Licensing International Awards 2019: Winners Announced

The winners of the 2019 International Licensing Awards were unveiled during the Licensing Expo in Las Vegas.

“2018 was an incredible year for our industry, which is reflected in tonight’s slate of winners and honorees,” said Licensing International’s President, Maura Regan. “It’s been particularly satisfying to see the increasingly international nature of the licensing business reflected throughout the entire awards process, beginning with the 150 judges from around the world who had the difficult job of reviewing the 600+ entries we received. Congratulations to tonight’s winners, who showcase the creativity and innovation that makes our global industry tick.”

In addition to unveiling the winners across 23 categories, the ceremony also honored the lifetime achievements of Hall of Fame inductees Pam Lifford, President of Warner Bros. Global Brands & Experiences, and Michael Stone, Chairman and Co-founder of Beanstalk.

Eight licensing up-and-comers also received the Rising Star award – these young industry professionals were recognized for their early contributions to shaping the future of our industry.
