General advertising for your business (products, services, etc.). We offer a number of paid advertising opportunities to help you reach your target audience.
The annual GAS Journal documents the lectures, presentations and proceedings of the conference, and has become a record showing the progress and evolution of the artists that have created the phenomenon of the contemporary glass movement. It is collected by libraries and organizations around the world and is mailed to all current members (and to those who attended the conference). Back issues are ordered throughout the year. It is also available for download and viewing on the GAS website. Tech Display vendors receive a 10% discount for Journal advertising (must have participated at most recent conference).
2016 Journal Ad Reservation Form will be posted after the conference (June 2016).
Scrolling Web Ads
GAS web ads appear on many key webpages at www.glassart.org. Limited to six, ads scroll continuously. Readers may click through to the URL of your choice. You may provide either an ad or simply your logo. Please contact the GAS office to learn whether any Web Ad spaces are currently available.
Marketplace is designed to put glass resources front and center, easy to find and easy to use. It is open to those providing services, equipment, and supplies to glass artists, including publications and organizations. Marketplace ads run November through October, but can be pro-rated for those who have missed the beginning of the cycle.
