LIMA Japan: Seeking Participants for a Design Approval Staff Roundtable on February 22

LIMA Japan will host another of its popular roundtable discussions for design approval staff on Thursday 22 February in Tokyo.

The roundtable will take a deep delve into the design approval role and function in a licensing organization. The task of managing approvals for products that lead to an increase in sales while maintaining a character or brand’s image is an important mission requiring specialist expertise and good solid judgement. Gaining on-the-job experience is currently the only truly tested way to improve one’s skill set for this critical undertaking.

Leading the discussion on these and other related issues will be Ms. Mio Watanabe, president of Mio Co., Ltd., a design consultant specializing in the licensing industry.

The roundtable will kick off with a short seminar on the approval workflow, followed by an open discussion between participants to share opinions and information as well as to talk about solutions to challenges they face as they go about their jobs.

The roundtable is limited to 10 participants active in product design and approval tasks and is open to licensors, licensing agents and licensees.  The small number of participants is to encourage a high level of active discussion in a relaxing atmosphere.

The roundtable will be in Japanese-language only.
