GERALD Ratner, the jewellery entrepreneur who bounced back after famously being less than complimentary about his own products, was the main speaker at a conference in Hemel Hempstead.
More than 100 people attended the UK’s first automatic door conference organised by Global Automatics, at Shendish Manor Hotel, in Apsley.
Global Automatics, based in Brickfield Industrial Estate, Finway Road, Hemel Hempstead, is a leader in the field.
Del Thomas, managing director of Global Automatics, said: “It was great to see such a high attendance of installers, some of whom were new to Global Automatics products. There was a real buzz at the conference and I feel sure that everyone gained and shared knowledge and business experience.
“We hope to meet everyone again at next year’s conference.”
