Midwest Leads
Glass Expo Midwest™ Brings Educational Program and Expo to Indianapolis


Hundreds of people from around the Midwest and as far away as Oklahoma, California and Massachusetts took part in the two-day Glass Expo Midwest™ (GEMS), April 7-8, at the Indianapolis Marriott East in Indianapolis. The annual regional education event included a trade show, seminars, workshops and networking opportunities.

Many exhibiting companies participated in the show, and featured an assortment of products, from new security, decorative and other glass technologies, to tools, equipment and much more. Glass Expo Midwest was well-received by attendees and exhibitors alike.

“The quality of people that came through was really good,” commented Gregory Thompson, owner of decorative glass fabricator GRT Glass Design in Indianapolis, and an exhibitor at the expo. Thompson added, “Everybody has an agenda when they come to a glass show; we accomplished that on our end and we’ve got some great leads.”

Glass Expo Midwest drew strong accolades for its educational program as well. Sessions focused on the proper application of mirrors, dynamic and solar glazing and a panel discussion on what architects want, among other topics.
