Pentagull are excited to be supporting Rogue Landlords Event

The last few weeks have been an exciting time at Pentagull as we have been getting ready to attend an event in London.

We have been looking as a company at attending events for a while and this one jumped out at us as the right one to dip our toe with.

We are going to a day on Rogue Landlords, the day is for local authorities and partners to discuss the issues around Rogue Landlords and how they can be better dealt with. This caught our eye as we are currently working on an exciting project with North East Lincolnshire Council on tackling just that problem.

So with our event chosen and booked we then had to get everything together to actually go to and display at the event, it turns out you need a lot!

From a stand to print and giveaways it’s a lot of work to get together but it’s been fun and we are really looking forward to the event. We will take some pictures and post an update on how it all went on the day and if you see us don’t forget to get some lovely authentic Blackpool rock!

Information on the event can be found on the Government Events website.
