Not Dressed Up But Someplace to Go

By Debra Levy

In late May, it became apparent to us that many people would not feel comfortable traveling to any industry events this year. We knew our readers still wanted education and the ability to interact with industry suppliers during the fall selling season. We knew suppliers had readied new and enhanced products to debut as well. We, it seemed, were all dressed up with no place to go.

Under the direction of our VP Holly Biller, we took on the creation of a brand new virtual trade show— Glass Expo VE —and we added GlassCon Global as an educational partner to offer thought-provoking seminars. We’ve worked to create a meaningful event in a virtual setting. Then we added some social events—morning yoga/meditation, a 5K charity run, a wine tasting seminar and networking lounge. The lounge has become a great vehicle to interact with USGlass columnists and bloggers. Each is anxious to meet and spend time with you and will be in the lounge according to the following schedule:
