Ignite group returned to Warwick Racecourse on Thursday 4th October for the tenth time. Another record turnout of suppliers and distributor members attended the morning exhibition. The group then moved to the Kingmaker Suite in the main grandstand for a three course buffet lunch to continue networking informally whilst watching the afternoons racing.

Richard Pettinger from Ignite commented…..

“On our tenth visit to Warwick, I couldn’t believe that the spectacular weather was in our favour yet again. With a great group of distributors and several interesting new suppliers as well as our regulars in attendance it was a superb day. I really do appreciate the wonderful attendance with many travelling long distances to be there.”
