Atlanta will be home to more than Ted Turner and his media empire when the city hosts interGLASSmetal/Fenestration world ’99 on November 3-5 at the Georgia World Congress Center.
More than 200 exhibiting companies will present the newest information and products in the industry. Exhibitors will display equipment, machinery and other products for the flat glass, primary glass and fenestration industries. Leading manufacturers of fabrication systems for architectural, metal, vinyl, raw glass trade products and related lines will be present, along with other suppliers.
In addition to product displays, individuals may also attend one of the approximately 30 seminars that will be held in conjunction with the event. Sessions will cover a range of topics including contract glazing, glass etching and a variety of window-related subjects.
The following is an advance look at the event including a list of exhibitors and seminars, as well as a sampling of places to visit while in Atlanta.
