The British Sign and Graphics Association are no doubt busy making the final arrangements for their annual awards dinner, which will take place in Nottingham next month. Judges will be deliberating and debating over their favourite entries for each of the 15 categories and sign makers across the country will be waiting nervously to find out if they have won their category.

As a Trade Sign business, we aren’t able to submit an entry, so why do we still like to go along? First and foremost, it’s a great opportunity to network with a number of like-minded and influential people within the industry. Also, often we have had a hand in part of a project that is up for nomination and although we can’t shout about it, we can sit quietly proud of our achievements. Not least is the fact that the BSGA go to a lot of effort to make the awards an enjoyable and professional event.

We hope to see lots of familiar faces on the day, so come and support the people who are achieving greatness in our industry and make sure you come over and say hi!
