The tradition continues – GlassBuild America returns this fall

It's "Back to Business. Back to GlassBuild.” as the industry readies for September 2021 reunion

NGA is pleased to announce GlassBuild America: The Glass, Window & Door Expo is on schedule for September 13-15 in Atlanta, GA, at the Georgia World Congress Center. The 18th edition of the largest glass, glazing, window and door event in the western hemisphere returns for buying and business building that only an in-person trade show can deliver.

Exhibitors and attendees will once again talk directly to one another about glass and fenestration opportunities and challenges, such as supply, operational efficiencies and the new products, services and solutions that address the industry’s needs.

“We are eager to get back to business and for our industry to get back to buying and selling in person,” said Nicole Harris, NGA president & CEO. “The construction industry is busier than ever and more challenged to meet demand; precisely the reason to make the time to get to Atlanta for the show this year.”

Attendee and exhibitor safety is always a priority and will be elevated this year. Equally important is providing the right venue for learning better ways to innovate and grow. GlassBuild America is poised to welcome exhibitors who are ready to deliver the new products and services glass and fenestration companies need most.

In the most recent listing of trade shows nationwide, GlassBuild America was ranked at No. 97 on Trade Show News Network (TSNN)’s Top 250 Trade Shows list for 2019, up from 117 in 2018. The TSNN list represents the top 250 trade shows held that year in the U.S., ranked by net square footage. In 2019, GlassBuild America had a net square footage of 187,000 and 420 exhibitors.

Presented by NGA, along with association sponsor Fenestration and Glazing Industry Alliance (FGIA), GlassBuild America is a comprehensive and united event connecting the glass and fenestration industry to share common challenges and solutions.

Scheduled in conjunction with GlassBuild America will be the NGA’s Glazing Executives Forum, scheduled for September 13. 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 conjunction with the Glazing Executives Forum.

Registration for the 2021 event is scheduled to open June 1.
