It's a wide, wide... industry

We’ve been a bit lapse with keeping up with the blog lately, due to deadlines, and members of staff thinking they deserve holidays etc (!), but we were delighted to attend and host a table at The Licensing Awards on the 10 September this year.
It certainly lived up to previous
years, with just the right mixture of black tie formality, respect for the industry, and of course, fun and games. Highlights saw the entire room of 1000+ people break a Guinness World Record for the amount of people wearing a red nose in one room for five minutes, a game of ‘higher and lower’, which sadly saw Total Licensing and friends out by the first round, and of course wit from comedian Jason Manford.
Everyone scrubbed up very nicely indeed, and it was a pleasure to see so many people deservedly winning awards – so many congratulations to the winners, and to the nominees, for managing to flourish in tough times.

The Autumn issue of Total Licensing is due out very soon, and it’s a whopper – 188 pages to be precise. This issue sees information from almost every corner of the world, including Dubai, Australia, Taiwan, Korea, Brazil, Hong Kong, Benelux and many more. The scope of licensing never ceases to amaze us, and this is reflected, we hope, in this issue’s variety – an interview with Buzz Aldrin, contributions from Al Jazeera, 20 years of the Wiggles, an interesting piece on Michael Jackson’s legacy, and Betty Bopp still retaining her stance as a sex-symbol, amid much, much more.
