The world has been in crisis for over one year now, the times they are a changing and The Glass Supper has had to change and adapt also. Late last year on 3rd December we held our first digital event called The Glass Supper….Virtually Speaking 2020.

The big advantage with hosting a digital event as opposed to a physical face to face event is technology, here digital wins hands down. One can get as close to your client as is humanly possible, but you cannot touch them or smell them. IGS would like to say a massive thank you to our very long-standing Event Partners, DOW, SAINT-GOBAIN and PERMASTEELISA, and also to our sponsors, AGC Interpane, Sika, EOC Engineers and all the companies that took part in our adventure to the moon.
During the Glass Supper this year we introduced a “Spot the Celebrity” Competition Sponsored Glas Trösch, with a number of celebrities posted in and around the venue, including Mother Theresa, Mohammed Ali, Gandhi, Marilyn Monroe and guests were invited to try to spot all of the celebrity avatars. A number of you took part in the competition, we hope you had a bit of fun, but the outright winner as chosen randomly by Mr.Paul Anderson of Glass Trosch was Eva Babel of ARUP. Eva has won adverts for the year in IGS magazine for ARUP, plus an all singing and dancing apple i-Pad. Coming in a very close second place is Eckersley O’Callaghan’s Katherine Smale who wins an apple i-Pad, and in a very respected third place was Beatriz Fernandez of Seele. Congratulations to all the winners and to everyone who took part in our little bit of festive fun, we hope you enjoyed it.
As things have not yet settled down and covid remains lurking in the atmosphere, there will be no Glass Supper once again this year, but let’s keep our fingers crossed that we can all get together in all of our favourite getting together places and hug and talk without masks or any form of social distancing in 2022. For now, let’s do a little reminiscing and take a look back at some of the more recent Glass Supper events from 2018 when we were at the Roundhouse, then 2019 inside London’s Guildhall with its glitteringly fascinating history. We end with some views of last year’s digital event.
