3 May - 2017

Tags from the story: .

Thursday April 27 saw 400 licensors, licensees, agents and retailers join together to celebrate the Brand and Lifestyle Licensing Awards 2017, now affectionately known as ‘the Bellas’.

Organised by the team behind the UK Licensing Awards, the B&LLAs celebrate the achievements of all those involved in the brand and lifestyle licensing community. As Jakki Brown, joint managing director of Max Publishing (owner of the B&LLAs) commented in her opening speech: “It takes a lot to establish a strong brand, but it arguably takes even longer to intelligently and creatively build a credible brand licensing programme from the core; one which completely resonates with both the brand values and the end consumer. Everyone here today, whether you are a brand owner, retailer or licensee, are the collective experts in achieving that. Today is all about celebrating and rewarding your excellence.

The B&LLAs have been fully embraced by the industry. Brand Licensing Europe 2017 was headline sponsor, LIMA gave its full support while a strong roster of leading names formed an impressive roll call of sponsors. Guests dug deep in the hope of winning one of an impressive array of raffle prizes that raised over £7,000 for The Light Fund.
