Appetite for live events

A high demand for tickets to this year’s Glazing Summit is a strong indication of the glazing industry’s desire to “get back out there and meet people face to face”, its organisers said.

The Glazing Summit is set to take place on Thursday, October 21 at Edgbaston Stadium and Conference Centre.

“60,000 people at Wembley for the Euros, and Reading Festival selling out has shown that sport and music fans have been desperate to get back to live events – and the glazing industry is no different,” Andrew Scott, the event’s founder, said.

“In the last few weeks, we have had a rush on ticket sales for this year’s Glazing Summit and they were selling out fast as we approached ‘Freedom Day’ on July 19.

“It’s clear that industry leaders and business owners just want to get back out there after almost 18 months of sitting on Zoom and the telephone and interact with their peers.

“The fenestration industry has been built on networking and there will be plenty of opportunities to do that throughout the day at the Glazing Summit.”

Andrew said the Glazing Summit provides a vital space to discuss the challenges the industry is facing and help shape its future.

“These conversations need to be had,” he said.
