The Canadian Glass Association’s Glass Connections conference hit a home run when it returned to Burnaby, BC in June offering high caliber educational and networking opportunities with local, national and US glazing leaders.

June 7, 2017 - Top Glass is Canada’s industry event for the commercial glazing industry. Hosted by Glass Canada magazine, Top Glass brings glazing contractors, curtain wall manufacturers, storefront fabricators, architects and building engineers together for a day of education, networking and review of the latest technology.
If the National Glass Association’s GlassBuild America could be described as the best buffet in Vegas, a smorgasbord of delights for every glass nerd in the industry, the Glass Association of North America’s Building Enclosure Contractors (BEC) Conference is more like the Foundation Room on the 63rd floor of Mandalay Bay: an intimate, information-intensive experience for 403 of the biggest names in the business.
The reviews are in for last week’s Top Glass conference and the response is very positive. Over 80 per cent of respondents to the post-show survey rated the seminars and award presentation good or excellent. On the show floor, 93 per cent gave top marks.
May 26, 2017 - With luck comparable to that of the 2017 Blue Jays, the Ontario Glass and Metal Association's scheduled day for its spring golf tournament landed on a day of continuous driving rain, forcing the first cancellation of the golf round in living memory. Instead, staff at Piper's Heath Golf Club in Milton, Ont., moved with impressive flexibility to start the steak dinner early at 2 p.m. and give the approximately 50 members in attendance an enjoyable afternoon of discussion and laughter. Attendees received a rain check.
