Casso-Solar Technologies All Set to Attend GCG2020 VE


Coronavirus epidemic has restricted human movements across the globe, and as a result several annual industry tradeshows and events stand cancelled. Restriction of movements doesn’t imply restrictions on sharing thoughts or gaining insights on key industry trends or discussing the future of the industry, however. If you belong to the architectural glass, metal, or fenestration industries, you can interact with key people in your industry through the upcoming virtual event – GlassCon Global VE- Glass Expo VE (GCG2020 VE). This event will be held on September 9-10, 2020. This event combines several popular Glass Expos and GlassCon Global education program into one format – an interesting virtual event.

Casso-Solar Technologies, a leading manufacturer of industrial heat processing equipment and infrared custom ovens, is gearing up for virtual participation in this event. The company has been serving the glass processing, paint and powder finishing, textile, and plastic and film industries for over 60 years now. Casso-Solar sees this as an opportunity to gain knowledge, develop new relationships, and see what others are doing to adjust to the “new normal”.
