Pittsburgh Glass Works (PGW) will return as a Gold Sponsor of Auto Glass Week™ 2016 this fall in San Antonio, Texas. The three-day international event will feature automotive glass repair and replacement competitions, educational seminars and an exhibition floor.
“Getting to meet our current customers and new customers is one of the most beneficial parts of being a sponsor at Auto Glass week,” says Dawn March, social media specialist. “We’ve been a sponsor in past years, and like to continue our sponsorship and participation with Auto Glass Week every year.”
It is important for PGW to support the event because of the educational meetings and networking opportunities.
“Not only are the meetings beneficial, but so are the people we get to meet at our booth to help grow our business,” says March. “We can quickly address any customer issues, and can finally meet some of our valued customers face to face.”
One key area education comes into play at Auto Glass Week is with Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). Automotive glass technicians need to be prepared. These systems include cameras, which are often connected to the windshield.
“Learn as much as you can about the ever-evolving technology when it comes to windshields, and always deliver a quality job to every customer,” says March.
She calls the event “engaging.”
PGW will be at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas, on October 5-7, 2016, featuring its products on the exhibit floor.
“We’ll be featuring our newest innovation, our Corning Gorilla Glass coated windshield,” says March. “The windshield is lightweight, durable and featured on the Ford GT Supercar.”
The company will also offer its bi-monthly “Sundry Saver” flier and will be taking orders on site.
The annual event, co-sponsored by the Auto Glass Safety Council™, Independent Glass Association, National Glass Association, National Windshield Repair Association and AGRR™ magazine, draws attendees and top players from throughout the industry to the exhibition floor each year.
Auto Glass Week will be held at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center and San Antonio Marriott RiverCenter in San Antonio, Texas.
