Licensing Expo, a world leading event dedicated to brand licensing, IP extension and collaborations, has opened 2024 registration and hotel bookings with new dedicated attendee programmes delivering elevated value to its attending audience of global consumer product manufacturers and retailers.

Organised 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.
