Art of Licensing Meet-Up Tools

With only a few days and weeks left before the big, summer licensing shows begins, I invite you to participate in the Art of Licensing LinkedIn group “meet-up.”

Those of you who have been following the discussions on the Art Of Licensing LinkedIn group board can sense how difficult or even impossible to schedule a time to get us all together in one room to socialize at Surtex & the National Stationery show. Since Paul Brent was the generator of the meet-up discussion, I bounced around with him a few concepts and he came up with this genius idea.

If everyone identifies themselves as part of the group by wearing the Art Of Licensing logo/graphics, then we can easily identify and network with one another as we see each other throughout the shows. If you are exhibiting, you can even show your membership by posting a small sign in your booth.

No special time or location necessary. It is that simple.

So, take a quick minute out of your busy week, print out the graphics below and join in the fun. I will be looking forward to seeing you wear the group button next to your badge so that I can meet and support you at the show!
