It was fantastic to see our industry reuniting again in August of 2022.

The trade show calendar offered plenty of networking opportunities. The show itself, AFTA’s AGM, Happy Hour and the Gala Dinner & Awards Night, which saw over 400 people attend (not forgetting those who left it too late to secure a seat), shows just how vital face-to-face contact is with our industry mates.

There’s already plenty of talk for the 2023 show; if you missed it in 2022, start planning now to ensure you don’t do that again!
