“What a great event! We found some fantastic suppliers, and are very excited about working with some of them going forward. It was great to meet and share insights with other buyers too, which I found extremely useful. Not only that, but to be in such wonderful surroundings, at such a well-run event – we were very impressed. All trade fairs and meet the buyer events should be like this in the future!
