Imagine being able to do this again. We might still need masks at Top Glass 2022, but at least we’ll be able to see each other in three dimensions.

Top Glass, Canada’s conference and trade exposition for the architectural glass industry, will take place at the International Centre in Mississauga, Ont., on April 20. It marks the first time the show has been hosted as a live event since the 2019 edition, having moved online in 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID pandemic. REGISTER HERE

Here’s what you need to know about the 2022 show.

Who will be there?
Top Glass is for anyone involved in the commercial architectural glazing business in Canada. Attendees include glazing contractors, glass fabricators, architects, specifiers, building engineers and suppliers to all those sectors.

What is the event?
Top Glass is a one-day event, running from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., featuring a full schedule of educational speakers with a concurrent exhibit hall with booths staffed by top industry suppliers. Check out our preview showcase following this article for a sneak peek at some of the products and companies that will be on display.


Where is the show?
The International Centre is at 6900 Airport Road in Mississauga, Ont., just minutes away from Pearson airport and the 401, 407 and 427 highways. Those wishing to avoid traffic can take the UP train from Union station in downtown Toronto then a very short cab ride from the airport to the conference centre. There is ample parking and it is free. Any Toronto airport hotel will be only a short ride away. The Sandman Signature is where the show organizers stay.

How is it supported?
Top Glass is free to attend, thanks to the support of our show floor exhibitors and our marquee sponsors. The 2022 edition thanks the following for their generous sponsorship:

Top Glass also gets great support from its association partners. Thanks to these organizations for their promotion and assistance:

Why attend?
Top Glass is our annual chance to come together as an industry to learn, renew acquaintances and make new connections – with a Canadian spin and a laser focus on the glass business. Top Glass presentations are accepted as learning credit hours by most Canadian professional organizations. Attendees filling out the post-event survey receive confirmation certificates with the information needed to claim their credits.

What about COVID?
Top Glass will of course follow all the province of Ontario’s and the International Centre’s health rules for public gatherings. As these regulations shift frequently, it is difficult to predict at this time what will be in place on the day.
