Showcasing organisational excellence within the glass and glazing industry, the awards will take place at a Gala Dinner at Edgbaston Stadium, Birmingham on Thursday, October 8th.

With eight categories ranging from Start-up Business of the Year and Family Business of the Year to Entrepreneur of the Year and Fast-Track business of the Year, there is a category for everyone.

Why should you enter the Glazing Summit Awards? Here are four reasons.

Become a trailblazer

As this is the very first Glazing Summit Awards, what a time to set the benchmark among your peers. Winning will make you a trailblazer, someone who will forever be associated with the awards in the years to come.

The Glazing Summit Awards will be recognised universally as a mark of genuine excellence – both within the industry with customers, suppliers and peers – but also outside the industry, showcasing the glass and glazing sector as the innovative, progressive and world-class industry it is.

How great will it be to be the first ever winner, with future winners all following in your illustrious footsteps?

Get recognition from your peers

Winning a Glazing Summit Award will mean you receive recognition from your peers, with several industry experts set to be on the judging panel. To be deemed the best in your field by industry experts is huge.

It will also act as a third-party endorsement for your business for potential customers.

With the Award Ceremony and Gala Dinner set to attract 250-300 business leaders and CEOs from some of the biggest and most influential companies in the glass and glazing industry, imagine how you will look receiving an industry excellence award in front of them all.

What a way to stand out!

Be known as an award winner

To be known as an award winner will mean you will be recognised as a true leader in your field, enhancing your credibility among prospective buyers and elevating your business above your competitors.

Think of how it will help your company internally too. By pitching yourself as the best you can attract and retain the best talent you need to push your business forward.

It will also increase employee motivation and give them a sense of pride to be part of your company.

Press coverage

Business awards can be an overlooked tool in your marketing toolbox. In fact, just being shortlisted can improve brand awareness and promote your business to new customers.

While you will receive free press coverage in the lead up to the awards and after the event from the event organisers, you can also maximise your PR exposure by updating your marketing materials, website and emails with the award logo.

And as success makes good PR, it’s important to take advantage of PR opportunities and make sure you let people know what your business has achieved.

And, don’t forget, it’s not just the winning that counts. Being nominated as a finalist by the judging panel will provide you with huge credibility too.

The awards are open to all companies across the supply chain and associated companies who work in or support the industry and are free to enter, with a transparent independent judging process.

Entries open on March 1st and close on June 30th.
