Record crowd for Birmingham PIGs

The organiser of the People in Glazing (PiGs) networking events has reported ‘the biggest and best’ support from the industry in 2023.

With nine years of organising PiGs under her belt, Sarah Ball, Joint MD at full-service marketing agency, Balls2 Marketing, said: “As ever I want to thank the sponsors for backing the events, without them, we couldn’t make this happen. Birmingham was a massive success, with record numbers attending. It was wonderful to see so many new faces as well as our regulars. We had a brilliant evening of networking and a live band, Ellie Jones and the Giants.

“The glazing industry is the best in the world because it’s so friendly. We come together from all corners of the country. In fact, the whole of the supply chain is represented, from system companies, fabricators and installers to componentry and specialist service providers – of all sizes.

“In my wildest dreams, I couldn’t have predicted the continued success of the events. Today, PiGs is such an integral part of the events in the glazing calendar year.

“After four events delivered in 2023, Birmingham was the final PiGs networking meet-up and we’re already planning to deliver a spectacular 10th anniversary year in 2024.

“In the meantime, we will be busy with PiGs across LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram and X, as well as our regular emails with event information.

“The last thing to say for this year is a big thank you to everyone who has supported the PiGs events, from sponsors to those attending our networking evenings,” added Sarah. “And, as ever, a huge thank you to the team at Balls2 Marketing who create and deliver all the PiGs marketing.”
