Is the construction economy beginning to flatten out? What are the hottest segments for the glass and glazing industry? These are just a few of the questions glass research editor Nick St. Denis will answer during a Glass Industry Economic Update at Glass Expo Northeast™ (GENE) ’17.

St. Denis will also discuss what sort of growth the industry can anticipate from the commercial building sector, and how the New York metropolitan area—as well as the Eastern region of the U.S. as a whole—will fare.
