In a show of collaboration between the ITS industry’s leading trade associations, senior representatives from ERTICO – ITS Europe, ITS America, ITS Japan and ITS Australia hosted a series of receptions at their booths.
Jean Mesqui, Brian Negus, Hajime Amano and Scott Belcher are pictured in light-hearted mood on the ITS Australia booth where the visitors were presented with an iconic Akubra Cattleman Hat as an authentic Australian gift.
Each hat contains the pelt of 10 rabbits and trimmed with genuine kangaroo hide leather. As it is made each individual hat passes through at least 70 sets of hands and more than 100 individual processes. They are a favourite among Australian cattlemen.
