Big Buzz For PiGs Badges at Birmingham Bar
Pigs might not be able to fly, but PiGs badges were certainly a soaring success at the Birmingham get-together in November, with a record number of attendees clamouring for their very own sty-lish pin.
Organisers of the industry’s premier networking event decided to go the whole hog and commissioned the limited-edition metal pin badges to hand out at the Pitcher & Piano – and they went down a storm.
The badges, sporting the familiar PiGs logo, proved incredibly popular, with people rushing hand over (ham)fist to get their trotters on one.
“We decided to open the piggy bank and offer a token of our appreciation to everyone who attended the final PiGs event of the year,” said organiser Sarah Ball from Balls2 Marketing.
“The badges look really nice so we fully expected them to be popular, but even we were sow-prised by the reaction to them. Everybody wanted their very own little badge and you could see them everywhere you looked on the night. Birmingham PiGs is always very well attended, but this year even more so. The bar was bursting at the seams and it was great to see so many familiar industry faces, as well as plenty of new ones. It was a great way to bring another successful year of PiGs events to a close. Sponsorship is vital for the success of PiGs. Every penny is put behind the bar and used to get the party started. If you were unable to attend Birmingham PiGs, the badges will be available at next year’s events – while stocks last. Put the dates in your diary: March 7 - Manchester, June 20 - London, September 5 - Glasgow, November 7 - Birmingham.
