A high demand for tickets to this year’s Glazing Summit is a strong indication of the glazing industry’s desire to get back out there and meet people face-to-face.
That’s the view of Andrew Scott, the Summit’s founder and CEO of organisers Insight Data and Purplex Marketing.
The Glazing Summit is set to take place on Thursday, October 21 at Edgbaston Stadium and Conference Centre and Andrew said: “60,000 people at Wembley for the Euros and Reading Festival selling out has shown that sport and music fans have been desperate to get back to live events – and the glazing industry is no different.
“In the last few weeks, we have had a rush on ticket sales for this year’s Glazing Summit and they are selling out fast as we approach ‘Freedom Day’ on July 19.
“It’s clear that industry leaders and business owners just want to get back out there after almost 18 months of sitting on Zoom and the telephone and interact with their peers. The fenestration industry has been built on networking and there will be plenty of opportunities to do that throughout the day at the Glazing Summit.”
As well as the pull to meet face-to-face, the Glazing Summit’s mix of debates and discussions on the biggest issues facing the industry make it a “must attend” event – even more so after the unparalleled challenges businesses have had to face.
“This has been one of the toughest years in living memory,” added Andrew. “From facing the impact of lockdown, business griding to a halt, and the floodgates opening to an under-prepared industry, to the short-lived Green Homes Grant scheme, supply chain crisis, and shortages of both materials and labour, there is a huge amount to discuss.
“Why the Glazing Summit is such an essential fixture in the fenestration calendar is because it provides a vital space to discuss the challenges the industry is facing and help shape its future. These conversations need to be had.”
