Update: Safetray on Tour

Anna demonstrates that we've got the whole world on our tray.


Safetray on Tour has been a huge success so far, generating lots of interest in the Middle East and America. The CEO Alison Grieve and Global Market Development Manager Anna Wilkie even met a government minister, who loved the Safetrays so much that he demonstrated them during an after-dinner speech.


The tour began in Dubai, where Alison demontrates Safetray's Atlas-like strength by holding up the globe of the World Trade Centre. The Gulfood exhibition provided an excellent opportunity to show the trays off in the Middle East, and to network with entrepreneurs from around the world.


Alison and Anna met government minister Richard Lochhead, the Cabinet Secretary for Rural Affairs and the Environment at the Scottish Parliament. He loved the product so much that he showed it off later that night when speaking at a dinner for dignitaries and decision-makers.


One final visit to an iconic Dubai location, the Burj al Arab tower, then it was off to Las Vegas for Catersource - via London and Miami, of course.


Alison can't resist another spherical object - the hot-air balloon outside Paris, Las Vegas.

Catersource was another big success, with trays heading off to Canada, Mongolia, Hawaii, Brazil and Mexico.


Meanwhile, Export Manager Wendy and Marketing Manager Caroline flew down to Hotelympia, the UK's biggest catering show, at ExCel London. They had a great time at the Bunzl Lockhart stand, where the catering equipment suppljers had made a big feature of the Safetrays. Bunzl Lockhart now has its online ordering facility up and running online - visit www.lockhartcatering.co.uk to order direct.

So what next? Alison and Anna will be hitting the road, driving up and down the West Coast to find California's greatest flair bartender. Then Anna and Telina will be at the Nightclub & Bar Convention and Tradeshow in Las Vegas, 12-14 March, while Alison and Wendy meet up in Miami at Cruise Shipping 2012, 12-15 March.
