Bridging the virtual and real worlds, our Tuscan hampers from Fattoria la Vialla have been delivered to our prize-winning ‘top networkers’ from #SBS20 Live.

UK-based venue operations consultant (aka Lord of the Lanyard) Pete Watts of Rockvolt (left) got in touch: “A fabulous gift full of goodies. Tartufi al Cioccolato and Viallini bites went quickly, and with great appreciation! And tonight I have the pressure of combining some of the other ingredients into an epic pasta dish”.

In Switzerland, acoustic consultant Dirk Noy of WSDG (centre) was also impressed when he and Anja opened the parcel with kitten Sia: “A very big THANK YOU for the super lovely and generous competition prize! Such a wonderful selection and obviously made with a lot of love and care. Fantastic, really, and way surpassing expectations. And Sia loved the box!”

Stadium Business Summit 2020 was a great event, too, and I look forward to the next one – hopefully in the physical world again but who really knows at this moment in time?” adds Dirk. “For what it’s worth, I would attend another virtual edition as well – or a hybrid one.”

Thanks to both of you for being such wonderful delegates at our 2020 online edition. We look forward to seeing you at the next edition back in Manchesrer on 30 Nov – 1 Dec – with more real connections and, we hope, more real food and drink.
