In light of the current coronavirus pandemic, and consistent with its focus on the health and safety of its employees and preferred partners, Guardian Glass decided not to participate at glasstec 2020, scheduled to take place in Dusseldorf, Germany, Oct. 22-23, 2020. The company will instead prioritize a swift and successful resumption of business, as well as the acceleration of its own digital transformation, say company officials.
“Our decision not to participate at this year’s event was not taken lightly, but was done with the health and safety of our employees and customers in mind, being respectful of the current business environment,” says Kevin Baird, president and CEO of Guardian Glass. “These are challenging times for everyone, and it has required all of us to think differently about how we do business. We want to build on this momentum of necessary innovation and develop new ways of supporting our customers and other preferred partners through enhanced digital tools and collaboration.”
Recent digital initiatives by Guardian Glass include online architectural glass workshops currently running across Europe, with similar digital events slated for the U.S. and other regions in the coming weeks. The company will continue to build out its digital content and product portfolio to inspire new thinking in the use of glass in commercial architecture, as well as helping to deliver more comfortable and energy-efficient living environments.
