Black Country’s credentials are no load of old Bullring

After the Diary’s slating of Aston Villa last week, it’s a surprise anyone from Birmingham is still speaking to Marketing Week. Hilary Field from Citigate Communications must be from the blue half of the city, then, because she’s asked the Diary to be nice about her home city.

According to Field, Birmingham has spawned a whole host of innovations, inventions and industries, including the pneumatic tyre, X-rays and The Archers. These are just three of the ten revolutionary “Brummie brainwaves” that guests at Citigate’s event tomorrow at Birmingham’s Orange Studio will be invited to vote on.

The Diary wishes the event all the best, but wonders whether any city that has to include “local government” among its top ten achievements would be better off hiding its light under a bushel.
