Glazing Summit goes from strength to strength with new organisers

The Glazing Summit returns for 2024, in its usual location at Edgbaston Cricket Ground, Birmingham, on the 17 October.

Now into its sixth year, the event has cemented itself a must-attend for senior leaders within the UK fenestration industry, featuring a day of high-level industry debate and providing unrivalled networking opportunities for over 400 delegates.

Once again proudly headline sponsored by Yale Door and Window Solutions, the 2024 edition of the Glazing Summit is the first to be organised by MA Business, publishers of Glass & Glazing Products magazine (GGP) and a host of other built-environment titles. As part of the Mark Allen Group, which organises hundreds of global events across a wide variety of industries, the expertise of the MA Business team will help ensure the Glazing Summit remains as relevant and topical as ever.

A full conference programme will be announced in weeks to come, but panel discussions, keynote speakers and roundtable debates will cover topics including sustainable construction, the skills crisis, legislative changes and supply chain challenges. The Glazing Summit remains the only event that can offer such a broad spectrum of opinion and debate.

“We are so excited to be the new custodians of the Glazing Summit,” said Chris Beck, GGP editor. “The work done by Andrew Scott and the Purplex team to develop the Summit into the world-class event it is today means it is the first date in the diary for some of the key names in this sector. They know it’s the best place to learn more about the key topics that will be affecting their business – and the wider industry – in the years to come.

“We are working on the full conference programme as we speak, but can guarantee an even better and more targeted speaker lineup than ever before. Make sure you keep your eyes peeled for more details in due course. I personally look forward to welcoming the industry to another successful Glazing Summit.”
