Glass Showcase Announced
Americas Glass Association (AGA), in cooperation with the Independent
Glass Association (IGA) and USGlass magazine, have announced a strategic
partnership and development of a new show called the "America's
Designed for architectural and auto glass retailers of all types,
the event will bring together three groups to hold their own conferences
and develop one super-sized exposition. Both the AGA and the IGA
will co-locate their exhibitions in one location next year, joining
together to create Americas' Glass Showcase, which will feature
an auto glass area and an architectural area.
USGlass magazine will serve as exclusive sales agent for the show,
which will be held in Las Vegas at the Cashman Center May 18-19
next year and then begin to move around the country in late February-early
March in subsequent years.
"It's a great idea," said AGA president Donn Harter. "Americas
Glass Association serves retailers, and many retailers provide both
architectural and automotive glass services. CGA and its successor
AGA have concentrated their efforts on architectural glass retailers.
Bringing both shows together gives those who do both, or those AGA
members involved in auto glass, a greater opportunity to learn."
"Registrants may sign up to attend the AGA Conference, the
IGA Conference or both," said Debra Levy, publisher of USG.
All registrations will include admission to the America's Glass
"We are happy to be part of this," said Levy, "it's
going to be a great educational resource and a wonderful marketplace.
It's a great deal for attendees, and a great deal for exhibitors
who get access to registrants from multiple events for one booth
