I found myself on the list of invitees to the De Vere Venues VIP show round and so asked a few World Food in London subscribers to also attend. I thought it was a good evening for networking in terms of meeting key staff in administration, travel and tourism membership organisations and those in the recruitment sector; great contacts to have really.
