As a final update before the ‘British-brands event of 2013’ here you go with a statement from…Boris Johnson, Mayor of London: “Made in Britain’ stands for quality – we should be proud of the great design and innovation that can be found in London and across the nation. From fashion to furniture and bespoke bicycles to the trends in food, Best of Britannia is showcasing some of our brilliant home-grown talent.”
And as mentioned in my last blog, Best of Britannia will once again feature a series of ‘BoB Talks’ which I shall (again) be chairing. Here you go with the BOB press release on the subject:
