The Glazing Summit is hosting an exclusive party to celebrate the launch of the 2022 event at this year’s FIT Show, which takes place at The NEC Birmingham from Tuesday, May 10-Thursday, May 12.

The Glazing Summit Cocktail Party will take place on the Wednesday evening from 5pm until late at the Purplex and Insight Data stand D61. Purplex and Insight Data are organisers of the Glazing Summit, and during the three days both will be running a series of free marketing seminars.

Visitors to the party will be able to enjoy a selection of special cocktails produced fresh by our own mixologist and an evening of great networking and conversation in a relaxed, informal setting with the opportunity to connect with industry VIPs, Glazing Summit speakers, sponsors and guests.

Andrew Scott, founder of the Glazing Summit and CEO of Purplex and Insight Data, said: “Our drinks evening will be the perfect appetiser to Glazing Summit 2022 and visitors to the FIT Show are welcome to drop in and find out more about the Glazing Summit and speak to our sponsors, many of whom have supported us from the very beginning and our first Summit in 2018. It should be a great evening.”

The Glazing Summit, a major one-day conference and one of the most important dates in the industry calendar, takes place on Tuesday, October 18, at Edgbaston Stadium and Conference Centre.
