This fabulous event has been and gone.  There is a report with lots of photographs over on our facebook page. The full report in our next magazine, with information on the highlights from each of the six plants visited. Thank you!




Thanks for your support and attendance. It will be “knock your socks off” event.  Thank you especially to the Owners for opening their plants and giving up time at the weekend. The response has been great, with delegates travelling from interstate to be part of this event.

We recommend you:

– Take lots of notes
– Speak with lots of people

And of the many ideas you will learn:
– Pick out the three most appropriate for your business, go home and make them work for you.
– The rest will be very handy over time.
