The B&LLAs 2019 finalists revealed

Top brands and retailers ready for glory in this year’s Brand & Lifestyle Licensing Awards.

The finalists in the product, property and retail categories for the Brand & Lifestyle Licensing Awards 2019 have now been confirmed.

The B&LLAs shine the light on all aspects of brand licensing, giving a platform for non-entertainment properties to be celebrated. These include lifestyle brands, as well as corporate, food and drink, heritage, fashion and talent among others.

“Now in its fourth year, the B&LLAs continues to go from strength to strength. The quality of entries across all the categories has once again been outstanding and really showcases just how much the brand licensing sector has flourished over the past year,” said Ian Hyder, joint md of Max Publishing, which organises and owns the B&LLAs.

“We look forward to welcoming our nominees to The Dorchester on April 25 and wish them all the best of luck.”
