GGF Pleased with Successful Events
Following a successful few weeks of events and exhibitions, the Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) is now looking forward to Counter Terror Expo at London Olympia, 29-30 April. Here’s a review of the GGF’s recent events and a brief preview of the GGF’s plans for Counter Terror Expo 2014.
fensterbau frontale – March 2014
Being an integral part of the UK Pavilion and working in collaboration for the first time with the fensterbau frontale organisers, the GGF had a very good show with over 100 visitors of note coming on the GGF stand including, GGF Member companies, members of the international and UK media and potential new GGF Members.
James Lee, GGF Head of Group Marketing and Communications commented, “The fensterbau frontale show was very positive for many reasons. Our position and stand space provided strong brand profile at arguably the industry’s largest international show. We were also pleased to welcome Members to our stand and act as a base for many Members visiting the show. In addition, we made some great media and industry contacts. Our Membership team is now actively following up with several companies we met at the show with a view to them becoming new GGF Members.”
Triple Glazing Question – 10 April 2014
GGF Member Edgetech’s new initiative proved a great success at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena with over 500 guests covering a wide spectrum of considerations from technical to commercial through to political and environmental. As well as promoting the event, the GGF was delighted to present and contribute to the panel of speakers during the open forum.
Nigel Rees, GGF Group Chief Executive commented, “It was a pleasure to speak at this important debate and explain how triple glazing fits with the current European and British Standards. It was also important to show the audience how the standards process works and how the GGF is involved at the highest level with Governments in the UK and Europe. I’d like to thank Edgetech and Andy Jones for organising a very productive and worthwhile event.”
