See you in Vegas!
By Jenni Chase
As I head to Las Vegas this week, I'm looking forward to seeing everyone on the GlassBuild America show floor. As well as I've gotten to know many of you on the phone or via email, nothing beats seeing each other in person. So, if you're in Las Vegas, please stop by Glass Magazine booth #1277 to say hi!

Finally, after months and months of buildup, GlassBuild America is here. I have attended this show pretty much every year since I started in the industry (even when it was just the “glass show”). One of the taglines for the show is “the place where the industry meets,” and it is so true.
