“As a licensee we have been a participant at the show for many years and we used the opportunity at BLE to grow our licensing business to become one of the leading licensee companies in Europe,” says Jeremy Orriss, Director of Licensing at apparel and accessories specialist Difuzed. “Realising how the show has evolved as the event in Europe for all areas of the licensing business – including retailers – we knew we needed to show what we do as a licensee on the exhibition floor.”
Style Library licensing director Helen Webster adds: “We are seeing significant growth in our licensing programme and wanted to support that growth by exhibiting at a licensing event; the biggest and most relevant for our brands is BLE.
