We know that you are all still in the midst of finalising those last-minute Christmas orders, but with the countdown on to the big day we couldn’t wait to wish you Merry Christmas!!  What a fantastic year it has been for us as an Association, as the industry battled its way back from a difficult couple of years, to come together to celebrate our 35th anniversary at the extravaganza that was PIE UK 2022. Thank you again to all those that attended, it was a perfect celebration of all that we have achieved and the strength and unity of our members.

As we look forward to 2023, we couldn’t be more excited, as we continue to provide the support that our members know and love with some fabulous new additions, including – exclusive discounts and offers from our fantastic suppliers, more networking opportunities and an increased focus on wellbeing.

The Committee are committed to researching new benefits and will be announcing new initiatives in the new year that will complement the incredible benefits that members already receive – gold standard insurance (the best in the business), supplier discounts, independent skills training and business and marketing support, regional ambassadors, a dedicated skills hub, and digital resources.

Also, not to forget our jam-packed events programme, with dates already released for our much-anticipated PIE UK 2024 (5 October 2024) and pre-Coronation themed 2023 Training Day and AGM (20 March 2023).

‘After a wonderful but at times tricky year, we want to wish all our members a Merry Christmas and a happy new year. We can’t wait to see you all in 2023 for another fabulous balloon-filled year and to reveal more about the brand-new benefits that we’ll be introducing in 2023, to help our members take their businesses further than they ever dreamed.’ NABAS Committee
