The Glazing Summit smashed its attendance record for the fourth year in a row as the fenestration industry’s finest came together for another vital day of debate, discussion and networking.

Almost 500 delegates descended on Edgbaston Stadium for what was hailed as the best Glazing Summit – and the event also featured more big-name sponsors, more expert speakers and more keynotes than ever before.

And according to Glazing Summit founder and CEO of organisers Purplex Marketing and Insight Data Andrew Scott, the numbers show the event’s growing importance to the industry.

“The Glazing Summit has grown year on year and to get our biggest ever turn out not only shows the event’s significance in the industry calendar, but it also shows the desire as an industry to come together to share ideas and tackle the issues we are all facing,” said Andrew.

“After the boom in home improvements through the pandemic, we now face economic and global uncertainty so it was an important time to get together and discuss where we’re heading and how we can best navigate our way through the challenges ahead.

“Times are going to get tougher but rather than doom and gloom this year’s Glazing Summit showed there is plenty of opportunity out there for agile businesses and I hope those in attendance left as optimistic about the future of the industry as I did.”

Attendees enjoyed five dynamic debates and discussions with a panel of industry experts on important issues such as the current supply chain challenges, people and skills, regulations, innovation and merges and acquisitions.

They were also inspired by world class keynotes, including Richard Harpin, CEO of Homeserve PLC and one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the UK, who closed the event, Barclays Chief Economist William Hobbs and legendary retail and customer experience expert Peter Cross.

The evening’s Glazing Summit gala dinner included a hugely motivational speech from legendary athlete and sports personality Kriss Akabusi to round off the 2022 event.
“The Glazing Summit is only as good as its panellists, keynotes and agenda and we raised the bar again this year,” added Andrew. “The combined knowledge and experience in the room was incredible and I’d like to thank everyone who attended and all our sponsors for making it a truly memorable event. I’m already looking forward to another equally important Glazing Summit next year.”
