    • The Start-Up Safari at RetailEXPO been absolutely fantastic for us. We've had brilliant exposure to a range of brilliant, fantastic companies that are in the UK and also actually abroad as well. Lots of conversations that would have been, not necessarily impossible, but would have taken a long time to get through and break down those barriers, and we simply have people coming up, knocking on our door saying hello! Really good conversations, so hopefully we can have some customers off the back of this as well.
