Saint Gobain PAM raises £1800 for WaterAid
This year’s Institute of Water Annual Conference took place in Birmingham in May, and its theme was: "It’s water we do best." With the focus firmly fixed on delivering high quality water and wastewater services to customers 24/7, the conference provided insights into how the water industry can deliver a world-class service through innovation and great customer service. The event considered water industry resilience not only for customers but also the future protection of the environment. One of the notable highlights of the conference each year is the ‘Evening with Saint-Gobain". This event is held at a mystery location, which is not revealed to the attendees until they are en route to the venue.
This year’s evening event took place at the Hotel du Vin in Birmingham where, after a champagne reception and a wine and water-tasting quiz, guests were served a buffet dinner, before rounding off the evening with dancing.
All of the money raised from ticket sales has been donated to Wateraid, a charity working to promote and secure poor people's rights and access to safe water, improved hygiene and sanitation.
Mark Esling, Business Development Director at Saint-Gobain PAM UK, comments:
"Once again we are gratified to have raised a considerable sum of money for such a worthwhile charity, while at the same time being able to gather together like-minded people for an enjoyable event. People know that each year the night will be unique, but will always provide another great opportunity for networking in a very sociable setting. It was great to see our guests enjoying themselves, and we look forward to the 2017 event and surprising people with a new, exciting venue."
