Here’s what happened on Day 1 of IBC2022, as the show opened its doors to visitors and kicked off the IBC Conference and free-to-attend sessions.
“It’s fantastic to be here, said Tim Richards, Chairman, IBC. “We’ve had a few false starts over the last couple of years, so to be here, to see everybody around us, the buzz of activity, is fantastic.
“I’m particularly excited about the accelerator programme, because I think that really personifies what IBC is all about – the bringing together of lots of different businesses and different people to solve a problem within our industry.”
