Session Title: Emerging Retailing Business Models in Licensing
Session Description: The retail landscape in licensing is vitally important since it is perceived as the extension of the licensing world into real life. While limited shelf space dedicated for smaller IPs presents clear challenges, private label is an area that offers good opportunities. Direct-to-retail, gains popularity as it is increasingly utilised to improve margins. Given the temporality of many licenses, pop-up stores bode well with licensing and many experiment with the format ever more. Single brand concept, led largely by Disney stores, provides an ideal platform transiting the “New consumerism” and “Retailtainment” to experiential retail.
