ACANTS Manchester 28th June 2016

The second of our ACANTS roadshows took place on the 28th June 2016 at the Radisson Blu Edwardian hotel in central Manchester and was hosted by BBC science presenter Dallas Campbell. This was the second of a series of events to take place over the UK promoting our ACANTS campaign.

The day included some videos and live demonstrations showing how premium and sub-standard products behave differently.

Acants Manchester was a great success with the audience leaving the venue happy and with more knowledge about the dangers of using sub standard cable.
