Sports Licensing & entertainment Marketplace
Sports Licensed and Tailgate Industry Green-Light January 2008 Show
Buyers, Sellers & Leagues Confirm Need for Strong Trade Event

Time is money. And when there is money to be made in the licensed sports business, timing is important. These two ideas converged in discussions with licensors, licensed manufacturers and licensed buyers in the days following the Sports Licensing & Entertainment Marketplace and Tailgate • Picnic Show, which debuted in Las Vegas last November.

The result of these talks was a clear, across-the-board consensus: The industry wants and needs a robust annual trade event.

Thus the next Sports Licensing & Entertainment Marketplace and Tailgate • Picnic Show will be held Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, January 16 to 18, 2008 at a new venue, the Sands/Venetian Expo Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Education Sessions Will Highlight ’08 Show
New Program Announced
April 10, 2007

The Sports Licensing & Entertainment Marketplace has announced a program designed to help buyers “get the lead out.” The Retailing Solutions Education Series will launch each morning with a power breakfast featuring an industry keynote speaker—and continue throughout the day with seminars, tutorials, panel discussions and a free power lunch. So sharpen your pencils...note-taking is encouraged!

Among the highlights of the program, which should be finalized this summer, are sessions covering leading-edge merchandising and marketing solutions. And thanks to popular demand, the Tailgating portion of the program will be expanded.

“We’re feeding the body and mind,” says Show Director Ann Keusch. “The breakfasts and lunches are free, and so are all of the education sessions.”

The Sports Licensing & Entertainment Marketplace and Tailgate • Picnic Show will be located at the Sands Expo, which enables attendees to move quickly and easily from the show floor to conference rooms. The three-day event begins on January 16, 2008.

The Retailing Solutions Education Series is free to all registered attendees. To start the flow of show information and get the best registration deal, click here to register online.
