The National Glass Association (NGA) is pleased to announce that GlassBuild America: The Glass, Window & Door Expo is returning to Las Vegas, Nevada, October 18-20, at the Las Vegas Convention Center, and that registration is now open.

“This year’s theme underscores GlassBuild’s draw as the glass and fenestration industry’s first-choice destination to buy, learn and network in three impactful days,” said Nicole Harris, NGA president & CEO.
“Every year, we add value for attendees seeking new products, business tools and supply chain solutions, and this year, we’ve opened our umbrella wider by co-locating with another non-profit trade association event, the World Millwork Alliance (WMA) Annual Convention & Tradeshow for residential door and window buyers.”
The NGA and the Fenestration and Glazing Industry Alliance (FGIA) are once again hosting attendees in the Industry Pavilion, and also in a second location on the show floor, the GlassBuild Main Stage. The Industry Pavilion is “The Hub” for members of both organizations and for anyone wishing to know what the industry’s leading trade associations provide. The GlassBuild Main Stage will feature Express Learning, the Industry Forecast presented by ITR Economic’s Connor Lokar, award presentations and various demonstrations.
Attendees and exhibitors will close out the 3-day event at the show’s new GlassBuild Tailgate Party, a casual, block party-style barbecue featuring food trucks, music, games, refreshments and a grilling throw-down among industry members. Proceeds from this new event will support the NGA Foundation, a charity that funds industry education and training.
Glazing Executives Forum
Running in conjunction with GlassBuild America for its 17th year is NGA’s Glazing Executives Forum, scheduled for October 18. Forum attendees will have an opportunity to go deeper into top-of-mind topics unique to installing companies. At this one-day conference, leaders of contract glazing and full-service glass companies come together to learn and share best business practices, and have an opportunity to walk the GlassBuild America trade show floor. For those who want to get more involved, a meeting of NGA’s Installing Committee is also held in tandem with the Glazing Executives Forum.
