Glass Expo Midwest (GEMS) ’18 is back. The JW Marriott Indianapolis hotel in Indianapolis will host the big event November 8-9, 2018. As always, GEMS has a hard-hitting educational program slated for attendees, and an expansive trade show floor to provide the opportunity for hands-on time with new products and services.

“This is the first glass show in Indianapolis in nearly 15 years,” says account executive Casey Flores. “We are very excited about it.”

Exhibitors include companies such as DeGorter Inc., which will display brochures detailing its machinery, diamond/polish wheels, drills and samples in booth #306

Mappi America Inc. is also set to exhibit at GEMS ’18. Mappi America is an Italian manufacturer of tempering and lamination machinery. The company will display its products in booth #401.
