Northeast Stays Strong Glass Expo Northeast™
Closes Strong on Long Island

Glass Expo Northeast wrapped up on March 18 at the Hyatt Regency Long Island at the Wind Watch Hotel & Golf Club in Hauppauge, N. Y. Hundreds of people from around the region took part in the two-day event, which included a trade show, seminars, workshops and networking opportunities.

More than 50 exhibitors participated in the show, and featured an assortment of products, from new glass technologies to tools, equipment and much more. The event drew an even larger and stronger crowd than the 2009 showing and was well received by attendees and exhibitors alike.

“We got a lot of positive feedback from the first show [in 2009] and wanted to do it again and get our name out there again and see what’s out there in the industry,” commented Vanessa Violante with second-time exhibitor Twin Pane Insulated Glass Co. Violante added, “It’s always good to stay current.”

“This year I brought down three other people from my office to experience everything they had to offer here,” said attendee Brian Albanese of Forno Enterprises. “It’s been great.”

Plans are already in the works for the next Glass Expo Northeast, currently slated for 2013.
