ABOUT GLASSBUILD AMERICA
Now in its 14th year, GlassBuild America: The Glass, Window & Door Expo is the gathering place for the entire glass, window and door industries. Presented by the National Glass Association and the Window & Door Dealers Alliance along with show co-sponsors, the American Architectural Manufacturers Association, the Glass Association of North America and the Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance, and in conjunction with industry’s leading publications – Glass Magazine and Window & Door – GlassBuild America is a comprehensive and united event. For more information, visit www.GlassBuildAmerica.com.
In 2016, GlassBuild America is being held in October because of a date change by our marketing partner show, glasstec in Dusseldorf, Germany. glasstec, the largest glass industry trade fair in the world, was bumped out of its usual October timeframe into the September timeframe by an even larger plastics industry trade fair. This meant GlassBuild America had no choice but to shift to October for our 2016 event.
