THE TALK... | Markets & Trends

What happens in Vegas shouldn’t stay in Vegas, at least this week—GlassBuild America: The Glass, Window & Door Expo opens today, and Window & Door will be spilling all of the activity on our social channels and on

While we hope you’re here for all the action in person, we’ll be tweeting live insights from Express Learning in booth #913. These TED Talk-style educational sessions address hot topics including the economic forecast, exit planning and succession, and environmental product declarations, among many others.

We’ll also be flooding your Instagram feed with all the imaginative exhibits and innovative products launched and showcased at the show. (In case you missed the product preview, click here.) And, we’ll even stream the Action Demos happening throughout the event.

On Thursday, I’ll switch gears and head to the Encore at Wynn to spend a full day with more than 70 professionals from the retail side of the industry. Watch Instagram and Twitter for updates from Window & Door Dealer Day, where a network of specialty retailers will participate in peer-to-peer forums after a morning keynote on the timely topic of exit planning and succession. With sessions covering workforce development, regulations and other challenges to business, industry benchmarking and more, I will do my best to convey the big takeaways from this important event.
