Accordingly, key players are constantly involved in innovative development to widen the market, by using new technologies and advanced marketing approaches," speaking on the upcoming CBME India 2019, Yogesh Mudras, managing director, UBM India, said.

A special Licensing Pavilion by Lima is bound to attract visitors along with the presence of a number of licensing industry. This feature will foster the growth and expansion of licensing around the world, raise the level of professionalism for licensing practitioners, and create greater awareness of the benefits of licensing to the Indian business community. The pavilion will showcase various licensing opportunities and have licensing experts to answer queries related to global brand licensing.
