If you’ve attended the Building Envelope Contractors (BEC) Conference in the past, there may be just one question on your mind: will there be a top 10 countdown this year?

Because if you’ve been to the event, sponsored by the Glass Association of North America (GANA), in the past, you already know that the educational offerings will be top-notch and the topics covered will be timely. (And you likely know that new BEC chairperson Henry Taylor of Kawneer Co. is more than up to the task of moderating an event that last year kept attendees riveted to the edges of stadium-style seats.)

If you’re a first time attendee, you should know that this event geared toward glazing contractors is so informative that even after the annual “beer break” sponsored by W&W Glass the seats remain full.

This year GANA is preparing to kick-off another BEC Conference, March 27-29, at the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas. The event comes at the close of GANA’s Glass Week and the Insulating Glass Manufacturer’s Alliance Annual Meeting (see January 2010 USGlass, page 46, for related story).

Event organizers have broken the schedule into three topics: the industry; products; and contract glazing. Take a look for yourself, and then visit www.glassweek.com for more information or to register to attend.
