“The event reconnected the global licensing industry and major intellectual property (IP) owners, toy companies and apparel companies that distribute to retailers.” - Benzinga
“I'd say 60% to 70% of our time was spent meeting with different licensees and talking about Cats vs Pickles. And then the other 30% to 40% of the time, we spent talking about the company and the projects we have in development. We had some preliminary meetings with toy companies about our work, including a highly commercial preschool property called Baldwin’s Big Adventure.” - Curiosity Ink Media in an interview with Benzinga
“Licensing Expo, the May event organized in partnership with industry trade association Licensing International, drew thousands of attendees from the world’s most reputable retailers and licensees. The number of retailers in attendance rose 42% from the 2019 event, marking record growth for Licensing Expo.” - Licensing.biz
“The Licensing Expo returned in person this year, where characters big and small searched for a match made in consumer heaven … All the familiar brands seemed to be in attendance. A massive Pikachu floated above the Pokémon stall. Warner Bros. displayed costumes from the latest Batman movie, the jersey Michael Jordan wore in “Space Jam” and other pop culture artifacts. At Mattel, there were several human-size cardboard cutouts of Barbie, decked out in Balmain, standing in front of a metallic backdrop.” – The New York Times
