“It feels like a real positive step towards supporting the younger generation and their businesses.”

For many of the young people involved, social media and the internet have played a huge role in their success.

Bethan said that they hope this event will expose their work to a real world audience that hasn’t been possible during the pandemic.

All of the businesses involved have the chance to be nominated through to the Young Traders Market Regional Final, in collaboration with the NMTF.
