Select Brands and Rainforest Caribbean teamed up to cater to clients with a tasteful brand showcase at the Devon House East Lawn on Wednesday, November 15. This is the second such event hosted by the distribution duo this year, as they treated clients over in the western corner of the island to a similar affair just last month in Montego Bay.

For the Kingston edition, Fame 95 FM's Richard "DJ Narity" Innerarity served the sounds as guests snacked and sipped the hump day blues away.

The midweek mixer showcased more than a few delicious moments as industry players networked around a cornucopia of fine fare and cocktails.
