the creativity it fosters when building brands. Manifesting across a range of new immersive brand experiences, new educational content and new catered networking spaces, the theme will also continue internationally into Brand Licensing Europe (BLE) later the same year (Sept. 24-26, 2024, ExCeL London).
