Here are some testimonials for RBTE 2013:
We met a great deal of potential customers at RBTE. It provided exactly the right audience for our business and is key to our sales and marketing strategy. Nowhere else can you demonstrate your products to hundreds of relevant customers in just two days. It was definitely more than worthwhile. Cerys Johnson, CFO, Tinderstone
This show just gets better and better. Ritchie Jeune, CEO, Evolution
At RBTE we were impressed with the wealth and diversity of new products and innovation technology. Following our visit we have scoped and pursued several new projects with the aim to launch at least 3 into our Little Waitrose Stores this year.
