LIMA Sets Date for New-Look Spring Fling
LIMA UK, part of the trade organisation for the $180+ billion worldwide licensing industry, has set a date for its seventh popular Licensing Essentials Course and Spring Fling networking event. The event will take place on Thursday 12th May at a spectacular new location – Hotel Verta, Battersea, London (www.hotelverta.com) London’s Vertical Gateway – which offers state-of-the art conferencing facilities and glamorous bar with far-reaching views over the River Thames. Complimentary shuttle transport to the venue will be available to and from Clapham Junction station.
Traditionally aimed at newcomers to licensing, the Licensing Essentials Course is a full-day seminar run by top experts from the industry. The course is designed not only to give participants a thorough introduction to licensing but will also contain exclusive insights into the very latest in best practice, trends and essentials. Past subjects have included making the most of digital media and social networking in licensing, legal and commercial terms for licensing agreements and how to license a brand internationally.
This year’s speaker line up and programme will be confirmed shortly.
In the evening, the Spring Fling networking event will kick off at 5pm with the licensing question time champagne debate, featuring a panel of industry experts. Invariably one of the licensing calendar’s liveliest events, attendees can expect a noisy but good-natured debate and of course a few welcome drinks! Members of the licensing community are welcome to come to both parts of the day, or just the evening event.
Early bird rates are available now and LIMA members will benefit from additional discounts, although everyone is welcome to attend.
