The Gaucho restaurant in Birmingham was the venue for the Independent Print Industry Association’s (IPIA) first in-person event of 2022 – highlighting a rebound in business activity for the sector.
More than 100 print industry representatives, agencies, suppliers, printers and print buyers attended the lunch, setting a very high benchmark for future events.
“The Spring Networking Lunch epitomised the value of face-to-face networking. You cannot underestimate the power of human connection, especially within a community as welcoming as he IPIA. New perspectives, generating ideas, exchanging information on challenges and lots of inspiration thrown in,” said Lucy Swanston, Chair of the IPIA Events Subcommittee and Managing Director of Nutshell Creative.
Commenting on the very significant industry turnout, President of the IPIA and Managing Director of PMG, Mike Roberts, said:“If there was any doubt that our sector wanted to network, then this event dispels it and proves that the appetite is very much there. With the credibility of the IPIA at an all-time high, it was fabulous to be in such a fantastic venue as Gaucho and watch members doing what they do best; networking and generating new business.”
