About

AMERICAN GLASS EXPO PRIDES ITSELF IN THE PRESERVATION OF THE GLASS INDUSTRY BY PROMOTING AMERICAN MADE PRODUCTS.

NO SPICE OR BATH SALTS. NO SYNTHETIC DRUGS OF ANY KIND. ANY ATTENDEE PROMOTING THESE ITEMS WILL BE REMOVED FROM THE VENUE.

Our attendees have been invited by exhibitors personally or have heard about the show via word of mouth. We are the most exclusive multi purpose trade show within the industry. You absolutely must have credentials as an active industry member in order to be admitted. No public is allowed.
A.G.E. is known for holding special events that make our show more than just a trade show. An exclusive industry award show is held after hours at A.G.E. Annually. Specialists have come to share their knowledge as guest speakers for seminars. Non-profit auctions have been held to raise money for a good cause and involve our artists in positive ways. The most prestigous glass blowers in the world have come to demonstrate their expertise by doing live demo sessions. Incredibly rare collabs are created during show hours.


We welcome all artists to share their new innovative ideas. No other trade shows for our glass community combine so many incredible events into one.

AGE & the American Glass Expo is a non-profit show. What this means is; we created an industry trade show with the basis of making pricing affordable to those individuals and companies who would have otherwise not been able to afford other large scale trade shows. American Glass Expo is the trade show where vendors get a non union venue at an affordable price and we stick to a budget that works for vendors and show operations, while not profiting additionally.

But we didn’t stop there! The American Glass Project is a 501c3 charity that controls our charity auctions, demonstrations and education since 2011. We are proud to contribute to the glass community!

We take good care of our attendees, both buyers and exhibitors alike. A.G.E. was created to better serve our industry as a whole. It is made for us, by us. All feedback is appreciated so we can continue to make progress.
