Now is the time to make sure that all your plans are set. Boasting more than 40 innovative technical presentations from industry experts and unmatched networking opportunities, GlassCon Global is an industry event you can’t afford to miss.

Organized by FCA International and partners, GlassCon Global will feature technical presentations and provide 14 CEU credits for AIA members.

GlassCon Global’s plenary panel discussions will feature some of the brightest minds in the industry.
