LIMA UK Announces New Events for Young Professionals Network

London, UK, 13th May 2015 – The UK office of the International Licensing Industry Merchandisers’ Association (LIMA) is excited to announce the next event on its Young Professionals Network calendar.  The Casino Night will be held on 24th September in the VIP room at the Hippodrome night club and casino in Leicester Square. This event is designed for young licensing professionals to network.

Attendees will have the opportunity to network with their industry peers, as well as learn some basic casino games. The ticket price is £20, which includes a £5 donation to the Light Fund, along with a drink and canapés.  All participants will receive an actual gaming chip to play in the real casino should they choose to play on! The Young Professionals Network organizes a special series of events year-round for younger members of the licensing community.  LIMA UK recently kicked off its 2015 programming with a well-attended ten-pin bowling night at Bloomsbury Bowling Alley.

Next on the agenda will be the annual LIMA UK Rising Star Awards evening on 23rd July, featuring guest speeches by industry veterans and the naming of the 2015 UK Rising Star. LIMA UK’s Kelvyn Gardner commented:  “We are excited to provide licensing newcomers with an opportunity for lively exchanges and a fun chance to build up their peer networks. The 2015 programme will present many great opportunities to the young people in our industry.”
