Day one at GlassBuild America

Day one on the show floor was surely a fun one for me. I hadn't been to GlassBuild for two years, so it was great to be back amidst the action. Overall, I thought the day was solid; the crowd came in waves and I saw some booths swamped with people. That said, I know some folks might have commented that it was slow or light, but I think for a first day when all was said and done, it was better than you think.

Seen and heard and experienced on the show floor.... Larry King or Page 6 style:

  • Before hitting the floor, I ran into Rick Friel of Cardinal. He was looking great, proving West Coast living must agree with him.
  • Best look of the day: the gang from PPG looking nattily clad in their very cool vests. Yes, the great Rob Struble strikes again with that idea. I need to beg him for one of those! 
  • Loved the GGI wide-open booth. Went over to say hi to my brother, but he was always entertaining someone.
  • No Starship Enterprise booth this year as no Oldcastle showing. Dang.

It's perfect that people are able to receive the loans and that opens up new possibilities.

Such a nice post! In glass industries there are lots of competitors so the business owners need to have new strategy to get more consumers. Some glass companies going down but some are more successful!-beaute pacifique
