Chinese Curtainwall Tariff Expert to Speak at BEC Conference

The Glass Association of North America (GANA) announced that noted attorney David M. Spooner of Squire Sanders will be a featured speaker at its upcoming BEC Conference.

Spooner was formerly the Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Import Administration. 

In that capacity, he led government enforcement of trade remedy laws, principally the antidumping and antisubsidy laws. Late last year, the U.S. government slapped large tariffs on curtainwall units coming in from China. There have been many industry questions on the tariff, how high will they go, and what U.S. customs will do for enforcement. Spooner’s presentation will answer those questions and focus on what the tariff means to glass and glazing businesses in 2013 and 2014, according to GANA.

“We are excited to offer David as a featured speaker for GANA’s BEC Conference,” says Brian Pitman, director of marketing and communications.

“The new tariff on Chinese curtainwall has generated significant discussion among glazing contractors. David will be able to offer definitive answers to the many questions surrounding the tariff, as well as provide insights to maximize the beneficial effects for glaziers in North America. David’s session at the BEC Conference only cements the ‘must attend’ nature of this event.”

GANA’s BEC Conference will take place at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas on March 17-19.
