Exhibiting companies from all over the world displayed some of the most innovative and exciting products available on the market today.
The annual GlassBuild America Welcome Reception, co-sponsored by Quanex Building Products and NGA was a huge success with nearly 900 people packing the ballroom, proving that this event is the absolute best networking opportunity around.
GlassBuild America 2011 will also be remembered for the incredible educational opportunities and professional forums that took place. The Glazing Executives Forum kicked off the week with a powerful keynote speech by Serious Energy CEO Kevin Surace. His insights had attendees buzzing long after the event was complete.
On Tuesday, two major education events took place. The 2nd annual Window & Door Dealers Forum brought together many of who are working hard to make a difference in their industry. The session had the attendees very excited– see their reactions:
The 1st Annual NGA Architects Forum offered an eclectic group of speakers and highly rated education. This new program is sure to grow and will be an absolute must for architects to earn education credits in the area of architectural glass. Headlining speaker Edward Mazaria did not disappoint as his presentation not only energized the crowd, but was relayed worldwide on several Twitter feeds.
Wednesday, 3 seminars took place beginning with a standing room only Building Integrated Photovoltaic event, followed by updates on Decorative Glass and Window & Door Performance Standards. Overall, the education opportunities provided at GlassBuild America delivered!
