The three-day event will host nearly 400 exhibitors in more than 1,000 booth.
The Glass, Window & Door Expo, grew 40% in the second quarter, according to Show Organizers at the National Glass Association. Of the 325+ companies currently participating, nearly 130 have been added to the exhibitor list within the last three months, representing a broad spectrum of products for both the Commercial and Residential segments of the glass, window & door industries.
In the second quarter, 30 first-time participants have committed to GlassBuild America. Owens Corning, Applied Photovoltaics, Klein USA, NanaWall, and Chromatics Glass, Inc. have qualified to display in the Innovations Pavilion, while Portalp USA, Inc., Goldiden Industrial Co., Ltd., MAAX Bath, Inc. and Muller Technologies will also display their products at the show for the first-time. While the second quarter has always been a strong sales period for the September show, the number of additional companies has surpassed expectations, indicating the glass, window & door industry is ready to “roll forward”, as the show tagline for 2010 states. While some exhibitors are not occupying the amount of space they have in the past, they are finding the means to participate in this important venue and realize it holds tremendous value for their company going into the ongoing unpredictability of 2011 and beyond.
“GlassBuild America continues to be the only show that is of the industry, by the industry and for the industry,” says Denise Sheehan, Vice President of Industry Events, National Glass Association. “We will continue to present the cutting-edge products and technologies for the glass, window and door market place; connect customers and potential buyers to sellers along with providing key relevant educational topics.”
