We bring you a flavour of some of the licensing execs and activity at last week’s show.

Last week’s Spring Fair – held at Birmingham’s NEC from February 3-7 – saw licensed properties making their presence felt across a vast number of categories.

The spread and mix of licensing has certainly extended across the show floor over the years – as Ian Downes, our Licensing Lookout, points out in his latest column – and it was encouraging to see companies in the housewares, homewares and gifting areas using different types of licences in clever ways.
