Officials from the National Glass Association and Window and Door Dealers Alliance announced extended show hours for this week's GlassBuild America: The Glass, Window & Door Expo. GlassBuild America will extend show hours on Wednesday, from 8 a.m. - 7 p.m., and on Thursday from 8 a.m. - 2 p.m. due to the timing of Hurricane Irma.

NGA\WDDA officials said in the statement:

"With many people arriving later today into tomorrow, the extra hours will maximize opportunities for attendees and exhibitors to conduct business at GlassBuild, which has worked with vendors and the Georgia World Congress Center to extend show hours on both Wednesday and Thursday, adding one hour Wednesday morning, two hours  Wednesday evening and one hour on Thursday morning.

"There will be extra security on the show floor during these extra show hours, and it is optional for exhibitors to staff their booth during additional show hours."

Adjusted Expo Floor Show Hours:

  • Wednesday, Sept. 13 – 8 a.m. -7 p.m.
  • Thursday, Sept. 14 – 8 a.m. - 2 p.m.

Private meeting rooms will be available at no charge to exhibitors who would like continue to meet with their customers after the show closes at 2 p.m. on Thursday. Rooms are available on a first come, first serve basis. Sign up for a room in the GlassBuild sales office, room B212.
