15 Sep - 2021

Tags from the story: Licensing Awards.

Retail, Product, Property, Marketing and Honorary Achievement winners crowned in glittering ceremony

The winners of this year’s Licensing Awards have been crowned in a glittering ceremony, with the industry returning to The Great Room at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London for the first in-person awards event for 18 months.

Welcoming everyone to the event – which was hosted by Tom Allen – Jakki Brown, joint md of Max Publishing, which owns and organises The Licensing Awards, commented: “Well, welcome everybody, it truly is so fabulous to see you all. I have been willing for this evening to come and now it’s here, well it is rather emotional… We’re all back together.

“For all of you who have stood by us, be it through deferring your sponsorship, your ticket bookings, showing full loyalty as we moved last year’s events online, we really cannot thank you enough. Our relationships with you have been what has kept us going.”

The awards were once again backed by Brand Licensing Europe 2021 as headline sponsor and also supported by industry trade body, Licensing International.
