Japan is the world's third largest market for licensed products, generating $700 million in royalty revenues and nearly $12 billion in retail sales each year. Japan has a highly developed and sophisticated retailing market which has seen significant development of the licensing business, with a wide range of local and international brands and characters used across diverse categories.
Licensing Expo Japan, which is being organized by UBM, the organizer of the Licensing Expo in Las Vegas, in cooperation with the International Licensing Industry Merchandisers’ Association (LIMA), the world’s leading trade organization for the global licensing industry, will open its doors on 26 April 2017 to offer an exciting international platform for both local and international players in the Japanese market.
Apparel, accessories and footwear represent the largest category for licensing in Japan, with one-third of retail sales of licensed products deriving from this category. IFF MAGIC Japan (www.iff-magic.com), the nation's longest running fashion business tradeshow, will be held concurrently with Licensing Expo Japan, forming a bridge between licensing and fashion industries for new business partnerships!
Licensing Expo Japan is the perfect place for you to meet new partners and properties to expand your business, so don’t miss it!
