What Happens in Vegas
By Audrey Bailey, Franklin Window & Door


The popular marketing campaign, “what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” won’t necessarily apply to this year’s GlassBuild America and Window & Door Dealer Days event. For newcomers like myself, this event seems like one for sharing ideas and networking with leading figures in the industry—which can and will extend long after the event comes to a close.
Just merely a year ago, it would have been hard to imagine going to Las Vegas to be part of such a nationally recognized event. But life is full of surprises. Now, working for Franklin Window and Door, I see the promise of working for a small business and the unique opportunities that arise as a result.
