Salon Glass Focus Awards 2019

The prestigious annual Glass Focus will take place on Thursday 21 November 2019 in Sheffield.

Join us this year for a full daytime programme of speakers, networking and discussions, followed by the evening gala awards dinner – all hosted at the Mercure St Paul’s Hotel, in the heart of the city.

Everyone with a stake in glass is invited. Each year it’s a unique opportunity to celebrate and network with decision makers including:

  • glass manufacturers
  • machinery and material suppliers
  • recyclers
  • brands and buyers
  • policy makers
  • researchers

Confirmed speakers include;

Andy Williams – Manufacturing Lead at the CBI covering issues and changes in UK manufacturing.

Professor Alicia Durán – President of the International Commission on Glass speaking about Women in the glass industry.


Each year British Glass recognises, celebrates and promotes best practice in glass and its supply chain industries. The entries and the awards ceremony reveal the outstanding achievements of the preceding year – and are an excellent opportunity to showcase your organisation.
