UKAA News Buzz 23/06/2020 – Easing into Summer

YOUR BTR NEWS BUZZ

Welcome to Newsbuzz which this week has lots of news about  “reopening for business” and the issues and opportunities that will arise.

This edition is sponsored by our friends at BoConcept who have been busy during lockdown looking at how to do business in the new normal. As part of this they are launching a new B2B website – see the story below and do offer them feedback.
