The Glazing Summit 2019

Calling all fabricators, installers, trade-counters, glass processors, systems and component suppliers.

Over 400 leaders from across the glass and glazing industry – with combined UK sales of over £1billion – came together for the industry’s biggest ever conference at the world-renowned Edgbaston Stadium and Conference Centre, Birmingham. It has been a resounding success. We will be posting the official event video and photography over the next few days.

This exclusive event for the window, door and conservatory industry brought together business owners, directors and senior management from across the entire supply-chain for a packed one-day summit.

From industry consolidation and mergers & acquisitions to smart technology and the latest trends, the Glazing Summit tackled the biggest issues facing the industry. The Glazing Summit mapped out the future of the industry, with expert speakers and industry leaders, a central networking and refreshments hall, and an optional Leaders Dinner in the evening. It was the ‘must attend’ event for industry professionals.
