Taking place at Birmingham’s Edgbaston Stadium and Conference Centre on October 12th, this must-attend conference is backed by the industry’s biggest names including Yale, VEKA, Edgetech, Eurocell, Reynaers, Liniar and many more.
Andrew Scott, founder of the Glazing Summit, commented;
“It’s hugely exciting to announce this year’s Glazing Summit agenda. At a time of further regulatory change and evolving consumer demands, the glazing industry finds itself at a pivotal crossroads.
“This year we want to not only inform, but also provide steps we can all take to enable real change in the industry. And with world-class insight and keynote speakers, it’s set to be another crucial event for our industry.”
Technical experts will discuss the looming Future Homes Standard and new Building Regulations including Document Q, while new initiatives will be announced to tackle the skills shortage and perceptions of the industry.
Over 400 fabricators, installers and glass companies will attend the Summit, with 20 speakers and a revised format for some of the sessions.
“We want this year to be punchier, more solution-focused and give delegates essential information they can apply to their business immediately, especially as many companies are facing a slow-down in the market after a period of boom” adds Andrew.
This year installers are put under the spotlight as many report changing consumer trends, pressure on prices, demand for new products and greater adoption of technology.
Alongside the industry debates and keynote talks, the Glazing Summit will also present leading UK Economist Ed Johnstone who will share a banks view on the home improvement and property market, while the UK’s leading inspirational business speaker Brad Burton will take to the stage.
Having worked with companies like JCB, Bentley and Costa Coffee, Brad’s energy and self-deprecating humour will have delegates inspired and equipped with ideas to take their lives and businesses to the next level.
This year’s Glazing Summit will also be more interactive, with delegates taking part in questions to the panellists and polls/surveys.
Andrew concludes; “With free on-site parking, refreshments and lunch, the Summit is a great opportunity to network and connect with friends, customers and suppliers, and build new business relationships. For business leaders and managers, it really is the one-day event not to miss.”
