Air miles, rackin' em up! (Volcano allowing)

The Licensing Show in Las Vegas is fast approaching, and we can't believe it's come around again so quickly. It's been quite a year for the industry, and the show will undoubtedly reflect the positives the we're seeing.
Here at Total Licensing our feet have barely touched the ground. No sooner have we returned from the Surtex show in New York, put the finishing touches to our Summer issue, than we will be off again.
It's great, really. Volcanic ash or no volcanic ash, most of the licensing industry will converge in a couple of weeks and we very much look forward to seeing you there.
On a completely different note, you may note from our Summer issue that TL has an office puppy - Oliver, who is a black flat coated retriever, but does more bounding and chomping than retrieving. This will also give us an excuse to get out into the sunshine for lunchtime walks, of which there are many pretty ones near our East Sussex office.
And it's sunny - so sunny it almost feels like Summer, just in time for the latest issue of our mag, which has a Licensing Show preview alongside maps, exhibitor details, etc, territory updates on Latin America, Iberia and South Korea, and features on Automotive, Museum, and Celebrity Licensing. Now if that pesky ash cloud would only clear out of the sky permanently, it should give you something to read on the plane!
