In just mere two years, The India Brand Licensing Summit (TIBLS 2018) has become a mainstay on the events calendar for the global brand licensing community, bringing together thought leaders from the industry’s largest players and key decision-makers from the top licensees, retailers.
After the grand success of TIBLS 2017, Licensing Corner is all set to present yet another one on October 26 in Mumbai.
Joining the bandwagon is the globally accredited MEAI (Media & Entertainment Association of India) after being a part of various international summits & conferences amongst other eminent participants. MEAI helps represent businesses to government and helps address the key issues related to the industry. It was also responsible for bolstering the ‘Make in India’ belief by leading the strong 8-member delegation to Canada.
The event will feature prominent figures from the brand and retail space for a day full of insights and opportunity, exploring the driving factors and changing dynamics of the India brand licensing sector.
Commenting on the association with #TIBLS, MEAI Secretary Ankur Bhasin said, “With the rapid expansion of digital avenues for distribution, Indian IP is seeing a sunrise period which lends a higher emphasis on Branding and brand extensions including licensing and merchandising. MEAI is excited to partner Rooh Entertainment and Licensing Corner for the second edition of #TIBLS and strongly believe that this summit will not only help guide the IP producers but also be a marketplace for licensing and branding.”
“We are thrilled to have MEAI on board with us, Mr. Ankur Bhasin’s in-depth knowledge and vision will add another feather to the cap of #TIBLS. It is only with the support of industry leaders and fore-thinkers such as these that we can undertake industry changing endeavors,” said Rutika Malaviya, CEO and Editor-in-Chief of Licensing Corner.
The Indian Brand Licensing summit was founded in September 2017 with a vision to bring together thought leaders and executives from all segments of brand licensing and retail to discuss the trends that will shape the future of our industry.
