Day three at GlassBuild America

Day three at the show: I'll be short here because I am whipped and will have the big recap in next week's e-glass weekly.

As expected, traffic on the show floor was lighter on day three, but the machinery side was jumping. If there's a storyline here, it's that the machinery booths seemed to have solid traffic throughout.

A fun video about the show featuring a certain well-dressed Canadian showing off his dance moves is here.

 Also, I did see Greg "Fabio" Carney and he was not pleased with me. Love the hair no matter what.

With the shorter day, I missed a few folks like the fine people at Technoform. I was there for a heartbeat on Monday and just never made it back. It was great seeing the always awesome Milind Jhaveri, even it was only for a second. Also missed hooking up with Chad Simkins of Soladigm. I saw him a few times for a few seconds each, but never could connect. He's a busy dude growing that product line.

I did get around to several booths though and saw some great things: the equipment at Erdman was awesome, as was the machinery at GED. Loved seeing the new technology at 3M and some wild stuff at Zircon. This show really brought out the best in the exhibitor.

The full recap is coming over the weekend.
