0 comment 3 minutes read

The Glass & Glazing Federation (GGF), FIT Show, and FENSA have joined forces to introduce Glass Conference, an annual event set to become a cornerstone in the glazing industry’s calendar.

Scheduled to take place at the Telford International Centre on the 16th and 17th of October, 2024, this two-day gathering aims to unite professionals from all facets of the glass and glazing sector, offering unparalleled opportunities for networking and knowledge exchange.

The inception of Glass Conference stems from a recognized need within the market for a centralized platform that addresses the industry’s educational and networking requirements, while also keeping stakeholders informed about crucial legislative and regulatory developments. Feedback from FIT Show’s 2023 post-event survey highlighted a clear demand for an additional industry touchpoint, prompting the collaborative efforts of GGF, FIT Show, and FENSA to fill this gap.

As the leading trade federation in the sector, GGF boasts a community of members that account for over 60% of the fenestration sector’s annual turnover of £4 billion. John Agnew, GGF Group Managing Director, expressed his enthusiasm for the launch of Glass Conference, emphasizing its role in bringing together industry players to share best practices, enhance skills, and drive positive change within the fenestration landscape.

The event’s agenda includes keynote presentations by industry experts, networking sessions, and opportunities for direct engagement with various supply chain stakeholders. Delegates can look forward to a gala dinner at the end of the first day, providing a relaxed setting for further networking and entertainment.

Sponsors of Glass Conference will benefit from prominent brand exposure through stand space and branding opportunities, while attendees can access expert guidance, practical advice, and live product demonstrations throughout the event. With FIT Show’s decade-long track record as the UK’s sole trade show for the sector, Event Director Nickie West underscores the significance of establishing annual touchpoints for industry professionals.

Lis Clarke, Operations Director of FENSA, shared her excitement about the collaboration with GGF and FIT Show for the inaugural Glass Conference. FENSA’s commitment to enhancing window and door replacements across England and Wales aligns seamlessly with the event’s mission to raise industry standards and foster collaboration among stakeholders.

With over 6,000 Approved Installers under its purview, FENSA plays a pivotal role in shaping industry practices and promoting professionalism among installers. The platform provided by Glass Conference offers a unique opportunity for FENSA’s community to engage with industry leaders, share insights, and collectively drive progress within the sector.

In conclusion, Glass Conference emerges as a vital forum for industry professionals to connect, learn, and collaborate towards a brighter future for the glazing industry. By leveraging the expertise and resources of GGF, FIT Show, and FENSA, this event promises to empower attendees with actionable insights that can drive transformative change in their businesses and operations.
