Blooming Marvellous Bloomberg Speaker

A panel debate at the last Glazing Summit.

One of the UK’s leading financial analysts and investment strategists will give an exclusive key-note at the 2021 Glazing Summit, sharing his economic and business outlook for the glazing, building products and housing market.

Greg Perdon is a Chief Investment Officer with Arbuthnot Latham, the exclusive London private bank and wealth management firm.

He is a sought-after writer and speaker on economic and investment strategy, regularly featured on TV and radio and in the financial press and a host on Bloomberg.

Perdon was named one of the Top 100 most influential wealth managers in the UK by Citywire and was previously an Investment Manager with Merrill Lynch, part of Bank of America.

Andrew Scott, founder of the Glazing Summit says: “Greg is an incredible speaker who captivates his audience, explaining complex issues and economic data in a way that everyone can really understand. His knowledge of economic activity on the surface and what is really bubbling underneath, is not to be missed by anyone who owns or runs a business in the glass and glazing industry, whether it’s a small manufacturing firm or a large public company. Armed with this essential information, business owners and leaders will be able to make better-informed decisions about their future.”

The Glazing Summit takes place on 21 October 2021 at Edgbaston Stadium and Conference Centre, Birmingham. It brings together forward-thinking fabricators, installers and component suppliers to discuss the biggest issues and share ideas and solutions.


Anticipation Builds For Glazing Summit

As restrictions ease and the UK returns to live events, anticipation is building for the Glazing Summit.

Andrew Scott adds: “Our industry is facing some of its toughest challenges ever, from supply-chain issues and labour shortages to spiralling costs and looming legislation. People are exhausted with it. Industry leaders need to come together and find solutions.”

Delegate safety will be a top priority. The organisers have taken additional precautions despite restrictions being lifted.

Scott continues: “The event will be carefully managed with restricted numbers, dedicated seating and a much bigger conference space.”

Jade Greenhow, Operations Director of Insight Data - one of the event organisers - says: “We already have some world-class speakers lined up, ready to discuss issues facing not only our own industry but the wider building industry and the UK economic outlook. The feedback so far has been incredible and it’s also shaping up to be a fantastic event to connect peers, customers and suppliers.”
