As restrictions ease and the UK returns to live events, anticipation is building for the Glazing Summit – the conference that tackles the key issues facing the glass and glazing industry.

Andrew Scott, founder of the Glazing Summit comments: “Our industry is facing some of its toughest challenges ever, from supply-chain issues and labour shortages to spiralling costs and looming legislation. People are exhausted with it. Industry leaders need to come together and find solutions.”

The Glazing Summit takes place on 21st October 2021 at Edgbaston Stadium and Conference Centre, Birmingham. It brings together forward-thinking fabricators, installers and component suppliers to discuss the biggest issues and share ideas and solutions.

Delegate safety will be a top priority, and the organisers have taken additional precautions despite restrictions being lifted.

Andrew added: “The event will be carefully managed with restricted numbers, dedicated seating and a much bigger conference space, but we also know people desperately want to get together and discuss the future of our industry. Virtual events just can’t deliver the same experience, and everyone is burned out with Zoom fatigue.”

While some large-scale events such as exhibitions have struggled due to uncertainty and the time and cost involved, the UK conference scene is set for a boom from September as the business community gets back on its feet.

Jade Greenhow, Operations Director of Insight Data – one of the event organisers – said: “We already have some world-class speakers lined up, ready to discuss issues facing not only our own industry, but the wider building industry and the UK economic outlook. The feedback so far has been incredible and it’s also shaping up to be a fantastic event to connect peers, customers and suppliers.”

The Glazing Summit is a one-day, no-nonsense conference for industry leaders and business owners across the glass and glazing industry.
