Disruptive trends are starting to shape how the contract glazing industry obtains, bids, and executes work. From glass innovation and design complexities to labor and capacity constraints, changes are dramatically affecting markets, customers, and more.

In the words of Winston Churchill, “If you don’t take change by the hand, it will take you by the throat.”

If you are a contract glazier or hire glaziers, “C-Suite Changes in the Contract Glazing Industry” at Glass Expo Southeast™ is a not-to-be-missed session.

Attila Arian, president of Schüco USA, one of the most knowledgeable authorities in the contract glazing business, will lead attendees through a review of how the industry has and will continue to evolve and why contractors must stay ahead of the curve.

Arian has more than 25 years of experience in the construction industry in Germany and the United States. Before Schüco, he was president of U.S. operations for seele and several other German design/build contractors. Under his leadership, seele became a recognized façade contractor in the U.S. with an impressive project portfolio, including the Apple Cube, Institute of Peace in Washington D.C., the Miami Art Museum, Kimbell Art Museum in Dallas, and the Broad Museum in Los Angeles.

This is just one of the many exceptional educational sessions on deck for Glass Expo Southeast™, Jan. 6-7 at the Rosen Plaza Hotel in Orlando. Free for subscribers of USGNN™, USGlass magazine and Architect’s Guide to Glass and Metal, this event should be first on your list of things to do in the new year.
