The Glazing Summit held at Edgbaston Stadium on 12th September proved an outstanding success with first-class presentations, expert panel discussions and audience interaction, as a sell 320 delegates attended this unique industry event.
As headline sponsors the GGF’s James Lee, Director of External Affairs opened proceedings with speech endorsing the event and stressing the need for events such as the Glazing Summit to bring the industry’s supply chain together to share and gain knowledge, insight and perspectives.
The GGF and its subsidiaries were represented on various panels by; Adrian Blaydon, GGF Technical Officer, Anda Gregory, Managing Director, GGF Commercial companies, Lis Clarke, BFRC Operations Director and Chris Beedel, Director of Membership for FENSA.
All of the GGF experts contributed to the panel discussions which ranged from sustainability to fire safety, regulations, skills shortage, compliance, rogue companies and irresponsible pricing. It all made for very healthy debate and clearly engaged and stimulated the audience who asked many questions using the interactive online Q&A tool, with questions appearing live on the screens on-stage.

So much so, that that we are now planning to make this an annual event. My thanks to all the sponsors, speakers and delegates who made this year an unbelievable event. I am already looking forward to Glazing Summit 2020.”
