Following the resounding success of last year’s debut event, The Glazing Summit is set to return in 2019 on Thursday, September 12 – and will take place at a high-profile, new venue.
This year, the must-attend one-day conference takes place at the prestigious Edgbaston Stadium and Conference Centre in Birmingham. Located just 1.5 miles away from Central Birmingham, the iconic cricket stadium boasts fantastic rail and road connections, with over 700 free, dedicated parking spaces for delegates to use.
The switch to a bigger venue comes as The Glazing Summit expands, with the introduction of a brand-new Technical Stage – sponsored by internationally-renowned lock specialists, Yale.
While the Main Stage will focus on the big issues facing the entire industry, the new Technical Stage will provide a dedicated platform to discuss technical challenges, changing legislation and compliance. This no-nonsense, focused stream will be supported by a diverse panel of technical specialists from across the industry.
Last year, the Glazing Summit brought together over 400 business owners, directors, CEOs and stakeholders to share insights, advice and discuss the burning issues driving the industry.
This year, The Glazing Summit will feature a fresh new line-up of speakers, including respected industry leaders, trailblazers and proven experts. They will discuss a full range of topics relevant to the industry and the wider market such as best practice, growth, profitability and consolidation.
Event Organiser, Andrew Scott comments:
“Last year’s Glazing Summit was a landmark event which truly broke new ground. The industry saw the value of this unique event and really got behind it.
“The feedback from delegates was clear – they didn’t want this to be a one-off opportunity. We are therefore delighted to return this year with an event that’s even bigger and better – set in a fantastic new venue and with brand-new stage dedicated to the technical side of the industry.
“In today’s market, the insight of proven leaders and business leaders has never been so valuable. We look forward to welcoming delegates to Edgbaston Stadium in September.”
The Glazing Summit will once again culminate with the VIP Leaders Dinner. Hosted within Edgbaston’s stunning Banqueting Suite, the evening will bring together business leaders, directors and senior staff for an exclusive evening of fine dining and networking. To finish, the event will be rounded off with a high-profile after-dinner speaker.
