GlassBuild America – Action Packed on Day 2

September 14, 2011

Tuesday, Day 2

“We had a busy summer, we’re busy now and it looks like a busy fall,” said John Dwyer, president of Syracuse Glass who was one of more than 6,000 attendees visiting GlassBuild America on Day 2. And while a busy fall forecast may not be shared by all glass companies across the country, there was a sense of determined action on the part of attendees and exhibitors alike.

Tough times require “out of the box thinking” is how another industry veteran put it, and more than one exhibitor was showing how. “We’re here to solve people’s problems,” said Doug Canfield, president of Casso-Solar Technologies LLC as he explained how his engineers help solve the quick turnaround and added-value demands of today’s marketplace.

Upstairs, Window & Door Dealers Forum attendees learned valuable tips to help improve their businesses from both speakers  and each other at the session’s roundtable discussions.

The first-ever Architects Forum featured the hottest architect— Edward Mazria, energy expert, educator, author and Architecture 2030 founder; who delivered an eye-opening presentation illustrating the powerful role of the Building Sector in both creating and alleviating many of the crises facing America and the world today. It was a huge success.
