GANA to Replace Glass Week with Annual Conference
August 23, 2011

GANA's last Glass Week took place this past March.

Officials at the Glass Association of North America (GANA) in Topeka, Kan., announced on August 22 the creation of a new event, the GANA Annual Conference, which will replace Glass Week. The conference will take place February 20-24, 2012, at the Hyatt Regency Sarasota in Sarasota, Fla.

"Glass Week was a great event for many, many years," says Ashley Charest, account executive of GANA. "After holding the event in conjunction with the BEC Conference the last few years, the GANA board of directors felt it was time to sunset Glass Week and create a new conference that is more in line with GANA's current and future goals."

The GANA Annual Conference will feature working meetings of the GANA divisions, as well as various committees, subcommittees and task groups. It also will feature a general session to provide education and technical information for the group as a whole.

GANA's Leaders of the Glazing Industry Conference (LOGIC) will remain in Las Vegas before the BEC Conference. Registration for all events will begin later this year.

Registration for the GANA Fall Conference opened last week and is available on the GANA website.
