Officials from the Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance announced the dates and location of its 2014 Annual Conference and Insulating Glass Educational Seminar, according to an Oct. 17 IGMA release. The combined event, set to feature informative lunch presentations on several industry technical issues, innovative networking sessions, meetings of several IGMA committees and more, will be held 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,” said Margaret Webb, IGMA Executive Director, in the release. The event will allow attendees of the education seminar to meet with industry leaders in insulating glass and experience the full offering of IGMA membership. “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.”

“The IGMA meetings are a must attend for everyone involved in the fenestration industry,” said IGMA President Frank Caporiccio, PPG Industries, in the release. “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.”

Additional schedule and registration information will become available on the IGMA website in the coming weeks.
