BETA’s Executive Director, Emma English said,
I was delighted with the results and delegate feedback from this event. Clearly having to cancel our face to face event earlier in the year meant that an important opportunity to connect buyers and suppliers was missing from our activity.
Being able to host the event online, using the technology that we have all now become so familiar with really helped us to reach a wider audience, with buyers in attendance from China, India, Brazil alongside our European neighbours.
September is an important time for businesses within our sector to drive sales and make plans for next year, so we hope that this event will provide some much needed recovery into our sector.
