Licensing has become a powerful strategy to add value to companies’ products and services.  It often results in co-branding and crossover across sectors and borders, enabling the companies in partnerships to expand their market segments and revenue streams.  Meanwhile, independent artists, young designers and illustrators also use licensing to build up awareness of their IPs and drive in merchandise sales.  

No matter you are now running a profound licensing operation or a beginner to licensing, Asian Licensing Conference (ALC Online) organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council could fill you with inspiring insights and practical learning to grow your business.  Below are the programme highlights:-
