"The response to Top Glass has exceeded our wildest expectations," says Danielle Labrie, Top Glass show manager. "It is clear that there was pent-up demand for an event of this kind in the industry."

Advertisment

Attendees will be able to earn Continuing Education credits at three free technical seminars hosted by top experts. And everyone in the commercial glazing industry will benefit from the keynote address from Katherine Jacobs, research and operation director for the Ontario Construction Secretariat. Jacobs has invaluable information on the intentions of developers and commercial contractors in Toronto's booming construction sector – information no glass business owner can afford to be without.

Between educations sessions, attendees can browse the latest technology on a sold-out show floor featuring over 30 of Canada's top suppliers to the trade. Gold Sponsor Tremco and Silver Sponsors Alumicor and Dow Corning have stepped up their support to make sure Top Glass is a great opportunity for everyone.

"I can't overstate the importance of our sponsors' support," adds Labrie. "Getting behind events like Top Glass that help everyone in the industry is the mark of true leadership."

Glass industry associations have thrown their support behind Top Glass, as well. Attendees will be able to meet executives from the Ontario Glass and Metal Association, the Canadian Glass Association and the Insulating Glass Manufacturers Association and learn more about the crucial work these groups are doing.

And the fun and networking does not end with Top Glass. The next day, at nearby Pipers Heath Golf Club in Milton, Ont., everyone is invited to join the OGMA on the links for a day of relaxation and industry recognition. The OGMA has very generously extended its member rates for the tournament to Top Glass attendees, a savings of $50 on a day of golf with lunch, dinner and prizes. But hurry! Registration for OGMA golf ends today, May 23.

If you have not registered for Top Glass and find yourself with time to come by on the day, never fear. Walk-up registrations will be accepted all day and admission is free. See you at Top Glass!
