LIMA and The NPD Group have announced a quarterly Executive Breakfast Series, launching Tuesday, June 12 at Steelcase in New York City with The Megapower of Kid Fans – how today’s digital-savvy kids are upending the traditional model of content, and what it means for your licensing business.

NPD Entertainment’s Kristen McLean will explore how children are upending the traditional models of content distribution and discovery and share data from across the children’s industry on how licenses and brands are measuring up.

“Today’s digitally-sophisticated kids are an increasingly powerful force that does not always behave in ways that are easy to anticipate. Their passion drives all kinds of new patterns of discovery, and when they get behind things, it can really move the consumer needle,” said McLean.

The Executive Breakfast Series pairs The NPD Group’s unparalleled thought leadership in more than 20 industries with LIMA’s strategic brand licensing expertise and advocacy to initiate insightful and thought-provoking discussions grounded in real data and market intelligence.

“LIMA’s mission is to drive the growth and expansion of licensing around the world, which starts with top notch educational and professional development opportunities for our licensing community and the business world at large,” said Maura Regan, LIMA Executive Vice President. “We are proud to launch this engaging Executive Breakfast Series with The NPD Group and are confident it will provide keen insights and learnings to senior executives across a multitude of industries, while elevating licensing as a smart and profitable business strategy.”
