“We’re excited to continue highlighting and celebrating designers and creatives working in brand licensing through the launch of the Brands Untapped 100,” said Billy Langsworthy, co-founder of Brands Untapped’s parent company, Mojo Nation.
“We’re over the moon that the book has a home at Brands Licensing Europe and believe it’ll be a great means of showcasing the wealth of creative talent that makes this industry so special!”
Anna Knight, SVP Licensing at Informa Markets, added: “We’re delighted that the inaugural Brands Untapped 100 will launch at Brand licensing Europe in September.
“We’ve worked with Billy and the Mojo Nation team for many years on BLE, most recently in partnership with our Kelvyn Gardner License This! product innovation category at last year’s event. Celebrating designers and encouraging new creatives to join the licensing industry – and nurturing them when they do – is key to both BLE’s and Brands Untapped’s agendas, so it’s a great fit for us.”
