Not all doom and gloom

More than half of those attending the Glazing Summit in September thought the state of the market in 2019 is no worse than 2018, with 24% of visitors saying it was better.

Glazing Summit organisers used Slido, the online Q&A and polling app, which allowed attendees to take part in several polls and pose questions for those on stage through their smartphones.

“It was really interesting to see that only 25% of people said that in their opinion the state of the market in 2019 is down on last year, considering Brexit has provided a lot of uncertainty,” Andrew Scott, Glazing Summit founder and CEO of Purplex and Insight Data, said.

“Brexit has painted a picture of negativity over the whole country, whatever the industry, so it’s great to see that our industry has shown a lot of positivity.”
