Deadlines to register for the Auto Glass Week™ competitions, June 7-9 at the Orlando County Convention Center, in Orlando, Fla., are fast approaching.

“There are many benefits to competition and each year it is one of the show’s highlights,” explains Donna Stivers, competition coordinator. “Beyond the prizes and bragging rights, all competitors tell us that it makes them better technicians, creates strong bonds with colleagues and provides an unprecedented opportunity to learn firsthand from others in the industry.”

Owners or managers of supplier companies may not compete. Competitors must be 18 years of age by the end of the competition.
  • All competitors must agree, comply and adhere with all rules and regulations throughout the competition. The rules and regulations are included in the competitor packets sent out before the show and online.
