LICENSING TAKES CENTER STAGE

The 2020 Awards Ceremony, always a high point of Licensing Expo, will take place Tuesday, May 19, at Mandalay Bay  from 5:30pm –7:30pm. 

The Licensing International Excellence Awards Ceremony represents the culmination of another year of innovation and hard work, showcasing the ever-evolving, dynamic world of brand licensing. The Awards Ceremony is always held in conjunction with the industry’s largest trade gathering – Licensing Expo – at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. In addition to announcing the winners in the 23 award categories, the event also features a Year in Review, induction of the newest Hall of Fame member(s), an update on Licensing International’s fundraising efforts for the Children’s Brain Tumor Foundation and a special call out to the year’s Rising Stars. It’s a lot to fit into 2 hours, but that’s what makes it so fun.

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION

In its early years, when Licensing Expo was held in New York, the Awards Ceremony graced some of the most iconic locations throughout the city. The first-ever Awards Ceremony, held in 1986, took place at Windows on the World at the World Trade Center and in the intervening years, until Licensing Expo moved to Las Vegas, the ceremony was hosted at a number of other landmark NYC venues. Since 2008, the Awards Ceremony has taken place at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Convention Center where it resides to this day.
