Winners of The Licensing Awards 2014 announced

The Licensing Awards 2014 was a total sell out. Some 1,400 retailers, licensees, licensors and suppliers attended the event, which took place in The Great Room of London's prestigious Grosvenor House Hotel on 16th September, to honour the industry's highest achievers. Comedian and entertainer Miles Jupp hosted the event this year.

Ian Hyder, director of The Licensing Awards commented: “What an astonishing night for the whole licensing industry! It was fantastic to be able to celebrate so many great achievements in licensing. The industry support and engagement in helping to grow these awards to something really special is astounding.”

Now in their ninth year, The Licensing Awards (created by The Licensing Source Book Europe, part of Max Publishing) celebrate the achievements of all aspects of the industry from retailers to products, licensed properties to marketing expertise. The headline sponsor for the event was Spring Fair International (part of i2i Events). A host of leading brands and companies sponsored individual awards categories, while industry trade association LIMA once again gave its support to the event.
