The Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance (IGMA) announced that as of Wednesday, only four spots remain open its upcoming Insulating Glass (IG) Fabrication Workshop, to be held May 3-5 in Plano, Texas, at the Intertek (ATI) testing facilities.

The event features several hands-on sessions with industry leaders using actual testing equipment, illustrating the differences between successful units and those that fail, as well as a deeper look at the fundamental philosophy of making successful and efficient IG units.

“There are two major trends affecting the fenestration industry today,” says Margaret Webb, IGMA’s executive director. “The first trend is major turnover in plant personnel as baby boomers retire, taking with them a wealth of knowledge and experience in the fabrication of insulating glass just when that expertise is needed the most. Secondly, this is going on at a time when architects and engineers are upping the game on building envelope design with unusual aesthetics and improved thermal performance. This workshop is taught by industry experts who know their stuff and are willing to share their expertise and knowledge with Gen X, Gen Y and Millennials, ensuring that this expertise gets passed on.”

Registration for the three-day event is $950 for the first attendee from a company, and 10 percent off ($855) for each additional attendee.
