GlassBuild America Announces Two New Co-Sponsors

After a successful debut in March 2003, GlassBuild America: The Glass, Window & Door Expo, has announced that it is adding two new co-sponsors to its lineup - the Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance (IGMA) and the Bath Enclosure Manufacturers Association (BEMA).

Joining founding sponsors, the National Glass Association (NGA), the Glass Association of North America (GANA), and the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA), IGMA and BEMA will bring an even more comprehensive audience to the event.

"Our original mission for GlassBuild America was to create a showcase for all types of glass, window, and door products; the addition of IGMA and BEMA fulfills that mission even further," said Philip J. James, NGA president & CEO. "IGMA and BEMA members will bring a new dimension to this all-encompassing event and we are very pleased to welcome them as sponsors."

"IGMA is pleased to become a sponsor of GlassBuild America," said Margaret Webb, the executive director for IGMA. "We welcome the opportunity to educate the industry on insulating glass technologies and feel GlassBuild America will enhance our members' opportunities for growth and success. As an international organization, we are delighted to be part of an event with such global appeal."

"GlassBuild America is recognized as the premier showcase for glass and fenestration products. By joining together with NGA and the other sponsors, BEMA will help assure GlassBuild America will serve the needs of the shower enclosure industry and our members," said BEMA's Executive Director, Chris Birch.
