IGMA Summer Technical Conference Launch Pad for Emerging Technologies Focus

(Ottawa, Ontario) - The Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance (IGMA) Summer Technical Conference offers a program filled with top notch industry networking, a new round of document creation for the industry, a female “Top Gun,” and an Emerging Technology & Innovation (ETI) Committee that promises to excite fans of next generation IG technology and its use in building innovations today.

The Conference is scheduled June 4-7th in historic Ottawa, the capitol of Canada.

"IGMA represents the best of the best in the insulating glass industry,” says Dave Cooper of Guardian Industries Corp. and president of IGMA. “Our new ETI Committee will be setting up task groups to work on specific emerging technologies and innovations. With the current window market being extremely competitive, it is even more imperative to stay abreast of the standards and issues involved with them, especially with new technologies. I encourage everyone to be a part of tomorrow’s technology today and join our efforts by attending and getting involved in the future of our industry. "

"This event offers some of our best networking opportunities on top of the fantastic technical work," says Margaret Webb, Executive Director of IGMA. "On Tuesday, June 5 th, attendees will work together on the Urban Quest Scavenger Adventure in teams and armed with a clue package. The reward at the end of the quest is a mystery restaurant located in Ottawa’s historic downtown Market and a shared experience with others in the industry."

Registration for the event is available online at the IGMA website at www.igmaonline.org. Attendees are strongly encouraged to get their hotel reservations made by Friday, May 11 th to guarantee the special $179 room rate.
