Great Expectations: Pace, Selection, Convenience and the Customer The landscape of commerce and customer expectations is rapidly changing. Nicholas Denissen, Amazon, will deliver the opening keynote address at Licensing Expo 2018, speaking to how brands can grow their business online and what Amazon is doing to enable them. Nick, and panelists from industry leaders working with Merch by Amazon will discuss how they are capitalizing on ecommerce and reshaping their businesses to better anticipate customer appetite for unique content and larger selection.

“We are thrilled to have Amazon take the Licensing Expo stage and provide our attendees with information on the rapidly changing commerce and customer landscapes,” said Jessica Blue, senior vice president, Global Licensing Group, UBM. “Personalization and speed to market are two significant trends impacting our industry. Attendees will hear how Amazon is enabling brands to address these game-changing consumer trends.”

Merch by Amazon is a print-on-demand service that makes it easy for licensors, licensees and content creators to create, promote and sell branded merchandise with no inventory risk and/or up-front costs. As vice president at Amazon, Denissen plays a critical role in how the e-commerce retailer helps small and medium-sized businesses reach more customers online.

“Licensing can decrease time-to-market for licensees and licensors where collaboration is key,” said Steven Ekstract, brand director, Global Licensing Group, UBM. “As Licensing Expo brings together the most influential brand owners, manufacturers and retailers, it’s the perfect platform to discuss how Amazon is helping brands meet the needs of their customers.”
