â€œIt was a tremendous success,â€ explained Ervin Welsh, the founder of Positively Inclined and co-host of the GEW events in St. Kitts and Nevis. â€œAll exhibitors came with an extremely high quality representation of themselves, one which didnâ€™t go unnoticed and one which suggests we will be hearing more about these businesses in the not too distant future.â€
