The Bel of the IBC Ball and Other Delights

 With the holidays over and the kids back at school it’s the time of year when we think of bikes, bars, beer and the buzz at the RAI. Yes, IBC is almost upon us again. Amsterdam here we come!

You’ll be able to see a load of new products on the stands of the manufacturers that Aspen Media represents and if you’re not going to be there, you can read about them below or in the next IBC issue of Touch! delivered to your Inbox next week.

Kind regards.
