What Clients Say

Welcome to the dedicated to building remarkable Testimonials!

I cannot begin tostress how important the Indian market is for international brands. The country is growing economically and technologically at aphenomenal rate according to projections by the World Bank and IMF. Licensing can play a key part in partnering with companiesand making profits in India. This is what makes the India Licensing Expo such a great idea that is run by a very passionate team. We,at Kodak, have India as a focus for our Brand Licensing efforts and the India License Expo gives us the advantage..

VP - Brand Licensing, Partnerships & Innovation at Eastman Kodak Company

Given it was our first time as exhibitors, the show provided us a great platform tocommunicate with the right visitors about our brand and products. Essentially, not only did it help us reach out to new, potential businesses for alliances but also gave us the chance to see what the other exhibitors have to offer and to interact with them. Conferencesorganised in tandem with the show were quite interesting and informative; imparting important insights, facts and figures ofthe existing licensing market in India. Particular mention also for the concept of India Licensing Awards that honoured the efforts of licensees and licensors alike in all fields. And the added bonus - another key networking opportunity for the participating brands tointeract and forge newer relations. So kudos to the India Licensing team for putting together a good show!

The Indian Licensing Expo was a great success for MTV Up! The reach of the expo washigher than we expected, talking about the brands that took part in the expo along with the media coverage and other componentswhich you expect from a licensing show was definitely worth the sweat. The whole team was a great support to us,we have noproblems in claiming that we have not yet encountered such an amazing team, each and every member of the team was found to beextremely hard-working and supportive throughout the show with a bright smile on their faces which has to be given credit for beingone of the main reasons for enabling the MTV Up! launch at the expo and also the Expo itself to be an astronomical success. It wasfound to be a great platform for licensors and licensees to collaborate for great business opportunities and put in their best resources and efforts for a combined successful outcome. We wish The Team All the best and would love to be a part of the show again in theupcoming editions!


Nitesh Khatter

CEO, NX Beverages

Licensing in India is coming off ages and the difference between this year and last year isdemonstrating that. India is amongst top 25 markets for licensing and is pegged at $ 1476 million. India really matches the globalmarkets in terms of the ongoing trends with fashion as their marquee category. Walk around the expo and you will see the strengthof Indian licensing industry.
