ACGA Convention 2023

July 19-22
Ritz-Carlton Hotel, New Orleans

Chairs: Suzanne and Gray Sexton


Hundreds of buyers and sellers of Brilliant Era cut glass will come to The 5-star Ritz-Carlton, New Orleans, LA, July 19-22, 2023, for the largest annual sale of rare American Brilliant cut glass.  Convention attendees will enjoy wonderful speakers, an abundance of educational opportunities, and of course, the fabulous Dealers Show!  

The four-day Convention of the American Cut Glass Association attracts top dealers who enjoy brisk sales from multi-million dollar inventories.  Buyers find unprecedented opportunities to acquire seldom-seen pieces.  Reflecting the artistry and craftsmanship of a bygone era, these handmade crystal antiques are blown and intricately cut using skills that have been lost for generations.

The Dealers Show at the 2023 ACGA Convention will feature the largest and most experienced cut glass dealers in the country.  Each is bringing several hundred pieces of fine Brilliant Period cut glass, especially selected to interest convention attendees.  Whether you're looking for over-sized pieces or smalls, you are sure to find something that needs to join your collection.

The Ritz-Carlton is adjacent to the fabulous French Quarter which includes antique shops, world renowned restaurants, and historic sites.  It is only fifteen minutes from the New Orleans International Airport. We negotiated an amazing hotel rate of only $149 a night which is good from July 16-23. Discounted parking and Wi-Fi are included. If you travel by plane, the Ritz-Carlton is only fifteen minutes from the New Orleans International Airport.
