GGF signs up for Trading Standards Conference

The GGF for the third consecutive year has committed to supporting the Trading Standards Institute (TSI) Annual Conference and Exhibition, which this year will take place on 29th June to 2nd July at Bournemouth International Centre.

This event is one of the highlights in the TSI calendar with over 1000 Trading Standard Officers attending and over 50 exhibitors including Which, BBC and British Retail Consortium.

Brian Smith, GGF Director of Home Improvement commented,

“It is important for the GGF to have a presence at the TSI Conference and Exhibition, not just to raise our profile with Trading Standards Officers but also to highlight and explain our work in helping our Members, the industry and homeowners.”

The 2014 Conference at Harrogate was a sell-out as were the mini-theatres where companies have the opportunity to present to delegates. Last year, the GGF presented on the consumer issues affecting our industry in particular the Consumer Right Directive and the incoming Consumer Right Bill. For 2015, the GGF has booked a mini-theatre slot for Thursday 2nd July at 10.15am. The presentation this year, “Shattering the Double Glazing Myth”, will focus on how the glazing industry has cleaned up its reputation since the 1980s with better products, technological advances, more professional workmanship and through trade organisations such as the GGF is more regulated than ever before.

James Lee, Head of Group Marketing and Communications added,

“Exhibiting and presenting at this event will further strengthen our relationship with Trading Standards Institute. In addition to increasing awareness of the GGF to Trading Standards Officers, we will also be raising the GGF’s profile to many other consumer facing organisations that will be both attending and exhibiting.”
