Glass Vegas isn’t just some old ordinary glass art trade show with that same mundane feeling. We’re a show that is driven by the passion, success, spirit, and energy of the entire glass culture. We thrive off of each and every one of you beautiful individuals in this tight-knit community and strive to embody that essence into the soul of the show. We invite you to join us and the rest of the GV Fam, February 7th-9th, 2022, in Las Vegas at Bally’s Hotel and Casino, to create lifelong connections and memories that will forever enrich not only your business but also your heart.

Glass Vegas 2022 will be our largest and hottest function glass art show yet! Our trade show floor will be packed with hundreds of the most talented glass artists and industry-related vendors in the country. Catch the headiest races in the glass art industry with the Derby in the Desert Race presented by Handmade and the Evergreen State Project. Get a glimpse of some of the most beautiful glass art of the year in the World Series of Glass, where artists submit their best pieces in Solo, Collab, Millie, Pendant, and the New Drinking Vessels categories. The Marble Exchange is an attending artist favorite where you can simply bring a marble and take a marble. If you are lucky enough to grab the @madglasser marble, you win a free booth for Glass Vegas 2023! You will also not want to miss the secret Millie Meetup Party with the location given only to those in the know. Our meetups in the past have been nothing short of phenomenal.

The silent auction at the Glass Vegas Expo is located on the show floor to benefit our Injured Artist Fund. 100% of the proceeds of the auction will go directly to the fund/ struggling artists, and there are no fees. You can participate by donating pieces to the auction and bidding on these beautiful pieces of art.
