GlassBuild America: Day two

Day two of GlassBuild came through with bigger crowds and more enthusiasm. I felt day two was going to be the make or break of the show, and personally, the crowds being stronger puts this show in the "make" category. Now obviously, this is not a show to compare with the good ole days of 2005, but for the timing and place we are in the economy, it really was a positive showing.

Now on to what was seen and heard...

  • Always a great thrill to see Raj Goyal, now doing consulting for Technoform. A major class act and a credit to our industry for sure. And Technoform's booth for the second day in a row was jumping... Those guys are probably thrilled with the show so far.
  • Heard from many people that the GEF (Glazing Executives Forum) was super. Major kudos to Matt Rumbaugh and his team for the success.
  • I attended the GlassBuild reception for the very first time. This is my fifteenth show, and I never made it to a reception until now... It was jam packed and great food on hand. Man, I blew it missing the past 14.
  • Cool as a cucumber Jay Phillips of Guardian was everywhere on the floor. Guardian may not have had a booth, but Jay covered the real estate on the floor like he was riding one of those Segway motor scooters. He was everywhere.
  • Very thrilled to meet in person Newton Little of Ace Glass in Arkansas. Good man who donates a ton of time for the betterment of our industry.
  • Best business cards... Tom O'Malley of Doralco... just the coolest layout and very eye catching... I think I may have to ask him if I can borrow his design. These cards were the same width as a normal card but slightly shorter height; the key was the font, and design of the card was dynamic.
