NWDA 2014 Winter Meeting a Big Hit with Attendees

Over 80 key executives from window and door manufacturers and suppliers enjoyed two days of education, industry information, collective brainstorming and business networking at the recent meeting at Foxwoods Resort and Casino in Mashantucket, CT on January 27-28, 2014.

During the opening reception, the traditional tabletop supplier exhibits were enhanced through the use of a Speed Networking session.  In a fashion similar to a speed dating forum, all manufacturers and exhibitors were ensured of meeting everyone in an extremely timely manner.

Following the reception, attendees were treated to some friendly competition at High Rollers, the resort’s luxury bowling facility.  No matter the score, a fun entertaining evening was had by all. See the pictures below.

Another new feature to the meeting was a roundtable discussion over breakfast where a facilitator, speaker Jim Reeb of the Manufacturing Institute, circulated amongst the tables, challenging the gathering to enumerate common industry challenges and collectively “brainstorm” possible solutions to those problems.  Some fenestration industry issues raised included glass costs, increasing regulations, employee healthcare insurance changes, and window testing requirements and expenses.

The successful meeting continued through the day with speakers listed below.
