GlassBuild and GlassTec cancelled for 2020 – What happens next?

Posted by Gareth Ewen on 27 Jul 2020 in Running a glazing business, General

The 2 largest international glass trade shows have been cancelled for 2020. GlassTec which is usually held every 2 years in Düsseldorf was postponed until June 2021. This was followed by GlassBuild America cancelling the 2020 show planned for Las Vegas, which will now be returning to Atlanta in 2021. Given the global uncertainty and significant travel restrictions in place relating to Covid-19, this was not unexpected. Many large exhibitors had indicated they would not have attended even if the events had gone ahead.
