After-hours events include the Exhibitor party, taking place on Tuesday 1st October between 5-7pm. All exhibitors are invited to join the BLE team for informal drinks and networking at the end of day one at the Novotel, less than a two minute walk from Excel.

On Wednesday 2nd October, the Novotel will play host to the Global Licensing Group drinks between 5-7pm. This is the perfect opportunity to meet the team as well as members of Licensing International chapters from around the world. Everyone is welcome to attend this new drinks reception before heading to the Licensing International Official BLE Party.

From 7pm, after the Global Licensing Group drinks, will be the Licensing International Official BLE Party. Organised by Licensing International, this is the biggest networking event at BLE and will feature a fun mix of live entertainment, karaoke, food, drinks and networking. The official show party will take place at the Museum of London Docklands this year. An exciting new venue in the heart of London’s vibrant financial centre of Canary Wharf, the museum is just a short hop from Excel. Readers can reserve their Early Bird tickets now.

“The licensing industry is a proudly sociable one, which is why we are holding two new events on the Tuesday and Wednesday in venues close to Excel,” said BLE event director Anna Knight. “We’re also really excited that Licensing International has booked the Museum of Docklands for the official BLE after party – it’s an inspired choice – and one of many great venues in the vibrant and metropolitan local area. Our After Hours guide, which can be downloaded free from the BLE website, is full of bars and restaurants that are perfect for a spot of post-show networking, with lots of variety to suit everyone’s needs, time limits and budgets.”
