Next big thing

More than 75% of attendees at this year’s Glazing Summit said smart doors and windows will be the next big thing.

A poll conducted at this year’s one-day conference at Edgbaston Stadium and Conference Centre posed the question ‘is smart windows and doors all hype, or is it the next big thing?’ and only 24% thought it was all hype.

Event organisers, Purplex Marketing and Insight Data, used Slido, the online Q&A and polling app, to conduct several polls throughout the day which attendees were able to take through a smartphone app.

“Smart tech is very much here to stay and it’s clear that those in attendance at this year’s Glazing Summit agree,” Andrew Scott, Glazing Summit founder and CEO of Purplex and Insight Data said.

“Our panel of experts provided a really good discussion on smart tech – how it will evolve to become much more than just a gadget and how it will ultimately be driven by what the consumer demands. There are interesting times ahead.”
