The Glazing Summit, organised by Purplex Marketing and Insight Data, is the biggest conference for the glazing sector and brings together leaders from across the industry including component suppliers, fabricators and installers to discuss latest trends, technologies and sustainability along with the challenges facing the sector.
Overheating caused by high levels of glass has become a hot topic, particularly with lockdown meaning we have all been in our homes longer and working from home whether full or part time being the new norm. And with longer, warmer Summers, a result of global warming, the topic of overheating continues to become ever more relevant. Furthermore homeowners (and businesses) are conscious of not just the cost of running fans and air conditioning devices to cool their overheated spaces but the negative impact they have on the environment in terms of their CO2 emissions along with being detrimental to health not to mention noisy and cumbersome.
External shading has provided the solution (prevention) to combatting overheating through glass for years, however, there has been minimal collaboration between the two sectors. This in person event therefore provides the perfect opportunity for the marriage between shading and glazing to be discussed through networking and we’re pleased to be a sponsor of this exclusive event and taking a leading role in educating and informing.
Taking place on the 21st October at the Edgbaston Stadium in Birmingham the event is expected to see over 400 industry leaders gather. If you are involved in the glazing or shading sectors, this event is a must attend. Tickets can be purchased here.
