MARBLE EXCHANGE

Everyone at Glass Vegas has lost their marbles! Simply put: The opportunity of a lifetime. This “Secret Santa” game of exchange brings together marble makers from all over the country. Imagine pulling from a goodie bag of glass, an elite ball of wonder hand crafted by those aching souls; just like you. The excitement and cheering of the crowd as you dig deep and hold tight to see what magic you just might get to lay your yearning hands on. Last year’s game was insanely satisfying. One lucky 1st timer grabbed a ‘Paid in Full’ artist booth prize right out with his new crown jewel; courtesy of the masterfully brilliant; Josh Mazet. Just Amazing.

Marble Exchange returns to Glass Vegas and the World Series of Glass line-up!! The rules are simple! If you bring a marble, you can take a marble! Marbles must be a minimum of $100 in value and a minimum of 1.5" in size. Marbles will be on display until the final day when they will be passed out at random! If you pick the marble made by TBD you get the marble & win a FREE artist booth for Glass Vegas 2020!!

MILLIE MEETUP

Don't miss this awesome meetup! What’s a business trip without a little side action? We’ve done it, our secret afterhours party is out. The drop spot will be known only to those with the password. Last year’s elevator ride to the top was an impossible dream quickly realized by those that attended. Security may have had an issue, but I can assure you that we did not. Without dropping names or jumping on every little detail surrounding the dopest gathering of 2018, I’ll just say that in 2019, expect nothing less than spectacular. More details on the Millie Meetup for 2019 coming soon...

THE BACKYARD

Relax and enjoy the backyard. The official playground of Glass.Vegas. A secret yard touting the chillest vibes, comfiest loungers and illest games located just behind the convention hall surrounded by an 8ft tall x 90ft long picketed fence of graffiti art. No longer will you need to find a dark spot in a far off corner of a loading dock to reset, regroup and re-initiate your brain sequence. Let’s solve the worlds issues.. together… Phone chargers included.

WHO WE ARE

Glass Vegas is produced by Las Vegas Management, the company that has produced the Glass Craft & Bead Expo in Las Vegas for 24 years. Las Vegas Management also produced the International Hot Glass Invitational in 2009, bringing together artists from around the world for the largest team flame off ever held. Las Vegas Management's goal is to provide professional show management in a great destination city.

GLASS VEGAS INJURED ARTIST FUND

The injured artists fund can be a physical injury that keeps the artist from working, or another indirect injury that also would keep the artist from working, such as theft, fire, etc.

An artist will need to be part of the Glass Vegas Family (having exhibited with Glass Vegas) and notify us they have had an injury or loss. We will send an application to fill out, and it has to be accompanied by documentation (doctor/hospital paperwork, police/insurance report, other proof of the loss), and also an affidavit from another artist confirming the injury or loss and their recommendation of the applicant.
We will distribute funds in the amounts of $500 or $1000 for each approved application, and will continue throughout the year until the fund is depleted, then start all over again at the next show.
