    DC4 Glaziers and the Finishing Trades Institute welcome you to join us for the largest Industry related event in Western and Central New York. We are joined annually by leaders in the Glass & Glazing field from all over the United States.

Our 2022 WCNY Glazing Forum was so much fun!

On October 14th we had 155 attendees including architects, spec writers, contractors, exhibitors, trainers, and other industry leaders from across the USA join us in Buffalo, New York. 
5 AIA Learning Units were offered through 10 separate presentations.  Our exhibitors were amazing offering a variety of products, services, demonstrations and information related to the industry.
Thanks to all of those that were able to make this event a success!
