Caribbean Blinds MD Stuart Dantzic has hailed the Glazing Summit as ‘vital’ after coming on board to sponsor this year’s event, which takes place on Tuesday, October 18 at Edgbaston Stadium, Birmingham.
“I think the last 18 months-two years has seen the industry realise it’s more than just windows and doors,” said Stuart.
“Last year’s Glazing Summit was hugely beneficial as it was important to find out what the industry was thinking and what challenges installers were facing so we could see how to help as a supplier and to make sure our products and solutions are relevant.
“The calibre of people in attendance also meant that we picked up some important information that has helped us moving forward.
“It’s a really forward-thinking event that brings together every sector of the industry and we knew it was vital to get back on board.”
The award-winning Caribbean Blinds has been leading the way in the manufacture of luxury external shading systems for more than 30 years and Stuart is looking forward hearing the industry’s views on the new building regs and Approved Document O.
“As a shading company it will be interesting finding out what the industry is thinking about Part O, and we are also keen to hear how installers have got on with supply this year after last year’s challenges.”
Organisers are expecting more than 400 leaders from across the industry to attend and Andrew Scott, the event’s founder, said: “We are delighted to welcome Caribbean Blinds for what is going to be an even bigger and better event this year and they are the latest big-name company to come on board.”
