January 11-13 the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas hosted the Sports Licensing and Tailgating trade show exhibiting licensed trademarked products to buyers across the country. There were big companies, little companies, international companies, and even individual inventors all next to one another trying to strike the coveted licensing deal.

Sports in America is a growing multi-billion dollar industry with sports licensing becoming a bigger and bigger part of the pie. Tailgating at all sorts of events, including concerts, has exploded into a growth industry of its own.

Everywhere you looked you could see products emblazoned with every NFL® team logo; college logos from the north, south, east and west; the NHL®; MLB®; NBA®; and NASCAR®.  You name it – it was there.

New Product Consulting attended the show representing its product developers and their ideas. There were some great connections made with many different companies that are going to review our products for potential licensing opportunities.

If you or anyone you know has a great idea or product and they need help bringing the product to the market please contact us at New Product Consulting.
