Today (9th October), is the opening day of Brand Licensing Europe 2018 (9th October to 11th October) at the Olympia exhibition centre in London, UK.

Commenting on the success of Ben 10’s revival in Europe, Jo Broadfield, vice president, Cartoon Network Enterprises EMEA said:

“(It’s because of) our complete commitment to developing and evolving the world of Ben 10 in a way that attracts each new generation of kids. Our partners have done an amazing job of capturing all the elements kids love from the show and translated them into innovative, engaging products that give kids the chance to live up to their dream of becoming Ben.”

Ben 10 has reached the 1 billion views mark on Cartoon Network’s main YouTube channels as well as dedicated Ben 10 YouTube channels across the EMEA region since 2016. This year, Cartoon Network has been focusing on gaming, such as the Ben 10 Omnitrix Glitch microsite which teaches kids computer coding. To help promote the Ben 10 brand, Cartoon Network has also signed up social media influencers (with also include Ben 10 toy unboxing videos), retailer displays, themed entertainment and costume character meet and greet events.
