USGNN Original StoryGEMS '08 to Host Networking Opportunities

Glass Expo Midwest™ (GEMS) 2008 is set to take place December 8-10 at the Renaissance Schaumburg Hotel & Convention Center in suburban Chicago. The event will offer two days of seminars, workshops, a trade show and opportunities for networking. In fact, 94 percent of previous years' attendees say that GEMS is the only glass industry event they would attend this year. Of that 94 percent, 92 percent say GEMS is the only trade show of any kind they will attend all year. These figures are evidence that the Midwest relies on GEMS as its main marketplace, so the event's networking opportunities provide an ideal setting for suppliers and customers alike to meet and greet.

A welcoming cocktail/holiday party sponsored by Gunther Mirror Mastics will take place on Tuesday, December 9 at 6 p.m. Celebrity Santas will also be on the scene—make sure you're there and see if you can guess who they are.
