NWDA Hosts Successful Winter Meeting!

Over 70 key decision makers from window and door manufacturer and supplier firms participated in the annual 2-day Winter Meeting, held January 12-13, 2015 at Foxwoods Resort & Casino in Mashantucket, CT. The productive and enjoyable conference featured informative industry speakers, tabletop supplier displays and a special "speed networking" reception event.

The Winter Meeting educational sessions offered on the second day were well received for their value and timeliness. James Lang of WTS Paradigm provided a thought-provoking, future-focused presentation on the concept of "Big Data" and its potential value to the fenestration industry. Brad Boone of PPG offered insights as to the current national concerns over float glass production capacity, pricing, transportation challenges and how best for manufacturers and glass suppliers to work together in 2015 in his presentation. Other presentations included Kevin Koonce of the Vinyl Building Council and Joe Reed of ATI.

In keeping with recent NWDA conferences, the first day's evening reception featured speed networking sessions between the tabletop supplier exhibitors and the manufacturer attendees.  In a fashion similar to a speed dating forum, suppliers moved from table to table at timed intervals to meeting a manufacturer, thereby assuring everyone met each other in an effective and extremely efficient process.

Following the speed networking reception, attendees descended to Foxwoods High Rollers luxury bowling facility. Awaiting them in the exclusive event area were six dedicated lanes, pool table and a private cocktail bar with plentiful hors d'oeuvres.  The fun evening networking spurred some spirited but friendly competition with prizes awarded for both the highest and lowest bowling scores.
