The second segment of this action-packed day begins at 5pm with the annual legendary licensing debate – a lively discussion on licensing, ‘Question Time’ style. Following the debate will be the UK’s first networking event of the year, the annual Spring Fling Party. Last year’s event drew over 150 senior industry executives.
“In one day, participants will get enough information to understand how licensing works, how to go about it, the resources they need and who they need to work with – as well as exclusive insights into trends not available anywhere else,” said Kelvyn. “Our Spring Fling networking party in the evening also gives people the opportunity to build valuable business relationships, discuss important issues and catch up with contacts. Do not miss it!"
