SILC is on 24 - 25 June

There’s still time to get your ticket to hear insights from Tesco, Asda, LEGO, ZURU, The Insights Family, BuyersEye, Character.com and more. The countdown is on to next week’s Sustainability in Licensing Conference 2021 – with the event taking place virtually across 24 and 25 June. The two-day SILC 21 agenda will see insights and developments being shared by leading lights from Asda, Buyers Eye, Character.com, Dayrize, The Eden Project, Ellen MacArthur Foundation, Hannah Mills, Hubbub, The Insights Family, LEGO, Pack IDS, Recoup, Retail Economics, Sail GP, Tesco, UKIE and ZURU. SILC 2021 follows on from the hugely successful inaugural digital event last November, which was attended by over 500 people from all over the world. “The sustainability agenda has moved on dramatically since we hosted SILC 2020 and we wanted to reflect this in this year’s line-up of presentations and panel discussions, focusing heavily on retail, legislation and how we, as an industry, can use brands to drive positive sustainable change,” commented Helena Mansell-Stopher, curator of SILC and founder of Products of Change (owner and organiser of SILC). Tim Kilby, brand and ecommerce director at Character World – which is one of the sponsors of SILC – added: “We have first-hand experience of how businesses coming together can drive wider change. Being a member of Products of Change, we know the power of collaboration and shared learnings and practices across the industry, which is important to us. “While we would love to be able to get together with everyone in person, SILC being a virtual event really opens the conversations up to a much wider, global audience which is a huge positive.” Tickets to SILC are just £100 (+VAT) and are available from www.sustainabilityinlicensing.com, or from Clare Hollick of Createvents (event support) on clare@createvents.co.uk or by calling 0118 334 0085. Products of Change members can get 20% off ticket prices. As well as access to the two-day conference, delegates will also be able to check out the content on-demand for 30 days afterwards. SILC 2021 has a strong roster of sponsors, leading brands who all share the vision. These include Amscan, BBC Studios, Change Plastic for Good, Character World, Dreamtex, GB Eye/Abysse, Hasbro, The Insights Family, Kids Industries, MDR Brand Management, Natural History Museum, Octane5, Open Beijing, TDP, ViacomCBS and Warner Brothers.
