2022 BEC Conference

-
| Grand Hyatt Nashville - Nashville, TN

Get ready for the 24th annual BEC Conference!
Book your hotel room now at the Grand Hyatt Nashville.


The event is being co-located with GPAD (Glass Processing Automation Days). An important aspect of this co-location is what we're calling "Bridge Day" - the opportunity to bring together glazing contractors, glass fabricators, and suppliers for special programming to tackle common pain points across the supply chain.

Bridge Day amounts to a joint half-day on the morning of Tuesday, March 29. BEC-only programming will begin as usual with the opening reception on Sunday evening and throughout the day Monday, March 28. See the schedule below for more details.


Registration will open in early December - stay tuned!
