Bord Bia’s Virtual GB Trade Reception 2020

Bord Bia London has hosted a Trade Reception in the Embassy of Ireland, London since 1997. For the past 23 years, this has been an occasion for Irish food and drink suppliers to celebrate the success of the year gone by and to look to the year ahead with their GB customers, continuing to build strong and successful relationships. This year more than ever, it is important for us to recognise the strength of these relationships and to plan a shared pathway to commercial growth for 2021 and beyond. 

In 2020, Bord Bia will host a Virtual GB Trade Reception on Thursday 5th of November at 14.00 until 15.30. This will be streamed live from both the Embassy of Ireland, London and the RDS Concert Hall, Dublin.
