Adrian Woolford, Managing Director at Orvis UK said of the event, “it was a fantastic opportunity to celebrate our growing identity in the UK, but with a nod to Orvis’ American roots.”
He went on to say, “it was great to see such a wide range of people, from the Mongolian Ambassador, Tulga Narkhu, to Orvis’ brand representative, Marina Gibson, and intrepid explorers, the Turner Twins, who were all there to support Orvis and raise a glass to what the next 30 years will hold for us in the UK.”
