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.
The 2019 FIT Show is fast approaching (21-23 May) and the Smart-Builder team is excited to be heading back to Birmingham for what we're sure will be another fantastic trade show. Read on for our ideas on where to go and how to get around while you're in Birmingham.
