IGMA Summer Technical Conference to Focus on Emerging Technologies and MoreMay 11th, 2012 by DWM Magazine
The Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance (IGMA) Summer Technical Conference will be held June 4-7 in Ottawa, Ontario. Association officials say the event will include several networking opportunities and a meeting of the recently formed Emerging Technology & Innovation (ETI) Committee, along with a focus on document creation throughout its three days.
“IGMA represents the best of the best in the insulating glass industry,” says IGMA president Dave Cooper of Guardian Industries Corp. “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,” adds Margaret Webb, executive director. “On Tuesday, June 5, 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.
