Glass Craft & Bead Expo 2018 will be held at the South Point Hotel and Casino, classes March 29-April 2, exhibits April 6 – April 8. We are changing the opening date of class registration from the end of October to the end of November. An email will go out to everyone on our mailing list to announce the exact day you can start registering.
Unless you have recently registered to be on the mailing list (since March 15, 2016), you must submit a new registration and pay the fee for a class book (link below). This is due to increased costs for producing and mailing. We thought long and hard about only having the online version, but we know everyone loves to have the physical book. You will be credited for your payment when you register for classes, so it will not cost for those that do sign up for classes ($5 for domestic and Canada, $12 for International). If you only want to receive email updates and not the copy of the book, you can also do that on the mailing list link below. The complete book and all class descriptions will be viewable online also.
We have lots of new instructors and new classes from many of our wonderful returning instructors, and are sure you will find that it is worth the wait! This year we are also excited to announce that the International Society of Glass Beadmakers will be holding their conference, The Gathering, in conjunction with Glass Craft & Bead Expo. This will be a great addition to the show, bringing in additional students and exhibitors.
We look forward to an amazing conference with all of you! Thank you for your support throughout the years.
We’d like to thank all of the Sponsors, Exhibitors, Instructors, Instructor Assistants, Students and Attendees of the 22nd annual Glass Craft and Bead Expo for another great event.
