The Year Of The Pig
Sarah Ball, organiser of the glazing industry’s networking group, PiGs, says: “It’s time to say goodbye to the dog and welcome in the Year of the Pig. And as far as we are concerned – this looks likely to be the biggest year for the People in Glazing Society, so far.
“Philip Dewhust Jr, Commercial Director at The Georgian Bar Company sent a message to me from Hong Kong with a reminder that we are entering the Year of the Pig!
“The Chinese certainly understand the character traits of PiGs: chivalrous, optimistic and frank. Pigs are kind and loyal friends and light of heart although sometimes they can be a little too trusting.”
2019 looks like it’s going to be a great one as we kick off with a busy event in Manchester on 7 March. It already has 100 people signed up. There’s normally a surge of signups in the last 4 weeks. It’s an eclectic mix of the industry. There are editors from the press, and all parts of the supply chain will be represented, plus machinery and ancillaries.
Sarah adds: “Our superstar sponsors have come out in force to support Manchester PiGs. We couldn’t run these events without you, and you deserve massive thanks! All the money from our sponsors goes towards food and drink - Balls2 Marketing organises the events free for the industry. It’s our way of giving something back. That means every email you get, every tweet, post on Facebook, and mention in the press is done by a member of our team.
“Manchester is a fabulous venue. The food is always excellent at The Castlefield Rooms and there will be money behind the bar to get the evening off to a good start. Late arrivals might find that the bar has run out – so be warned!”
