Top Glass 2019 delivers energy and substance
By Patrick Flannery
Top Glass 2019 surpassed all previous attendance records with over 300 glazing contractors, architectural glass fabricators, architects and other construction design professionals walking through the doors. They came to see 62 of Canada’s top suppliers of products for the commerical glass construction industry and to take in a sparkling education program addressing green building standards, bent IGU seal testing, contractor certification and anisotropy measurement science.
But the numbers were not the real story. Most notable at Top Glass 2019 was the high quality of the attendees, with three out of four identifying as senior executives or owners of their organizations. Exhibitors reported solid business leads and even some deals being done right on the show floor. Energy was high and the strong traffic carried right through the day. Sessions were well-attended with a mix of architects, contractors and manufacturers asking many questions and even getting into some lively exchanges.
Some attendees and exhibitors even took to Twitter to express their satisfaction with the day.
