The National Glass Association (NGA) has announced that its trade show, GlassBuild America: The Glass, Window & Door Expo, will now be permanently moving to the fall beginning in 2005. .

After in-depth research and consultation with the industry, this landmark decision was made in response to the changing needs of the event. Traditionally, the NGA has held its annual trade show in the spring for over 50 years. The next GlassBuild America will be held September 13-15, 2005 in Atlanta, GA.

“Our original mission for GlassBuild America was to create a North American showcase for all types of glass, window, and door products; we felt the fall was the only time of year to effectively accommodate all of these diverse industry segments” says Philip J. James, NGA President & CEO. “We have not entered into this decision lightly; it was made only after thorough research and planning, and with the best interests of these industry segments at heart. We believe the fall timeframe will allow us to present a more unified event for everyone’s benefit.”

Denise Sheehan, NGA VP of Industry Events, also notes, “We believe this is the best move for the entire industry. For attendees, fall dates will mean lower airfare and better hotel rates—we will no longer be sitting on the peak spring break season. And for exhibitors, that means more attendees will come to see their products. It’s really a win-win for everyone.”
