Licensing refers to the leasing or renting of an intangible asset such as a sporting property or brand, allowing the “Licensee” to benefit from the recognition and credibility of the “Licensor” for an agreed period of time, within an agreed territory.
Sport & Entertainment Solutions is currently working with a number of Licensing properties including FC Barcelona, Chelsea FC, Liverpool FC, Real Madrid CF and the National Basketball Association to name a few.
These exciting opportunities are best suited but by no means limited to brand sectors such as FMCG, Retail, Telecommunications and QSR (Quick Service Restaurants/Fast Food).
The key advantages to Licensing include:
- Allows for Regional Marketing Partnerships within specific Territories on a Global Platform.
- Provides an opportunity for immediate customer interaction with an established fan base.
- Assists in driving purchase to the Point of Sale and can be easily monitored and measured post-sale.
- Seen as a cost effective tool and an ideal first step in testing a Regional Marketing Partnership or Brand Association.
