Sustainability: A Strategic Roadmap for Brands & Licensing

Opening on Earth Day 2021, MindMix is an executive event that brings together business and thought leaders from within and outside the licensing industry for high-level dialogue on the forces surrounding sustainability and consumerism that will affect the licensing business going forward. Smart thinking happens at MindMix. Join the conversation.
