The program is on track to exceed 2012’s sold out Pavilion area and set a new record for participation.
“It is clear our industry values innovation and we are excited to provide the only trade show in North America that will display such industry innovation,” commented Denise Sheehan Vice President, NGA Industry Events.
As of May 3, nearly 20% of exhibiting companies at GlassBuild America 2013 have been accepted into the Innovative Product Promotion program. Many of these exhibitors are showcasing products and services for both the commercial and residential segments of the glass, window & door industry. The Innovative Product Pavilion – a designated area on the show floor for this expanding segment is 80% occupied with room to expand and is on track to be the largest Innovative Product Pavilion ever at GlassBuild America. Of the Pavilion exhibitors, seven are first time participants at GlassBuild America and more than 40% are repeating companies; they continually provide new products and use this program to promote their innovations.
