Chris Alderson, Managing Director of Edgetech is looking forward to the debates at the Glazing Summit sparking some excellent discussions.
Chris was part of the expert panel that spoke about innovation and technology in the industry at the inaugural Glazing Summit.
“I thought the debates at last year’s Glazing Summit worked really well and sparked some very good questions,”
“The Glazing Summit is very important as it’s one of the few times we get together as an industry to talk about the challenges we all face going forward.”
Edgetech, the world’s leading warm-edge spacer manufacturer, was the first event partner to come on board, and Chris explained why.
“Edgetech have always been involved with industry debates; we lead the debate on warm edge technology last year.
“I’d like to raise the profile of the insulating glass sector at this year’s event. Our customers have made significant investment and do face lots of needs and challenges going forward.”
This year’s eagerly anticipated Glazing Summit takes place on Thursday, September 12 at Edgbaston Stadium and Conference Centre, Birmingham.
More than 400 fabricators, installers and suppliers are expected to attend, and some of the biggest issues are on the agenda including Brexit, Grenfell, the skills shortage, sustainability, plastic and recycling and the future of the glazing industry.
Andrew Scott, the founder of the Glazing Summit and CEO of glazing industry specialists Insight Data and Purplex Marketing, commented:
“With only five weeks to go, momentum is gathering pace quickly and tickets are selling fast as companies do not want to miss out.”
