Welcome to the 2021 Q3 edition of SME News Magazine, where we provide you with all of the latest news, announcements, and features about some of the best up-and-coming enterprises around the United Kingdom.

With the end of the third quarter of 2021 comes the end of the summer, a period for many of us marked by new levels of freedom that we have not seen since Covid-19 hit headlines, and lockdowns, curfews and social distancing became the norm. We have been able to enjoy trips abroad, a return to the office (though it may look slightly different to the way we left it), to see friends and family in person and truly make the most of life after lockdown.

Our featured company for this issue is Disguise Technologies, winner of Best Platform for Visual Experience Development 2021. Disguise is one of the many companies this month enjoying the grand return of live shows and experiences, having spent the time in its absence wisely, reflecting on the business, evolving and innovating ready to come back bigger and better than ever, now that the worst of the lockdowns and government restrictions are seemingly behind us.

Join us as we explore the story of this and many other SMEs from across the UK who have overcome an undeniably challenging period to be able to seize the opportunities that the final quarter of 2021 may present. We here at SME News wish you all the best for the months ahead.
