Pre-Christmas date – Wednesday December 16 – secured for popular event.
It has the promise to be the party which the licensing industry needs after 2020, and a new pre-Christmas date is sure to add even more sparkle than usual.
The Licensing Awards 2020 has moved from its traditional September timeframe to Wednesday December 16.
Explaining more, Ian Hyder, joint md of Max Publishing which owns and organises The Licensing Awards, said: “With no guidance/direction on hospitality restrictions due to be announced by the government until July, we felt it was prudent to move the event towards the end of the year, when everyone will hopefully be able to celebrate safely together.”
Ian added: “As the whole world of events are moving to the second half of the year, we were very lucky to get this December slot – it is going to be one big industry Christmas party! We can’t thank the sponsors enough for their full continued support in this decision and look forward to seeing everyone there.”
While we dearly hope to be celebrating in person, plans are being worked on for the winners to still be honoured should a physical event not be possible.
The Licensing Awards 2020 has the strong backing of major names in the industry as official sponsors. The headline sponsor of the awards is Brand Licensing Europe, while Licensing International is an official supporter.
The finalists of The Licensing Awards will be announced later in the summer, while the winners will be unveiled at the evening extravaganza held in The Great Room at The Grosvenor House Hotel on Wednesday December 16.
