GlassBuild America 2017 Gallery

September 8, 2017

We're here and we're ready has been a repeated refrain in the days leading up to GlassBuild America  2017. Hurricane Irma battered Florida over the weekend, leaving glass industry companies unsure of how their own businesses would fare, let alone if they would come to the show. And as Irma, now downgraded to a Tropical Storm, continued to threaten the Atlanta area with gusty wind, power outages and flooding, traveling to the area became risky.

But staff, exhibitors, speakers are here, and ready. While it's under unusual circumstances, weather reports forecast sun this afternoon, and GlassBuild America 2017 opened today and will run through 2 p.m. on Thursday. Here are highlights from Day 1.
