"We are happy to announce the 6th edition of CBME, an expo that is specially customised to India's needs as a burgeoning and young population. The CBME is an ideal place to explore market trends and learn the consumers' shifting needs. Over the years it has played a crucial role in the market by creating awareness, and demand for novel products that truly make parenting easy and a joy," Yogesh Mudras, managing director, UBM India, said.
Over 3 days, CBME 2018 will comprise a number of salient features including knowledge sessions, seminars, discussion of new trends and various international pavilions to surge into the rapidly expanding and diverse retail sector in India. A special Licensing Pavilion by LIMA to discuss 'Leveraging Licensing to Grow your Market' will cover top trends in licensing in the kids category, how brand owners and manufacturers can benefit from adding licensing to their portfolio supported by the growth in Indian retail and its impact on licensing, and upcoming opportunities in new licensing genres.
"In its quest to deliver unique and innovative value propositions to exhibitors and visitors alike, this year, CBME India will witness a special pavilion on licensing. The lucrative licensing and merchandising industry has been growing because of the easy accessibility of international entertainment to Indian consumers and a corresponding increase in the fan base among them, seen for instance, in case of global music bands or cartoon characters. We hope this 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," added Mudras.
"It is exciting times for licensing in India with the industry at a tipping point. The growth in scale and scope of licensing in the last few years, is a sign of its growing significance. Small and Medium Enterprises, especially in the kids category, have a lot of opportunity to leverage licensing and we at LIMA India are excited to see their greater participation. Coupled with the growth of the economy, retail and e-commerce, licensing as a industry is definitely on a roll," said Jiggy George, head of LIMA, India. (RR)
