Welcome to Florida's Premier Educational Event!

Florida's premier educational and networking event! Since 2012, The Glass+Metal Symposium™ has been educating Florida architects and industry professionals on design trends, construction methods, and new product technologies. Our speakers are industry professionals who are not only experts in their respective fields but also understand the unique challenges we face in the State of Florida and in the hurricane market. This half-day event is designed for architects, general contractors, developers and industry professionals involved with the design, construction, and maintenance of the building envelope and more. We offer architects 5 AIA LU/HSW and all participants will receive a certificate of completion. 

Event Chair and Co-Founder


Crawford-Tracey Corporation co-founded the Glass+Metal Symposium in 2012 with the idea to create an educational and interactive forum for architects and industry professionals who deal with the design and construction of the building envelope in Florida. Crawford-Tracey is the largest Florida based glazing contractor in the industry offering a complete line of impact and non impact-resistant window and door products. The company designs, manufactures and installs all of its products. 


2020 Event Co-Chair

Enviralum Industries, Inc. is a storefront system and entrance door manufacturer that services the glazing contractors and manufacturers of other fenestration products to complement their production lines. Enviralum systems are tested for hurricane codes but they offer variable glazing, so they are not limited to use in hurricane-prone areas.
