Top Glass trade show

April 20, 2016
International Centre, Mississauga, Ontario

Top Glass returns April 20 with an exclusive learning program for the Canadian architectural glass industry.

Top Glass, Canada’s event for the industrial, commercial and institutional architectural glass industry, will once again feature a full-day program of educational seminars and glazing technology displays on April 20 at the International Centre in Mississauga, Ont. The conference will also feature the presentation of the Ontario Glass and Metal Association’s 2015 Awards of Excellence for execution and design in the glass building envelope trade. Top Glass seminars are listed by the Ontario Association of Architects as qualifying attendees for structured learning credits. Admission and parking are free.

“Top Glass has grown again this year from its very promising start in 2014,” commented Danielle Labrie, event manager. “We sold out exhibit space more than two months before the show date and had to add room at the venue. I think the opportunity for architects and architectural technologists to get four learning credits in one day has been a big draw.”

  • The Longevity Equation: Common modes of failure in insulating glass units and what to do about them – presented by Brian Hubbs of RDH Building Science

The presentation will take place in the Top Glass lecture theatre.
