New venue

The first People in Glazing Society (Pigs) get together takes place in Manchester on March 12.

“No badges, no seminars or presentations, it’s a group of people who share a passion for the industry,” Sarah Ball, director at Balls2 Marketing and organiser of Pigs, said.

“We are part of a fantastic industry, and our regular events are a great opportunity to catch up with old friends and make some new ones too.”

This year’s Pigs Manchester has moved to a new venue: Revolution Deansgate. One hundred tickets have already been booked, but around 250 attendees are expected on the night and there’s still time to book tickets and join the party.

Sarah said: “We are very happy to organise the events as we believe it’s important for the industry. The team at Balls2 Marketing plans the years events, sends out regular emails and keeps the social up to date. We also coordinate all the sponsorship money, of which every penny goes towards food and drink for the events. Without our super sponsors none of this would happen.
