Registration is now open for the 2023 Fenestration and Glazing Industry Alliance (FGIA) Annual Conference to be held Feb. 13-16 in Coronado, Calif. The preliminary schedule will be released the week of Jan. 9 and will include a variety of presentations, panel discussions and hands-on demonstrations. Numerous committees, councils and task groups will also have an opportunity to meet. Register now for the in-person experience or for virtual access to the FGIA Annual Conference. Early bird registration rates are available through Jan. 6, with an extended early bird rate available through Jan. 20.
Share the Love
This conference’s theme will be “Share the Love” in recognition of the Valentine’s Day holiday taking place that week. With that theme in mind, in-person event participants are asked to wear cocktail attire (with a nod to what the individual wearing it loves) to the FGIA Annual Conference Awards Banquet the evening of Feb. 14. This could mean a favorite formal-wear item, or it could be interpreted more non-conventionally.
“FGIA is ready to celebrate Valentine’s Day with a love-themed banquet in a beautiful setting,” says Florica Vlad, FGIA meetings manager. “This conference will be a wonderful getaway featuring the best of both worlds – participants can focus on important industry work during the day and enjoy Coronado at night. Share the love this February at the Annual Conference and register now.”
In addition to the annual FGIA Rich and Diane Walker Cup golf tournament, there will be a unique opportunity for participants to take a tour of a seismic shake test at the University of California San Diego (UCSD). Space is limited, as only 50 participants will be able to visit the site of a groundbreaking industry seismic test located on the north side of San Diego. UCSD operates the Natural Hazards Engineering Research Infrastructure NHERI@UCSD Large High-Performance Outdoor Shake Table (LHPOST6) under the National Science Foundation (NSF) funded NHERI program. The NHERI TallWood project, also funded by NSF and led by a consortium of university and industry partners, will feature shake table testing of a full-scale resilient 10-story mass-timber building.
