SVP Industry Relations and Information
International Licensing Industry Merchandisers’ Association (LIMA)
Join us for Marty's discussion:
Licensing as A Business Growth Engine
Using numerical results from LIMA’s Annual Licensing Business Survey and insights from that and other LIMA research, we’ll take a look at a range of trends in the licensing business and how they relate to the home fashions and retail marketplaces, and offer our perspective on where things are headed.
Marty Brochstein joined LIMA in 2008 after 12 years as Executive Editor of The Licensing Letter, a New York-based newsletter that covers the global licensing business. He oversees all of LIMA’s research and editorial efforts, including the Annual Licensing Industry Survey, the Inside Licensing news service, LIMA NewsLinks headline services. He also is responsible for all LIMA educational programming, most notably the extensive Licensing University program that takes place each year in conjunction with Licensing Expo in Las Vegas.
Brochstein was a business journalist for more than 30 years, primarily covering the consumer products and retail industries. Before joining The Licensing Letter, he spent five years as Senior Editor of Television Digest and founding editor of Consumer Multimedia Report. He also has been editor of several publications in the consumer electronics and retail fields. He is a graduate of Boston University.
