“The event has been great – everything that we do with IHM is great. The panels have been amazing, you’ve got the feedback from the workshops and you walk out of these conferences feeling really engaged and open to more conversations. The tours were great and we had lots of discussions. Going out to see the products is quite different and seeing how everyone is expressing their brands.”
