Glazing Summit under new ownership

Mark Allen Group, which owns Glass & Glazing Products magazine and the Installer Awards, has acquired the Glazing Summit conference.

Andrew Scott, founder of the Glazing Summit and CEO of the Summit’s current organisers, Insight Data and Purplex Marketing, will remain closely linked to the event.

Andrew Scott commented: “I created the Glazing Summit to enable the industry to connect, learn and share valuable insights and experience. We held the first event in 2018 and it’s gone from strength to strength with a first-class conference and gala dinner. This year we had almost 500 industry professionals attend the event tackling the biggest issues facing our sector.”

Over the last 37 years Andrew has acquired, built and sold several businesses within the glazing sector and launched marketing specialist Purplex in 2004 to advise companies on business and marketing strategy.

In 2007 he launched Insight Data to provide the construction and fenestration sectors with in-depth market intelligence, with detailed information on all 14,000 companies that operates in the glazing sector.

“Mark Allen Group is a major media business that specialises in events such as the Glazing Summit and are ideally placed to take the event forward. Insight Data and Purplex will continue to support the Summit as it goes from strength to strength, while I look forward to spending more time working closely with clients as the industry faces some challenges ahead.”

Ben Allen, Chief Executive Officer, Mark Allen Group said: “Andrew and his team have done an outstanding job in developing the event and we are delighted that Insight Data and Purplex Marketing will continue to support the event under our ownership.”
