In a move to further strengthen Licensing Expo Japan for our valued customers and partners as the leading forum for licensors and licensees to meet and do business in Japan, UBM is pleased to announce that it has reached agreement with Business Guide-Sha, organizer of the Tokyo International Gift Show. This B2B trade show is Japan’s largest and longest- running exhibition for gifts, incentive products and merchandise. Licensing Expo Japan will co-locate alongside the autumn Tokyo International Gift Show, starting in September 2019.
The collaboration will result in the creation of the most comprehensive collection of brands, characters and licensing content in Japan, providing an opportunity for exhibiting licensors and agents to connect with over 88,000 retailers that attend, plus the 2,900 of existing and potential licensee companies that exhibit.
Licensing Expo Japan 2019, supported by LIMA previously scheduled to be held in March, will now be held on 3-6 September 2019 at Tokyo Big Sight Exhibition Center. A special licensing business seminar program to preview the new format will be held during the spring Tokyo International Gift Show on 12-15 February 2019.
Thank you for your continued to support and we look forward to welcoming you to Licensing Expo Japan in September 2019!
