Speaking on the announcement of CBME 2018, Mr. Yogesh Mudras, Managing Director, UBM India said, “We are happy to announce the 6th edition of CBME, an expo that is specially customized to India’s needs as a burgeoning and young population. The CBME is an ideal place to explore market trends and learn the consumers’ shifting needs. Over the years it has played a crucial role in the market by creating awareness, and demand for novel products that truly make parenting easy and a joy.”
He added, “In its quest to deliver unique and innovative value propositions to exhibitors and visitors alike, this year, CBME India will witness a special pavilion on licensing. The lucrative licensing and merchandising industry has been growing because of the easy accessibility of international entertainment to Indian consumers and a corresponding increase in the fan base among them, seen for instance, in case of global music bands or cartoon characters. We hope this will foster the growth and expansion of licensing around the world, raise the level of professionalism for licensing practitioners, and create greater awareness of the benefits of licensing to the Indian business community.”
