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, who participated at the most recent conference, receive a 10% discount for Journal advertising.
GAS Website Ads
GAS web ads appear on many key webpages on our website. Readers may click through to the URL of your choice. You may provide either an ad or simply your logo. Please contact about available Web Ad spaces.
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.
All conference delegates receive this vital booklet of 80–100 pages that contains the conference schedule, presentation abstracts, presenter bios, Technical Display information, and more. The Program Book only allows for 8 pages of advertising. (Not included in this figure are messages from our sponsors.) Ads may be purchased on a first-come, first-served basis.
