Registration Open For Networking Events During FGIA Fall Conference

Registration is now open for several networking opportunities taking place during the upcoming Fenestration and Glazing Industry Alliance 2022 Hybrid Fall Conference, including an architecture riverboat tour, a sunset dinner cruise, and the FGIA Product Showcase. The conference will be held Sept. 25 through 28 in Chicago and will have an in-person and virtual option. 

"As this event gets closer, FGIA staff gets more excited to share what to expect this fall in Chicago," says Florica Vlad, FGIA meetings manager. "With two opportunities to view the Windy City from the Chicago River, you can't miss this chance to experience this great American city from a completely new perspective. Get on board to network and make some memories, and bring your Chicago spirit."

Event Information

The architecture riverboat tour on the Chicago River will be departing on Sunday, Sept. 25. This architecture riverboat cruise features stories behind more than 50 buildings along the Chicago River, giving an overview of Chicago's architecture and its history. Participants on this 90-minute tour will hear how Chicago grew from a small settlement into one of the world's largest cities in the span of less than 100 years. The boat cruise fee is $49 per person, including tax and gratuity.

The Chicago Spirit Sunset Dinner Cruise is a three-hour dinner cruise on the evening of Monday, Sept. 26. It will feature a cocktail hour and souvenir photo. Participants are encouraged to wear Chicago fanwear of their favorite sports teams or other Chicago-related attire, in keeping with the event theme: "Set Sail through the Windy City." Transportation will be provided from the conference hotel to Navy Pier to board the boat. The buffet menu will include a variety of foods to accommodate dietary restrictions. The cruise is included in the cost of conference registration.
