Controversial Agenda Announced For The Glazing Summit

by | Sep 7, 2021 | Events

Some of the most controversial industry issues are set to be tackled at this year’s Glazing Summit, after organisers announced the topics that will be under the spotlight by its panel of expert speakers.

The event, the biggest one-day conference in the glazing calendar, takes place on Thursday, October 21st at Edgbaston Stadium and Conference Centre, Birmingham, and more than 300 leaders from across the industry are set to attend.

Andrew Scott, Glazing Summit founder, said: “After almost two years, and with all the challenges our industry has faced in that time, setting the agenda this year has been tough.

“We wanted to focus on some of those challenges, such as the supply chain crisis and price hikes, outline the key legislative changes that are likely to impact the industry, and focus on the future and the opportunities sustainability will present. The topics are controversial, and the sparks are sure to fly, but we feel we have pitched it just right.”

Four debates will include ‘Conquering the Supply Chain Crisis,’ ‘A Sustainable Future – how will the industry adapt?’ ‘Is it time to get out, or scale-up?’ and ‘Running an installation business in uncertain times,’ while there will also be a discussion on ‘The Regulation Minefield: What the Industry Must Know.’

The agenda will also include three keynote speakers, including Economist, author and Bloomberg correspondent Greg Perdon discussing the economic outlook for the industry; legendary business guru and sales trainer Geoff Burch on how to build a better future; and Andrew Scott, Managing Director of Insight Data Ltd and renowned industry consultant, with the specialist data supplier’s ‘State of the Industry’ report.

Each panel debate will consist of four expert panellists and a host to ask the tough questions and attendees will be able to have their say on the debates thanks to Slido, the ultimate interactive Q&A and polling platform app.

There will also be plenty of networking opportunities throughout, and the day ends with the exclusive Leaders Dinner.

“With live events cancelled for the last year and a half, the industry is buzzing to get together and discuss how we tackle the challenges we face, and how we can help shape the future,” added Andrew. “We’re looking forward to welcoming everyone to Edgbaston – let the debates and discussions commence.”
