LIMA International Licensing Awards
The LIMA International Licensing Awards are the industry’s most prestigious recognition of outstanding creativity and performance. Each year the very best of all major segments of licensing are honored for their testimony to the professional and dynamic accomplishments of our industry.  Winners are announced each year on the opening night of Licensing Expo at the LIMA Awards Ceremony.

Licensing University™
The 2018 Licensing University conference program, produced by LIMA, will take place May 21-24, featuring a broad range of topics for industry newcomers and experienced executives alike, including retail strategies, sports, social media and more.  Registration for Licensing U will open in Spring 2018.

Licensing Hall of Fame
Each year we are proud to honor industry leaders who have made a unique and outstanding contribution to the licensing community. Individuals who have been active in licensing for a minimum of 15 years and meet the outlined criteria are eligible for this award. The 2017 Hall of Fame inductees were Allan Feldman, CEO and Founder of LMCA; Dell Furano, CEO and Founder of Epic Rights; and Cyril Speijer, former CEO of Wavery Productions B.V. and current co-principal of BN Licensing B.V.  The 2018 Hall of Fame nominee(s) will be announced in January 2018.

Coursework in Licensing Studies
LIMA’s esteemed CLS program begins each year during Licensing University.  CLS provides an in-depth look at the business of licensing for those seeking a 360 degree view of the industry.

2nd Annual LIMA Cares Charity Bike Ride
The 2nd Annual LIMA Cares Charity Bike Ride is set for Sunday, May 20! Join us for a 28-mile ride through the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area (easier 15 mile option available) – it’s a fantastic way to kick off Licensing Week and also get more engaged with our industry’s Charity of Choice, the Children’s Brain Tumor Foundation! Last year, over 30 licensing colleagues raised over $3000 for CBTF! Join us for the 2018 ride!
