“I wanted to thank you and congratulate you for the event in Barcelona. The manufacturers I met with were of an exceptionally high level. It was a rare opportunity to meet with new artisans who are true artists in their field and individuals with such love of their craft.
It was time very well spent. Thank you for your hospitality and tireless energy corralling everyone ensuring we were all in the right place at the right time!”
” I have to say, without exception, each of the companies I saw represented an example of quality design and manufacturing. I don’t think I would have had the opportunity to come across some of the smaller artisan manufactures, in my normal working day. Each of the suppliers I saw was from a different sector and every one of them manufactured in Europe which is so important to Leon Black as a company for the projects we have in Europe. The suppliers I met at Hostys ticked every box.”
