We feel blessed by all the wonderful words of thanks and praise for the recent Glass Supper, it’s a humbling experience yet extremely pleasing to know that a good time was had by all. Massive thanks has to go to our long-standing EVENT PARTNERS in alphabetical order, DOW, Permasteelisa & Saint-Gobain who this time around were joined on the top platform by Reynaers. This event could never be the same without your unyielding friendship, strength and loyalty – Thank You!
Thanks also for the equally strong support from our once again long-standing Sponsors, Champagne Reception Sponsors (from the outset) SIKA, Lanyard Sponsors (from the outset) AGC Interpane, Gala Dinner Seat Cover Sponsors (from the outset) Glas Trösch. Eckersley O’Callaghan have been the Glass Supper name badge sponsor since 2013.
The above companies have been name-dropped because together their collective strength and guidance, over a number of years, has rigidly cemented The Glass Supper as the “Event of the Year” for leaders, genuine bosses and real decision-makers within the architectural glass and facade industry who come second to no-one. So once again, we salute you!
We have literally HUNDREDS of photos from our recent event in the Skygarden available to download via the link at the end of this article. As you know we don’t like to shout too loudly about the Supper, it’s far better to let success make the noise. Anyway, together we march onward and upward, there is fabulous news coming to you next week as promised…haha.
The Amazing Glass Supper – Same same, but better!
