The largest glass, window and door show in the Americas is launching a new education program during GlassBuild America: The Glass, Window & Door Expo in Las Vegas, Sept. 9-11, 2014.

The content experts at Glass Magazine and Window & Door, official publications of the National Glass Association, are producing a series of 20-minute glass and fenestration business and product sessions free and open to all registered attendees across the three days of the show.  

“We have replaced the traditional seminars with our version of TED Talks®, the globally successful idea-sharing format, but with glass and fenestration industry priorities and interests in mind,” explains Jenni Chase, Content Director.

The Express Learning sessions, presented on the show floor in a new theatre, feature a mix of industry expert and staff-led topics. The preliminary schedule includes the following topics: 

  • Solving our Worker Shortage
  • Showroom Dos & Don’ts
  • What Installers Want You to Know
  • Trending Now: Oversize Glass
  • Interior Architectural Door Hardware Solutions
  • Improve Your Website: Where to Start?
  • Sold on Decorative Design
  • Help Architects Help You
  • Lead Generation Strategies
  • Smart PR Tactics
  • Before You Buy or Expand: What to Consider 

This new educational offering is in addition to the NGA Glazing Executives Forum, set for Tuesday, Sept. 9 and WDDA Dealers Forum, on Wednesday, Sept. 10 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The all-day events focus on trends and best practices and feature top industry analysts.
