The American Architectural Manufacturers Association opened registration for the AAMA 81st Annual Conference, to be held Feb. 19-22, 2018 in Orlando, Florida, at the Loews Portofino Bay Hotel. This is the first-ever conference AAMA is hosting with the association’s new Monday through Thursday schedule, so those registering may wish to double-check their travel dates before confirming arrangements. A special rate is guaranteed through Jan. 26, and attendees are encouraged to book before this date. The AAMA Southeast Region 2018 Winter Meeting will immediately follow the conference in the same location, and separate registration is required.

The keynote speakers for the event will be two representatives of The Afterburners, giving a presentation called, “Plan, Brief, Execute, Debrief = Win.” Other speakers will cover a range of industry-specific and professional growth topics. Joe Hetzel from the Door & Access Systems Manufacturers Association will present, “Pedestrian Doors & Vehicular Access Doors: Similarities & Differences.” Dr. Fiona Solomon from the Aluminum Stewardship Initiative will give an address called, “Sustainability Standards & Certification in Raw Materials Supply Chains,” and Cristian Barcan from the Vinyl Institute will give an update on the vinyl industry. Finally, Meryl Williams, AAMA communications coordinator, will host a workshop entitled, “The Who, What and Why of Twitter: Better Engage Existing and Potential Customers.”

The conference also includes an annual awards banquet the night of Feb. 20, and an optional golf scramble on Feb.19 at Grand Cypress Golf Club.
