The National Glass Association (NGA) has announced it will shift its NGA Glass Conference: Chicago to an interactive online event to take place July 28-30, 2020.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic implications and many company-enforced travel restrictions, the event previously planned to occur in Northbrook, IL, will now be hosted via private online video conference using the Zoom platform.

“NGA’s technical and codes work has continued to move forward unabated and we want to share that important work, and the resources that come from it, with our members and the industry,” says Nicole Harris, NGA president & CEO. “NGA has reimagined the NGA Glass Conference in a robust online format that will be both engaging and productive and that will allow us to reach new participants who may not have had the opportunity to attend the in-person conference.”

Participants can expect a mix of essential NGA Forming, Fabricating and Advocacy Committee updates paired with excellent educational content, including the popular technical and codes update. There will be opportunities for participants to engage in live Q&A with presenters.

Select sessions will also be AIA-accredited with the goal to encourage more architects to learn about glass and to aid in the fulfillment of required learning units that may have been impacted by the recent cancellation of the AIA Conference on Architecture.

Registration will open the week of May 18. Members and non-members are welcome and encouraged to attend. Stay tuned for more information at; FAQs on the new conference format can be found HERE.
