Vernon Kay to host licensing shindig as birds battle Disney, Marvel, Love Island and Stranger Things


VERNON Kay has been lined up to host the Licensing Awards 2019 ceremony on September 10 – where I Like Birds will be waiting to find out if they’ve beaten the big boys.

The radio and TV presenter will be taking the helm at The Grosvenor House Hotel to reveal the winners of the Retailer, Product and Property categories plus special awards for product innovation, marketing communication and honorary achievement.
In the Best Licensed Paper Products Or Stationery Range, the I Like Birds Collection from Quadrille Publishing is up against Disney Face Collection from UK Greetings, Hallmark UK’s Disney Reversible Keepsake Range, IG Design’s Elf Collection, the Love Island Collection from Danilo Promotions, Marvel: Avengers Illustration Collection from Moonpig and Pyramid International’s Stranger Things Collection.
I Like Birds’ co-founder Stuart Cox said: “Think I'm prone to overusing the word ‘delighted’ but it kinda goes with this job. We're delighted the truly amazing Quadrille Publishing, publishers of our book and stationery, are in the final of The Licensing Awards with our stationery collection.
“Our birds will be going toe-to-toe with Disney, Marvel, Love Island and Stranger Things at a full-on black tie, posh frocks and penguin do – needless to say we won't be there as it's near impossible for me to dress like an adult!”
