Businesses across the Jewellery Quarter will hold a series of ‘open door’ events next month, as part of a fringe event at this year’s Birmingham Made Me (BMM). Birmingham Made Me has been developed to promote innovation and the great products designed and made in the city and across the Midlands. The Jewellery Quarter BID is arranging a series of ‘open door’ events during 10th to 16th June 2013, which will be free to visitors.  The target audience for the event is absolutely everyone; business people, educators, investors, and creatives. In the Jewellery Quarter, visitors will be able to see the creativity, craftsmanship and expert skills that we have in the area. This year’s event will have two strands: Think and Do. Think is very business orientated with a programme featuring many high profile speakers. Do is interactive and aimed at families, offering activities to illustrate the innovation and design surrounding us. All of the events are FREE and open to all. There will be an interactive exhibition in the Ground Floor and Second Floor Atrium of Millennium Point.
