This week the annual Licensing Expo is being held in Las Vegas, Nevada. It is THE place to be for companies to show off their hottest brands for potential licencors, and CBS Consumer Products was there among them. While they are the owners of multiple properties, CBS has always made Star Trek a major part of their presence at Licensing Expo. This year CBS has Star Trek: Discovery at center stage with a big sign with the show’s logo prominently displayed in the middle of the booth along with Discovery flyers on the booth desk, making it clear they are ready to cut licensing deals for new Discovery products.
Earlier this week CBS announced their first licensing deal for Star Trek: Discovery, with McFarlane Toys. Hopefully they will able to strike even more deals for Discovery and more Trek this week at Licensing Expo.
