Awards to be announced May 23, at Licensing Expo in Las Vegas.
The International Licensing Industry Merchandisers’ Association (LIMA) has finalized the ballot for its 2017 International Licensing Awards. This year’s ballot includes a total of 126 nominees from ten countries. One quarter of the nominees, 31 companies, originate from outside the U.S.
The nominees were culled from a record number of more than 460 submissions. The awards program spans a wide range of categories, encompassing licensing, retailing, promotion and consumer products.
LIMA members can cast their votes online in April. Winners will be announced at the LIMA Awards Ceremony, May 23, at Licensing Expo in Las Vegas, which is sponsored by LIMA and owned and organized by UBM Americas.
“The LIMA Licensing Awards program recognizes outstanding performance across a range of categories throughout the global licensing industry,” said LIMA president Charles Riotto. “The level of excellence exemplified in this year’s submissions was truly impressive and it is a testament to the impact LIMA members are having all around the world.”
Nominations were solicited from the worldwide licensing industry.
