ViacomCBS to sponsor Festival of Licensing’s Community & Wellness track with yoga and and MTV workout – Toy News

Posted: at 7:56 pm


without comments

If you thought that the all-virtual nature of this years Festival of Licensing meant simply sitting in front of a computer screen, youd better think again, because ViacomCBS sponsors of the events Community and Wellbeing programme is challenging you to don the yoga pants, dig-out the neon headbands, and take a break from the serious stuff with its most iconic brands.

This October will see ViacomCBS Consumer Products swap the usual networking session for a perhaps more cathartic programme of three complementary sessions when Festival of Licensing kicks off its four-week run, delivering a Family Friendly Dance and Yoga session that will draw from its library of Nick Jr. exercise videos, encouraging festival goers to take a break from business and have fun and exercise with the kids.

If youre in need of something a little more high-energy however, the firm is also hosting a Retro Workout Class, featuring iconic MTV products in a workout class complete with an MTV soundtrack taken straight from the 80s and 90s. ViacomCBS will round it all off with a special self care session directly from the ViacomCBS Wellness studio itself.

On top of all of this, the programme will also feature Business mentoring and advice clinics in which festival goers can take advantage of the advice clinics offering legal, financial, and career advice, as well as speed networking sessions for those looking for new job opportunities.

The programme will be concluded with the Global charity fundraiser in support of The Light Fund, Magic Wheelchair, and Licensing International Small Business Global Grants Fund.

Were delighted to be working alongside ViacomCBS to bring valuable and much needed community and wellbeing content to Festival of Licensing attendees from all the over the world, said Anna Knight, VP Global Licensing Group, Informa Markets.

Surviving through Covid has been incredibly challenging for many whether financially, physically or emotionally and its important that Festival both acknowledges this and provides meaningful support where we can.

Festival of Licensing runs online from 6-29 October 2020. Brands who are interested in exhibiting or sponsorship opportunities should visitwww.festivaloflicensing.com. Free visitor registration is also open atwww.festivaloflicensing.com.

Northline Navigation has put together a map of Green Lakes State Park with invisible checkpoints. Locate as many of the checkpoints as you can, using just a map and/or compass; no GPS navigating allowed. Participants will download an app to track their results. When you arrive at a checkpoint, the app senses your position via GPS and marks your visit with a little tune to indicate that youve found it. While there is an admission fee for Green Lakes to use the beach, Northline Navigation said if you tell them you are there to use the trails, you will not be charged.

September is Marylands second year celebrating International Underground Railroad Month. The statewide commemoration salutes all who worked to end slavery and pave the way for the more comprehensive civil rights movement that followed in the United States. Annapolis and Anne Arundel county attractions and historical sites are among many across the state that helped earn Maryland the designation of being the most potent Underground Railroad storytelling destination. Several historical events are happening around the county, including an online lecture at 7 p.m. Thursday on slavery and servitude in early Annapolis. The lecture explains how Annapoliss Georgian mansions, colonial furnishings, and artworks as well as the Maryland State House are stunning examples of the skill and expertise of enslaved artisans and convict servants, Historic Annapolis organizers said. Although these artisans worked for and with the citys most famous free white artisans, including Charles Willson Peale, William Buckland, John Shaw, and William Faris, enslaved and indentured artisans are often left out of studies addressing craft in early Annapolis.
