In light of growing concerns and risks associated with the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), the Licensing Leadership Summit is rescheduled for November 5 and 6. The summit, which was originally set to take place March 16 and 17, will still be held at the same location, the Hilton Midtown Manhattan in New York City.
Speakers from Netflix, Buzzfeed, UTA, and more, have already confirmed their continued participation. The Licensing Leadership Summit said its website will remain updated and it will communicate any significant changes to the speakers, attendees and partners directly.
“Attendees can be assured that we are committed to bringing the same high-quality Licensing Leadership Summit to New York this fall,” said Anna Knight, vp/Global Licensing Group, Informa Markets. “We believe the summit remains a premier opportunity for the licensing industry to meet as one to work through challenges and build the future of the industry, thus, we will proceed with the event in a safe manner later in the year. At this time, our thoughts are with those that have been directly and indirectly affected by COVID-19.”
