Auto Glass Week 2013 is a must attend for its Auto Glass Technician and Repair Competitions as well as strong keynoters, educational seminars and an exhibit hall featuring top suppliers, according to past attendees.
“If you wish to be the leader of auto glass in your market, you need to attend Auto Glass Week,” says Gerald “Dr. Chip” Zwart. “Be informed and get educated.”
Zwart is president of Inwood, Iowa-based Clearview Windshields and says he only missed attending Auto Glass Week perhaps twice over the last 20 years.
“I would say the seminars and visiting with my many friends I have made through the years is one of the top attractions,” he adds.
Meanwhile, Jon Anderson of Dakotaland Autoglass in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, also says the networking available at this event is a key attraction.
“I’m a wholesaler primarily and I’m going to meet up with a lot of the representatives I work with from other companies that I buy from,” he says. “It’s a good chance to meet all of my suppliers at once place and one time.”
The event will feature special appearances by World Trade Center Survivor Chief Richard Picciotto and famed NASCAR driver Greg Biffle. Also don’t miss Jim Abbott, professional baseball player and motivational speaker. Auto Glass Week will be held September 18-20 at the Tampa Convention Center in Tampa, Fla.
