People in Glazing, or PIGS as it’s affectionately known, comes to Birmingham on 29 October.
The popular industry get together will be at the Pitcher and Piano in Brindley Place, just off Broad Street.
“We’ve used this location before – and the whole of the downstairs has been booked for the exclusive use of PIGS,” said organiser Sarah Ball.
With the two previous events of 2015 well attended, Birmingham is expected to be a popular location due to the numerous companies in the industry that are ‘on the doorstep’.
To get the room for free, a certain amount is guaranteed behind the bar. This comes from generous sponsors who dip into their pockets to make sure PIGS goes ahead.
“This year we’ve had brilliant support. We’ve seen several organisations sponsor all three events. The rest of the sponsorship is made up from one off donations and all money paid by sponsors goes behind the bar,” added Sarah.
The organisers would like to say a huge thank you to the Birmingham sponsors comprising:
- Avantis International
- Business Micros
- Central RPL
- Danvac Vacuum Lifting Equipment
- Dempsey Dyer
- Edgetech UK
- FIT Show
- Glass and Glazing Products
- Glass News
- Glazerite Windows Ltd
- GM Fundraising
- KJM Group
- MBA Associates
- Network VEKA
- Selecta Systems Limited
- The Consultancy
- The Fabricator Magazine
- The Installer Magazine
- Vast PR
- Window Ware
- Windows Active
- Yale Door & Window Solutions
As well as organising the events, Sarah also organises all the promotion free of charge. “We get exceptional help from all the magazines in publicising upcoming events. The editors support PIGS by regularly attending the events too.
“We want to reach as many people as possible in the industry. So we’re big on social media: we have Facebook, Twitter and a LinkedIn group.”
Because it’s in a public place, the organisers ask for people to register through Eventbrite.
