America's 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 Glass Showcase."

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 Showcase.

"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 fee."
