Head to Texas for Two Conferences in One Trip


When you think about San Antonio, you can’t help but to “Remember the Alamo.” This year you can also remember the Glass Association of North America’s (GANA) Fall Conference and Glass Leaders Conference, which will take place at the Hyatt Regency San Antonio. The back-to-back events begin October 12 with the Glass Leaders Conference, followed by the Fall Conference October 13-16. Both will offer leadership, learning, networking and a chance to enjoy a stroll along the famous Riverwalk.

Glass Leaders Conference

Your trip begins with the Glass Leaders Conference. Built as a networking and educational event, it is designed for senior executives and managers within the glass and glazing industry to hear presentations on issues and trends specifically focused on managing a business. Presentations will cover topics such as transportation, supply chain management, safety, economic forecast and advocacy. It is geared for those looking to advance their companies and become well-informed on issues that industry businesses face every day.

Fall Conference

The GANA Fall Conference will be filled with working technical meetings, educational sessions and networking. There are also two new features this year. The first is a fire and impact testing tour of the Intertek facility, hosted by the GANA Protective Glazing Council. This will be open to a limited number of Fall Conference attendees, as local architects and general contractors are being invited to take part in the three-hour tour and demonstration. Be sure and register for that tour early as spots are filling up quickly.

In addition, there is a networking lounge each day of the conference. This is designed for those participants who have open time during technical sessions that do not pertain to the specific nature of their work. Participants can join peers in the networking lounge to discuss current glass issues, upcoming conference sessions or just grab a cup of coffee while catching up on email.
