GlassBuild America


They say what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, but when it comes to Glass Build America show, why leave it all behind? There is much to be gained at Glass Build, the largest annual gathering of its kind. Here are five reasons we think anyone in glass related industries should attend.

  1. Check out new products: Are you one of those people who gets your best ideas researching new innovations in the marketplace? If so, be sure to visit us at Glass Build and learn how our latest products can fit into your next project! Fans of our Panel Grip glass railing system can see our new Panel Grip Narrow, built with the same high strength aluminum shoe but in a slimmer profile. Accommodating 9/16” laminated glass, it’s an elegant and space saving solution that opens up even more possibilities for glass railing.
  1. Networking events: Keeping up with the latest trends is often a matter of the conversations you make with your peers. Glass Build is a great place to mingle with like-minded people in the industry and reconnect with colleagues and customers. New for 2018 is an Opening Reception from 5:00 to 6:30 on the evening of September 12th – an ideal setting to make introductions and get the lay of the land.
  1. Education and Conferences: In our ever-changing industry, there’s always plenty to learn. Running in tandem with Glass Build is the Fall Conference – where America’s top glass and glazing experts come together. Attend this as an active participant in helping to define industry standards and advance the expertise of architectural glass. Programs at the 13th Annual Glazing Executives Forum focus on Strategies for Smart Growth while allowing further networking opportunities to all who attend. Be sure to catch the action demonstrations, a new offering where you can learn about topics like hurricane impact and glass scratch removal to name just a few. Partake in Express Learning Sessions for insight into topics ranging from Technical Codes Updates to social media. Finally, Window & Door Dealer Day on September 13th is chock full of useful sessions such as the Industry Benchmarking Report, where you can gauge how your business stacks up.
  1. Because it’s Las Vegas! Nowhere else on earth do the worlds of work and play come together like they do in Las Vegas. The Las Vegas Convention Center, one of the biggest convention centers in the world, is conveniently situated between bustling Las Vegas Boulevard and the serene Las Vegas Country Club. And with desert temperatures in the 80’s, Las Vegas is a great place to get an extension on summer.
  1. Wagner will be there!

We told you a little about our new Panel Grip Narrow, but that’s not the only reason to visit our booth (#838). Stop in for all kinds of inspiration like those found in our non-weld modern glass components within our beautiful, architectural Legato™ Collection.

We look forward to seeing you at Glass Build America and learning what we can do to help you go above and beyond with your future glass railing projects. Stop by and say hi!
