SILC opens today

Delegates from over 20 countries come together to focus on sustainability and environmental change in the two-day Sustainability in Licensing Conference being held digitally. The jam-packed agenda will see leading lights and visionaries from outside and within the industry as well as retail experts, all sharing their inspiring achievements and demonstrating the gains, both environmentally and financially, that can be made. Curator of the conference and founder of Products of Change, Helena Mansell-Stopher said: “It’s fantastic that as an industry we are putting our focus on sustainability, and I know that change isn’t always easy to implement, especially in commercial businesses, but it’s something that clearly more of you are taking responsibility for doing. “Here at SILC we have representatives from the worlds of fashion, toys, food, sports, publishing, gaming, retailing, greeting cards, calendars, partyware, housewares, giftware, entertainment, education, marketing as well as all manner of brand owners and licensors from all over the world, collectively responsible for millions of different consumer products.” Delegates can watch the content live and join in with Q&A sessions and networking opportunities. The content of the conference will also be available for 30 days afterwards to watch again. Tickets are still available for the conference which starts at 9.30 this morning. Tickets 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.
