The V&A event follows on from the success of the Speedy Networking event which was held at the Coca-Cola head offices in June. Young professionals from the licensing industry spent 5five minutes chatting to each retail experts 1:1 before a bell rings and they move onto the next person. The focus was on gaining insights into what buyers look for from a licensing perspective, what insights they can give from their area and any general career advice.
Retail buyers and experts from Tesco, Selfridges, Forbidden Planet, HMV , The Entertainer and more hosted tables and gave career advice to junior licensing executives.
