Yale to headline Glazing Summit 2022

Paul Atkinson, Yale's managing director

Yale has been announced as the headline sponsor for this year’s Glazing Summit. The event is due to take place on Tuesday 18 October at Edgbaston Stadium, Birmingham. Other sponsors include Shelforce.

The Glazing Summit is set to feature expert and keynote speakers discussing the biggest issues facing the industry, with the day rounded off with the Glazing Summit Dinner in the evening. Paul Atkinson, managing director of Yale, explained why the company has sponsored the event from its inception and is headline sponsor for the second year in a row.

Paul said: “Last year’s Glazing Summit offered professional value. Having supported it since its inception in 2018, you can really see how it is evolving and developing into a key industry event in the annual calendar.

“What makes it so relevant is that it’s the only industry event where it’s not just about selling products.- It’s about the industry getting together to professionalise, promote and share best practice and understand the challenges are that we are all facing at all levels of the industry supply chain.

“It’s also a great place to network. It’s different to a trade show in that the Glazing Summit has mainly prominent characters and influential people from the industry, so it’s definitely a worthwhile event to attend.

”We feel it’s a good event to represent your organisation. We’re delighted to be headline sponsors for the event and we are looking forward to October.”

Andrew Scott, founder of the Glazing Summit, said: “Momentum is already growing despite it being early in the year. It’s brilliant to have a world-leading company like Yale headline sponsoring Glazing Summit 2022. It really shows the calibre of the event.”
