GlassBuild America to open with record number of exhibitors

GlassBuild America: The Glass, Window & Door Expo will set new records when it opens its doors next Monday in Atlanta, organizers report. Running from September 10-12 at the Georgia World Congress Center, the event will feature more than 500 exhibitors for the first time.

Almost 540 companies will occupy 218,840 square feet of exhibit space—the highest totals in GlassBuild America history, according to officials from the National Glass Association, publisher of e-glass weekly and Glass Magazine. The Atlanta event will feature 130 new exhibitors, and 154 exhibiting companies from outside the U.S.

“Along with our highest number of exhibitors to date, we’re also very pleased with our pre-registration numbers this year—so far our overall registration is higher than this same time last year, and that trend has been consistent since registration opened,” says Denise Sheehan, NGA VP of industry events. “Looking at all of our various industry segments, the demographics are right on target with what we saw last year, so we know it’s going to be a great show.”

In addition to the show itself, GlassBuild America 2007 will feature an educational program, including a trend forecast seminar Tuesday from 10:15-11:45, a retail glass seminar Wednesday 8:30-10:00 and a decorative glass trends seminar Wednesday from 10:15-11:45.

The Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance of Ottawa, Ontario will host its educational seminar in conjunction with the show, and the NGA’s second Glazing Executives Forum will take place Monday.

The GlassBuild America program includes a variety of other opportunities, including demonstrations, on the show floor itself. The full schedule, as well as a complete list of exhibitors and registration information, is available at
