Upcoming Events  
Regional Expos Give Architects a Class on Glass  
The annual Glass Expos regional series is back in 2017 with two more  
jam-packed events—Glass Expo Northeast (GENE) and Glass Expo West  
First up is GENE, the Northeast region’s largest conference and trade  
show dedicated to the architectural glass and metal industry. It will  
take place March 30-31 at the Hilton Long Island/Huntington Hotel in  
Huntington, N.Y.  
The event offers attendees top-notch industry educational seminars, train-  
ing and networking opportunities. Exhibitors at the show, representing all  
facets of architectural glass and glazing, will showcase the industry’s newest  
trends, technologies, product offerings in glass, metal, windows, storefronts and more.  
“Glass Expo Northeast™ is a great place for architects in the region to get tuned in to the glass and  
glazing industry,” says GENE events manager Tina Czar. “Not only can they get caught up on all the  
latest product offerings and developments from exhibitors, but it also provides a great opportunity to  
network. Many of their fellow attendees, such as contract glaziers and suppliers, could be key partners  
on future projects.”  
Get into the Game

ees can register online for

quality infill panels and unmatched support that  
you need to get the job done right.
