"Last year was my first visit to Lux Live, and it was so busy that we had a constant stream of visitors to the Marl stand! The first thing I did last year was to have a look around the exhibition; judging by last year, I hope I get the chance!

This year I'm looking forward to not only cementing relationships with existing customers, but meeting new customers and potential suppliers. Lux Live gives us the chance to showcase the new technology and partnership with Nanoco and I am proud to have introduced our very first customer to this new technology earlier this year."
