Going to San Francisco? IGMA Is
The insulating glass industry will travel to San Francisco for the Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance (IGMA) 2014 Annual Conference and Insulating Glass Educational Seminar, taking place March 4-7, 2014, at the JW Marriott Union Square in San Francisco.
“We’re combining our committee week and education seminar to provide attendees with a total value-added program,” says Margaret Webb, executive director of IGMA. “The week opens with a night tour of Alcatraz providing a unique networking opportunity for our members and seminar guests to interact in an intriguing environment. We are continuing the next day at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory where the Emerging Technology and Innovation Committee are meeting to work on IGMA’s research projects, get updates on current LBNL research and tour the state-of-the-art FlexLab facilities.”
IGMA president Frank Caporiccio of PPG Industries adds, “The IGMA meetings are a must-attend for everyone involved in the fenestration industry. Our standard development activities are recognized by the industry as addressing best practices for insulating glass production as well as supporting the long-term performance, quality and efficiency of these units. Guidelines for proper installation and maintenance of the units through their lifetime are also provided through the association.”
