FGIA Releases 2021 Conference Schedule
January 11, 2021
The Fenestration and Glazing Industry Alliance formalized its 2021 conference schedule, beginning with the FGIA 2021 Virtual Annual Conference. Online registration for the event to be held Feb. 23-25 will open in mid-January. Additionally, at this time, FGIA has decided to host its Summer Conference virtually.
FGIA 2021 Events
• FGIA Virtual Annual Conference: Feb. 23-25
• FGIA Virtual Summer Conference: June 22-24
• FGIA Fall Conference: Oct. 18-21, Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass, Phoenix, Arizona
"Although COVID-19 vaccines are beginning to be distributed, the Summer Conference was intended to be held in Vancouver―adding the complication of the unknown status of the U.S./Canadian border, which was certainly a factor in this early decision," says Janice Yglesias, FGIA executive director. "Additionally, through FGIA surveys and conversations with our members, indications are that, while travel critical to supporting customers is currently permitted on a limited basis, outside of those parameters, it's unlikely that other travel will be permitted until at least the second half of the year. Therefore, FGIA will continue to provide high-quality industry content in an online format, while keeping our members' safety our highest priority."
"It is FGIA's expectation and greatest hope to be able to host our Fall Conference in person later in 2021," says Yglesias. "We are eager to return to in-person events and are looking forward to seeing our members face-to-face as soon as it is safe to do so."
