This week the annual Licensing Expo is being held in Las Vegas, Nevada, where licensees and licensors come together to make some deals for potential branded products and services. And for the second year running CBS Consumer Products has put Star Trek: Discovery center stage for their booth.
In addition to the Star Trek banners and posters dominating the booth, there were also genuine Star Trek: Discovery costumes on display, along with a number of cases showing off props and Discovery merchandise.
CBS is making it clear they are ready to cut deals for Star Trek and especially their new show Star Trek: Discovery. It could be that new deals are being worked out, such as last year when the McFarlane Toys licensing deal was announced at the of the show. John Van Citters from CBS Consumer Products has been showing he is ready to talk Trek, by showing off his tie selection for the first two days of the show.
