Industry Experts Lead Education at Glass Expo Northeast™ ’22

After a three year wait, Glass Expo Northeast™ ’22 (GENE) is back in New York, April 6-7, at the Long Island Marriott in Uniondale. The event will feature several educational seminars, including three AIA-accredited courses, led by glass and glazing industry experts.

Stewart Jeske, founder and president of JEI Structural Engineering, will provide a detailed understanding of architectural intent, building structural movements, manufactured system limitations and design loads and methods during his session “Glazing System Delegated Design.” He was praised for his top-rated seminar at Glass Expo Southeast™ (GESE) ’22, which covered important system objectives. The course provides one AIA LU HSW.

“Understanding Glass Railing Codes, Specs and Materials”, presented by Alberto Alarcon, marketing specialist for Kuraray Trosifol® interlayers, is another AIA-accredited course. Alarcon will examine the safety concerns around the glass in railing systems and the new building code requirements that address the use of these systems.

The final AIA-accredited course will be “Hurricane Impact Resistance with Aluminum Glazing Systems” presented by Greg Galloway, ProTek® brand manager for YKK AP America Inc. During his hour-long session, Galloway will discuss the destructive power of a hurricane and review action taken over the last 15 years to eliminate sources of failure.

This year’s attendees can also attend the educational seminar, “Glass and Glazing Industry Economic Outlook for the Northeast,” hosted by Debra Levy, publisher of USGlass magazine and its online news service, USGNN™. This seminar will provide listeners with recent industry-specific research and up-to-date information on the region’s economic status, including what to expect in the commercial and residential glass and metal industries and what to anticipate as a result of market shifts.

And Janine Driver is back for another Glass Expo keynote address, after a successful presentation at last month’s GESE. Driver has been featured on the Today Show with tips for body language and how to be more likable and is also a New York Times best-selling author for “You Say More Than You Think.” She provides her audience with scientifically based and easy-to-use communication tools to break bad communication habits, recognize common assumptions and build confidence.

In addition to two days of comprehensive educational sessions, GENE also offers opportunities for attendees to interact with decision-makers and networking opportunities for the architectural glass and metal industries. The event includes a trade show filled with exhibitors offering their latest products and developments, beginning Wednesday, April 6, from 3-7:30 p.m. Opening night on the show floor also offers a welcoming cocktail party from 5-7 p.m. The show continues on Thursday, April 7, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

  1. We love working with high quality glazing contractors, architects and manufactures on design build projects. The Glass Expo’s are a great way to connect good people. Loved Stewart Jeske detailed understanding of architectural intent, building structural movements, manufactured system limitations and design loads and methods during his session “Glazing System Delegated Design.”
