We are very, very pleased and had very nice traffic. We were able to meet a lot of people, both old and new contacts. We didn’t make many appointments ahead of the show but many people came to visit us and we had some very good conversations.
As a first-time event the show created a good reputation. It feels like a good start and next year the show will be bigger.
Mr. David R. Buckley,
Copyrights Asia Ltd.
We had several meetings with people from the apparel industries because IFF-MAGIC was held in conjunction with Licensing Expo in Japan. We were able to meet visitors from various other industries whom we normally would not be able to meet. Our company had productive meetings with visitors on-site and we’re looking forward to creating new partnerships with people we met at the show. Next year, we plan to focus on pursuing collaboration opportunities apparel and fashion properties.

We received much better responses from visitors than I had expected. We expect the responses to yield in global opportunities for our properties. We are looking forward to more major players participating in this show next year.

We were able to see many important exhibitors from the licensing industry at the inaugural show. I was pleased to be able to spend productive time with key visitors, who were very familiar with the market and looking for new properties and trends.

We were a bit worried that the number of visitors might be low because the show was being held just before the long Japanese holiday, but visitor traffic was strong on all three days.

Itochu fashion system co.,ltd.
We switched to Licensing Expo Japan from another licensing show this year. The quality was much higher and so we had many chances to create new businesses with good potential licensees. We were very happy to join this show. I felt that the Expo was very global because of a lot of overseas exhibitors and visitors were at the show. We think that the licensing business will become more global from now on so it is a good opportunity for us and other licensors to exhibit in this international environment.
Ms. Atsuko Goto,
Manager, IP Promotion Department,
Nissan Motor Co., Ltd.
We saw a lot of visitors from overseas, especially form the Asia region. There are exactly the people we are targeting, so the show was very beneficial for us.
Mr. Masashi Kouketsu,
FUTABA CO., LTD.
For a first-time event, Licensing Expo Japan was a far busier show than I had imagined it would be. I was very pleased with the quality of the enquiries both from pre-arranged meetings and from the walk-ins to our booth. We were able to have solid conversations with a cross-section of attendees representing both larger and smaller licensees in the brand space.
Mr. Roger M. Berman,

We participate in a number of exhibitions each year. This exhibition was completely different and had a strong international character.

The show’s been good. For the first day we were really busy and had quite a number of meetings! We were hoping to meet with publishers, toy companies, apps, gaming companies, apparel and generally we saw people across all categories!

It’s a really good show. I met a lot of big bosses and presidents from many companies.
