GANA Fall Conference Cancelled in Advance of Hurricane Rita

The Glass Association of North America (GANA) was scheduled to hold its annual Fall Conference this weekend in Dallas, but that event has been cancelled due to the impending landfall of Hurricane Rita.

The Category 4 hurricane is expected to make landfall on Saturday and with many communities in the Gulf Coast still reeling from Hurricane Katrina, which devastated coastal Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama, few are choosing to travel to Dallas for business and many of those who wish to do so are being prevented from doing so. According to the GANA website, the "directly related curtailment of transportation services in the Dallas area" played a significant role in canceling the conference. More information about what the cancellation will mean to the industry as well as how the hurricane effects the industry will be provided as it becomes available.
