One finalist will be chosen to receive InventHelp's services, valued at $18,000.

"It is a privilege to team up with Licensing Expo to support inventors with Pitch the Brands. This unique and inspiring opportunity provides direct feedback from leading executives in a variety of industries," said Robert Susa, President of InventHelp. "The foundation of Pitch the Brands mirrors the mission of InventHelp - supporting innovation and providing inventors the resources they need to pursue their passion."

Brand licensing can help to successfully launch new products into market by providing credibility, appealing to an established audience, securing distribution, and utilizing a brand's promotional resources. In 2017, global retail sales of licensed products and services reached $271.6B, according to the 2018 LIMA Annual Global Licensing Industry Survey.

"Products are a cornerstone of the brand licensing industry. Innovations in design, production and distribution help keep our industry growing year over year," said Jessica Blue, Senior Vice President of the Global Licensing Group, UBM. "We're thrilled to give entrepreneurs a platform to showcase their product on the biggest stage in brand licensing. These new ideas help shape the industry through unique products and selection."
