After attending a full day of Glass Expo Northeast™ ’17 (GENE) seminars, consider taking a trip to Manhattan, which is a quick drive from the Hilton Long Island/Huntington Hotel.

geneGENE ’17 will be held March 30-31, 2017 and is the region’s largest glass-related conference and trade show dedicated to the architectural glass and metal industry.

In addition to being a good educational investment, the trip also offers you the opportunity for a quick getaway to The Big Apple. Huntington is based in Suffolk County, Long Island, and is 40 miles directly east of Nassau County, N.Y.

The Long Island Expressway (LIE) and Northern State Parkway are two major points of entry in and out of New York City, and both pass right through Huntington. The Long Island Railroad also has a frequent schedule of trains, whisking commuters away to New York City from four stations in town.

Imagine yourself taking in a Broadway show or a stroll through Central Park after catching up on the latest industry information and networking with your peers. This is all available to you at Glass Expo Northeast.

GENE ’17 is co-sponsored by the Long Island Glass Association, USGlass magazine, Architects’ Guide to Glass & Metal and™. To learn more about the event and to register, visit or to exhibit call 540/720-5584, ext. 120.
