USGNN Original StoryGlass TEXpo™ '08 Hosts Opportunities for Networking

There is now less than one week to pre-register for the Glass TEXpo™ '08 golf tournament.

Yes, there is more to a trade show than the exhibit hall and seminar rooms-there are the opportunities for networking with your peers, and Glass TEXpo™ '08, the regional trade show co-sponsored by the Texas Glass Association (TGA), provides such opportunities.

The event, to be held at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas, April 10-12, is set to include a four-player Florida Scramble Golf Tournament on April 10. Sign up now and start practicing your swing, as trophies will be presented after the game for the first, second and third gross and net scores, the longest drive and closest to the pin.

If your golf game could use a little work, there are other opportunities for networking.

Start off your day prior to the seminars by enjoying some fresh coffee and candid conversation. In addition, Los Angeles-based C.R. Laurence Co. Inc. is sponsoring the Glass TEXpo™ welcoming cocktail reception on Friday, April 11, in the last hours of the trade show.

"With our generous sponsor, C.R. Laurence, we are able to take a standard networking event and maker it a higher caliber gathering," notes USGlass marketing director Holly Biller.

The following morning, from 9-10 a.m., the TGA will host its award breakfast.

At the 2006 show, the association recognized Bob Lawrence, president of Craftsman Fabricated Glass, for his contributions to the relief efforts following Hurricane Rita. Donald Day of Texas Glass and Tinting in Victoria, Texas, was presented with the Lou Green Award, which honors an outstanding professional in the glass industry. Attend the breakfast for a chance to meet this year's industry legends.
