Entries for the Brand & Lifestyle Licensing Awards 2024 are now officially open – with the event returning to the Royal Lancaster London on Thursday 25 April 2024. Now in its ninth year, the 2024 B&LLAs gives the brand and lifestyle licensing and retail sector an opportunity to be recognized and rewarded separately to the massive character and entertainment licensing sector covered by The Licensing Awards.
The B&LLAs 2024 – which is owned and organised by Max Publishing – will look to reward brand and lifestyle licensing activity which has taken place in the UK between 1 January 2023 to 31 December 2023, across Product, Retail and Property categories. In addition, the Brand Ambassador Award will also be presented to a special individual (brand owner, licensor, retailer, licensee or supplier), acknowledging their contribution to the brand licensing sector, while the Rising Star Award will recognise and reward excellence among those ‘new to the brand licensing sector’ in the UK who have shown real potential in the continued evolution of the sector.
The deadline for nominations and entries across all categories is Friday 8 March, 2024.
The entry and nomination process for all categories is free and via online submission – all of the forms can be accessed from the dedicated B&LLAs website by clicking on the hyperlink here.
Brand Licensing Europe will be returning as the headline sponsor of the Brand & Lifestyle Licensing Awards 2024, while Licensing International will once again be lending its support.
A number of stellar names have also pledged their support as sponsors including Beanstalk, Brandcomply.com, Brandgenuity, CAA Brand Management, Country Living/House Beautiful, Golden Goose, Lisle Licensing, MDR Brand Management, Metrostar, Natural History Museum, National Gallery, Pink Key Licensing, Poetic Brands, Products of Change and Start Licensing.
