The Talk

By Emily Kay Thompson

The editorial staff at Window & Door is excited to head to Las Vegas next week for GlassBuild America: The Glass, Window & Door Expo, where the who’s who of fenestration professionals will gather for the biggest event for the industry. In addition to tips on how to navigate the show floor and get the most out of the event, we also asked longtime exhibitors and attendees about what not to do.

If you’re making the investment of attending, you should want to make the most of it.”
