Assa Abloy also had a presence  
at the show. The company featured  
its access control products, and was  
looking at how the evolving definition  
of green relates to new workplaces—  
many of which are being designed to  
incorporate open spaces that allow for  
increased collaboration.  
“We think glass empowers that  
category in the new workplace,” said  
Daniel O’Connell, managing director  
with Brand-definition, which works  
with Assa Abloy, explaining that as new  
buildings are designed, daylight often  
comes into consideration. “We’re try-  
ing to help architects deploy glass in a  
way that allows them to have this new  
workplace [concept].”

number of exhibitors pointed out, at-  
tendees were specifically looking for  
the greenest, most sustainable prod-  
ucts. And companies at this year’s  
event offered a variety of options to  
meet those demands. The expo took  
place October 5-6 at the Los Angeles  
Convention Center.

the glazing industry as it raises the

Get Ready for Glass Expo West ’17  
Our presence as exhibitors is very  
important to educate the trade and  
the architectural community on the  
risks associated with bird collisions  
to exterior glazing structures and on  
appropriate solutions combining day-  
lighting, occupants view to the exterior  
and visual markers,” he said.  
Glass Expo West™ ’17 will return in 2017, taking place June 1-2, 2017.  
The event will provide two full days of educational seminars, quality program-  
ming and a show floor full of industry suppliers. The Southern California city  
of Irvine will once again host Glass Expo West near the major hubs of Los  
Angeles and Anaheim.  
Co-sponsored by USGlass, DWM and WindoW Film magazines, Glass Expo  
West ’17 will provide the architectural glass and metal industry one convenient  
location to meet, network and stay on top of current trends and developments.  
The Irvine Marriott will be the event venue, providing attendees and exhib-  
itors a discounted room rate of $159/night plus tax for a single or double.  
Additional information is also available through the event website.

Andrew Haring, vice president of  
marketing for CRL, added, “Greenbuild  
presents a great platform to facilitate  
the sustainable design dialogue, and  
any relevant manufacturer of fenestra-  
tion/façade systems needs to be a part  
of this important conversation.” n
