Tour de France

Independent Network members and Veka Group staff visited Veka France in Thonon-les-Bains, when Veka France MD Jos Lenferink played host to 42 guests for a three-day event.

The first full day began with a factory and showroom tour led by Jos Lenferink and a presentation of the French Installer programme ‘Le Fenetrier Nicois’.

Later, Veka Group’s marketing director Dawn Brickwood gave an overview of the evolution of Network Veka into Independent Network which was well received by attendees. Lunch was served lakeside at Thonon, followed by an afternoon of networking between the UK guests and French hosts and evening saw members enjoying dinner and a night at the Casino in Evian.

For the third and final day, guests had free time to explore Geneva before flying home.

Karen Lund, head of partner programmes said: “Independent Network’s most valuable asset is its members and networking is obviously right at the core of the organisation. Trips like this are the perfect opportunity for members to get together and do just that.”
