Gain a Glimpse of Glass South America ’98

Individuals interested in viewing the products of over 150 companies, participating in a variety of technical conferences and networking with more than 5,000 industry professionals, may want to attend Glass South America ’98. The third annual show will be held November 18 to 21 at the 400,000-square-meter Expo Center Norte in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Organizers say the show moves into the larger Blue Hall to accommodate the large number of attendees and exhibitors.

More than 150 companies from 11 countries participated in last November’s Glass South America Show and Window-Expo in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Of the 5,000 delegates who visited the exhibition and seminar sessions, a fifth were from outside Brazil.

According to show organizers, Sao Paulo is the ideal location for Glass South America. Sao Paulo is the largest commercial and industrial center in South America and the capital of the ‘Mercosur,’ a free trade agreement which represents more than 200 million consumers in Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay.

Exhibiting companies will display products including architectural flat glass, automotive glass, machinery and tools, glazing accessories, mirrors, shower enclosures, glass furniture, curtainwalls, window framing, door systems and hardware and security.

Show organizer, Miller Freeman, says the array of attendees will include building designers and specifiers, property developers, construction industry representatives, automotive glass processors/installers, glass processing companies and window installers and manufacturers.

When attendees are not in the exhibit hall, there are a variety of educational sessions to attend. Seminars cover topics including reflective glass, forced convection heating and low-E tempering, insulating glass/components overview, energy management, double glass fabrication, development/world-wide market, silicon sealant and its applications in civil construction, lamination of glass with resin and silk-screen on glass.

Two additional events, Window EXPO ’98 and the eighth International Granite, Marble and Ornamental Stones Exhibition ’98, will be held in conjunction with Glass South America. According to Miller Freeman, the synergy between these events will provide a bigger attendance of constructors, architects, engineers, decorators and distributors.
