With sustainability high up the agenda for all, greeting card publishers, retailers and trade suppliers are among those all set to attend SILC (Sustainability in Licensing Conference) in a couple of weeks.
Organised and owned by Products of Change (an online membership platform which is a sibling business to Max Media Ventures, which owns PG Buzz), SILC21 is to take place entirely digitally across two days – Thursday 24 and 25 June.
The June conference follows on from the hugely successful inaugural SILC that took place digitally last November and was attended by over 500 people from all over the globe.
“We have the full support from an incredible line-up of speakers and panelists – from leading retailers to sustainability experts; visionary brand owners to trailblazing product manufacturers all set to inspire, educate and connect, for the common good,” commented Helena Mansell-Stopher, curator of SILC and founder of Products of Change.
At retail, change is being demanded not desired, as will be evidenced by the retail speakers and panelists, including execs from Asda, Tesco, Character.com, Dayrize (eBay’s new sustainable sibling) and BuyersEye’s Julia Redman. On the product manufacturing front, LEGO, ZURU and others will unveil their developments while ensuring a sustainability supply chain will also be discussed. Leading gaming body Ukie will also share its progress while advances from the fashion and sporting worlds will also be covered. The Insights People will be sharing some brand new research findings while those from the Eden Project, The Ellen MacArthur Foundation, Recoup and Retail Economics are also among the line-up of keynote speakers.
