GlassBuild America, to be held 14-16 September 2010 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, will also include the National Glass Association“s (NGA) educational programmes, with two full-day forums and two highly anticipated seminars already planned. I couldn“t be more pleased with the way our educational programmes have come together for the 2010 show, said David Walker, NGA vice president of Association Services. Everyone who attends GlassBuild America in 2010 will be extremely impressed by the calibre of our speakers, the relevance and timeliness of our discussion topics, and the depth of the programmes we“re offering. The 5th Annual NGA Glazing Executives Forum will be held 14 September, and will be a full day of breakout sessions, expert speakers, peer-to-peer sharing and networking. The 1st Annual Window & Door Dealers Forum, scheduled for 15 September, features breakout sessions, best practice sharing, top speakers and an informal networking reception. On 16 September, the Solar Energy and Energy Efficiency Seminar will include and combine topics from two of the most popular sessions from 2009, with, among panellists, a leading architect, a photovoltaics consultant, a university spokesperson, a glass and glazing subcontractor, and a thin-film photovoltaic module manufacturer. During the Decorative Glass Seminar on 16 September, leading experts in decorative glass will debate one of the most pressing industry questions: Is it the product or the design process that matters most? This panel presentation will explore how speciality glass is selected and perceived by each segment of the industry. GlassBuild America is organized by the National Glass Association, in partnership with the Glass Association of North America, the American Architectural Manufacturers Association, the Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance and the Bath Enclosure Manufacturers Association.
