From a personal perspective, it was a pleasure to meet many of the industry at the show and I enjoyed compering our new Candid Forum. This will be shortly uploaded online to our website for those who didn’t manage to see it.

Once again, please get in touch to offer your opinion on the show and how we can keep improving. Due to Metpack next year, we will be taking a hiatus and returning again in 2018.

Until next time…
