Informa Markets has promoted Anna Knight to VP of Global Licensing Group.

Anna Knight has worked for Informa Markets (formerly UBM) for 10 years, most recently holding the position of event director for Brand Licensing Europe, the continent’s leading brand licensing event, which takes place at ExCeL London from 1-3 October. 

In her new role as Vice President, Knight will continue to be responsible for the strategic and commercial performance of Brand Licensing Europe; Licensing Expo Las Vegas, the world’s largest licensing trade show; the Licensing Leadership Summit, which is an annual executive conference that takes place in New York City; and the group’s media division, License Global.

Informa Market’s North American president Rick McConnell commented: “We are delighted that Anna will be stepping up to take on the role of group Vice President. She has done an amazing job of reinvigorating BLE over the last four years, smashing every target possible along the way. Over the last two months, she has proved that she knows this market inside out – and is incredibly well-connected and well-respected within it – and has really exciting and quite ground-breaking ideas for propelling the group forward, revolutionising the products within it and further cementing our position at the hear of the global licensing community.”
