International Glass and Fenestration Community Convenes at GlassBuild America

While GlassBuild America has a massive U.S. footprint in terms of impact and relevancy with exhibitors across the supply chain, this year proves to have an international context more so than ever. Up North, Fenestration Canada has exhibited for the first time and will host their own Canadian mixer.

Meanwhile PiGs (People in Glass) has made the trek across the pond to see what's new and interact with their American counterparts. We also have our Italian GIMAV pavilion returning this year along with the Beijing International Fair.

This show strives and succeeds in bringing your business the best of this industry locally, nationally, and abroad. This year GlassBuild is charting entirely new stats in terms of size, exhibitors, education tracks, and attendees. Your suppliers, customers, and business solutions are HERE.
