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.
