Sanrio at Brand Licensing Europe 2012
London Olympia, 16-18 October
(Virtual Press Office
) Sanrio welcomes you to join the excitement at Brand Licensing Europe with creative content and innovative ideas. Sanrio continues to collaborate with the most respected brands in every realm imaginable; new cobrands include British heritage brand Barbour, back-to-school essencials Bic, quirky-cute phenomenon Uglydolls, and retro telephone handset POP Phone by Native Union. Fresh, new patterns bloom with Liberty Art Fabrics and edgy graphics pop with Diesel x Hello Kitty. In addition, the much buzzed-about cobrand with rock band KISS hits stores around the world, just in time for KISS Europe Tour launching next year. From head-turning apparel to limited-edition collectibles, the Hello Kitty KISS is sure to appeal to fans of both global icons and beyond. High-profile cobrands do not end there; in 2013 Sanrio joins forces with Elvis Presley Enterprises to celebrate Elvis and his legacy of rock-n-roll.
In addition to the cobrands, Sanrio continues to develop license programs for Hello Kitty, Chococat, My Melody, Keroppi, Badtz Maru, Little Twin Stars and more, always with the unchanging vision of Social Communication - the sharing of happiness, friendship and fun through creativity and innovation. With addition of Mr. Men and Little Miss to the family, Sanrio is excited to roll out innovative licensing programs in new categoreis and territories.
Sanrio takes its “small gift, big smile” philosophy seriously; Sanrio Foundation continues to bring smiles to children around the world through donations and hospital visits. Furthermore, this year Sanrio teamed up with Emergency, an Italian NGO that provides free healthcare to those vulnerable in war-torn regions of the world.

We look forward to meeting you in London!
