November 2019

We’re back from the Brisbane Show and our trip to Houston and pretty much over the accompanying jetlag (in more ways than one!)
We had such a great time at the Brisbane Show – it had a fabulous vibe this year and was a big show.
Houston always re-energises us and we love gathering new ideas for our customers.  Some of these you will already find listed below, with plenty more to come in the months ahead!
