ADS and DBT launch UK Supplier Discovery Tours at Paris Air Show

ADS and The Department for Business and Trade (DBT) are pleased to launch the UK Supplier Discovery Tours at the Paris Air Show where international customers will meet with a number of UK suppliers based on a matching of the customer’s needs with the supplier’s capabilities.
