Our Education Focus Never Stops during GlassBuild
|Dean Lewis, AAMA Technical Manager, Training and Education, leads an Express Learning session about field testing during last year’s show.|
Now in its third year, Express Learning will take place live on the GlassBuild America tradeshow floor. These popular TED Talks-style educational sessions will address the business and product trends affecting each of the industry’s unique segments, from full-service glass companies and contract glaziers, to glass and metal fabricators, to residential window and door manufacturers and dealers.
AAMA will present "Window Safety is Everyone's Responsibility." Falls from a window can result in serious injury or death, especially for children. I'll take the stage to share what you can do as a manufacturer or dealer to spread awareness about this important safety issue. Everyone is welcome to attend this session on Wednesday, October 19 at 2:00 p.m. in booth 213. Stop by after the presentation to learn more. We'll be right across from the Express Learning area.
Window & Door Dealer Days
The Window & Door Dealers Alliance (WDDA) will host its second annual Window & Door Dealer Days October 19–20 during the show. Providing a unique venue for owners and top management of retail window and door businesses to see the latest fenestration products, this year the event will be hosted in The Dream Showroom. Register today to: learn about current market conditions and best business practices; meet and network with industry peers and vendors; and connect with the right solutions to help make their businesses more profitable.

My favorite part of any industry event is seeing all of you! Stop by our booth to say Hi!, or we can pop over to Starbucks...your choice on the flavor of latte. Of course, I recommend pumpkin spice!
