From the fabricator: A really big show
We are now just a month away from GlassBuild America in Las Vegas, and I have been amazed at the momentum the show is gaining. Maybe it's because I am in a different position in life (and industry), but the buzz for this show is gaining. Yes, I think tight budgets probably will keep some folks away, but I am also hearing from many that are going to network, diversify, and stay ahead of the masses. I think the interesting angle here will be the actual buzz on the floor, especially regarding the way the industry and economy are headed. Shows like this and the BEC are great bellwethers for what's to come.
