The company will also have a presence at Glassex for the first time in over five years to promote the environmental and practical benefits of the Pilkington Activ™ range of products.
The Conservatory Design Competition (CDC), which will be hosted at Glassex for the third consecutive year, aims to reward exceptional conservatory design and build skills and has become the industry’s benchmark for excellence. Sponsorship of the CDC has become an issue of prestige as well as support, with both the quantity and quality of the entry bag increasing every year as more companies want to showcase their skills and talents. Indeed, such has been the growth in interest in the event that Glassex recently made the decision to receive all CDC entries online so that organisers can deal more efficiently with the high number of entries. Part of the appeal of the CDC is that it is judged by an independent panel of experts with conservatory-specific experience, including architects, fabricators, installers and the trade press.
Matt Buckley, Marketing Director for Pilkington Activ™, is happy to be working alongside Glassex once more:
“The Glassex Conservatory Design Competition has become the industry target for all designers and manufacturers to aim towards. Sound conservatory design involves so many different factors, so I think it’s extremely important that those who truly deserve recognition should have a stage on which to showcase their expertise and innovation.
“We are also pleased to be back at Glassex, which we feel has made big strides this year with the creation of new features such as the Energy Efficiency Zone, something which is also very relevant for Pilkington. We are looking forward to being a part of the show again.”
