Entries for the Brand & Lifestyle Licensing Awards 2023 are now officially open – with this year seeing the event moving to a new venue, as well as introducing a new category.
The event – now in its eighth year – will take place on Thursday 27 April 2023, at a lavish afternoon event at The Royal Lancaster Hotel, Lancaster Terrace, London that will be attended by over 500 retailers, licensees, brand owners and representatives.
The deadline for nominations and entries across all categories is Wednesday 8 March, 2023.
The entry and nomination process for all categories is free and via online submission – all the forms can be accessed from the dedicated B&LLAs website by clicking here.
The B&LLAs 2023 will look to reward brand and lifestyle licensing activity which has taken place in the UK between 1 January 2022 to 31 December 2022, across Product, Retail and Property categories. In addition, the Brand Ambassador Award will also be presented to a special individual (brand owner, licensor, retailer, licensee or supplier), acknowledging their contribution to the brand licensing sector.
This year will also welcome a new accolade: The B&LLAs Rising Star Award – sponsored by Brand Licensing Europe’s Retail Mentoring Programme. The new award recognises and rewards excellence among ‘new to the brand licensing sector’ in the UK who have shown real potential in the continued evolution of the sector.
It is open to all young professionals aged 35 or under (on 27 April 2023) with a maximum of five years working experience in the brand and lifestyle licensing sector.
