Edgetech  is the latest big-name sponsor to sign up to the Glazing Summit, a major new conference for the leading lights of UK fenestration.


The Event at the St John’s Exhibition Centre in Solihull on May 22nd, will bring together senior figures from the industry to discuss new product developments, emerging opportunities, and the future of the sector in the wake of Brexit.


Coventry-based Edgetech is known for its pioneering role in the development of warm-edge technology. However, it’s also widely respected for its willingness to tackle the biggest issues affecting glass and glazing, and as one of the driving forces behind the popularisation of window energy ratings.


Given its keen interest in the future of the industry, it was inevitable the firm would play a key role in the Glazing Summit. Managing director Chris Alderson says: “Edgetech has always been involved in the big debates shaping UK glass and glazing. We strongly believe that we have a responsibility to help drive the industry forward as a whole.


In the past, we’ve done that with our Energy Efficiency in Focus conferences, a crucial milestone on the road to the market adopting window energy ratings beginning back in 2006, and our Triple Glazing Question event in 2014.


Now, we’re thrilled to be supporting what looks set to be another landmark moment timely discussion on the development in glass and glazing, and to be able to take part in conversations that could shape the industry for years to come.”


The Summit will take place at St Johns Hotel and Conference Centre, Solihull, five minutes from the M42 motorway, from 9am to 3pm on Tuesday 22nd May 2018.
