“On The Wall Or Not At All!!” Stuart Goldsmith’s Rally Call Resonates At The Calies

“Good for you all for standing up against the mighty Google, APPs, phone synching and all the other technological aids to keep track of appointments. Other industries might have given up, but not you lot! Calendars? On the wall or not at all!,” quipped comedian and commentator Stuart Goldsmith in his superb pre-Calies awards performance on Tuesday evening (19 November) which took place at London’s Stationers’ Hall.

But Stuart’s performance was not the only aspect that made The Calies 2019 a memorable date in the calendar. The awards event brought together retailers, calendar publishers, diary producers, Advent companies, licensors and trade suppliers to celebrate the creative excellence of the sector.

While pictures of the winners feature in a separate story on this edition of PG Buzz, here are a few more snaps from The Calies 2019, that put together would make a decent calendar!
