To the Scottish bill-poster’s ball (as they say in all the best society columns) at Turnberry last week where the crÃÂ¤me de la crÃÂ¤me of the UK’s poster industry – or “pond life” as a lot of them call themselves – were entertaining in lavish style. One of the highlights was a speech by Portland Outdoor’s chairman Dennis Sullivan which had almost the entire audience in stitches. Almost. One poster contractor threatened libel proceedings after Sullivan made a reference to his drink-driving conviction. In the same speech another sales director was none too happy at the picture painted of him having to go into a chemist to buy condoms because it was the only way he could get any “mates”. No wonder they say poster specialists and contractors don’t get on.
