The 2017 Gathering Booklet is available to download here


The International Society of Glass Beadmakers (ISGB) and Glass Craft & Bead Expo are coming together in Las Vegas, Nevada to create an amazing opportunity in 2017.

While these two events still operate independently of one another, the partnership will offer an unprecedented experience for glass artists, enthusiasts, and complimentary mediums for a must-attend event! 

ISGB will hold its annual conference, The Gathering, March 29 - April 2, with preconference workshops beginning on Tuesday, March 28. Events, presentations, and workshops will bring strong creative content that will not only educate, but inspire attendees. 

Glass Craft & Bead Expo workshops will begin March 29 - April 2 with their annual tradeshow March 31 - April 2. ISGB will add to the tradeshow on Saturday, April 1 by bringing their one day Glass, Beads & Jewelry Bazaar to the show floor. 

The ISGB Gathering, Glass Craft & Bead Expo, and all events will take place at the exciting South Point Hotel & Casino. More details on workshops, registration, and hotel reservations will be available this fall.
