We held our 2016 conference and awards dinner at Dynamic Earth – an iconic structure on the grounds of an old brewery bottling plant in the Holyrood area of the city. 

Dynamic Earth is a five-star visitor attraction that was a catalyst for the economic regeneration of the Holyrood area. It tells the story of our planet: how it works, how life has evolved in different environments and the future challenges faced by the Earth.
 

It was a perfect backdrop for Glass Focus 2016 – which shaped and stimulated a vision for the future of glass – the material and industry. 

You can see who won a Glass Focus 2016 award here.

The programme brought together speakers and delegates in straightforward conversations to create insight and real-world application.

Industry and technical experts shared experience and lead exchanges on topics including:

  • anticipating tomorrow’s demands from designers, manufacturers and customers

  • decoupling growth, energy use and emissions

  • working across supply and value chains to adapt successfully.


The delagtes included manufacturers; machinery and service suppliers; designers, architects, brands and buyers; policy makers and researchers.
