Show cancellation

Guardian Glass has pulled out of Glasstec 2020, citing the coronavirus pandemic as the reason.

The company said its priority is a swift and successful resumption of business, as well as the acceleration of its own digital transformation.

“Our decision not to participate at this year’s event was not taken lightly, but was done with the health and safety of our employees and customers in mind, being respectful of the current business environment,” Kevin Baird, president and CEO of Guardian Glass, said.

“These are challenging times for everyone, and it has required all of us to think differently about how we do business. We want to build on this momentum of necessary innovation and develop new ways of supporting our customers and other preferred partners through enhanced digital tools and collaboration.”

Recent digital initiatives by Guardian Glass include online architectural glass workshops currently running across Europe, with similar digital events slated for the US and other regions in the coming weeks.

The company said it will continue to build out its digital content and product portfolio to inspire new thinking in the use of glass in commercial architecture, as well as helping to deliver more comfortable and energy-efficient living environments.
