NGA Welcomes EDTM as Sponsor of Both Forums at 2012 GlassBuild America Expo

WASHINGTON, DC (September 6, 2012)—The National Glass Association announced today that EDTM will sponsor both the 7th Annual Glazing Executives Forum (GEF) and 3rd Annual Window & Door Dealers Forum at the 2012 GlassBuild America Expo next week in Las Vegas.

"Being one of the leading suppliers of glass and window test equipment, we know how helpful a valuable tool can be to the glazing and window industry. These forums offer a similar “valuable tool” in that they allow fellow members to gather and exchange ideas that will benefit the industry as a whole. As a regular exhibitor at the GlassBuild America Show, EDTM knows how important it is to attend the event so you can stay abreast of the latest product offerings and ideas. We regularly target the GBA Show for new product launches, because the audience expects to see something new each year. The forums provide that same opportunity for learning the latest and greatest techniques." remarked Mark Imbrock, Vice President, EDTM, Inc.

The NGA's 7th Annual Glazing Executives Forum, presented by the NGA Architectural Glazing Committee and held in conjunction with GlassBuild America: The Glass, Window, and Door Expo®, will take place on Thursday, September 13, at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The program was created by and for owners, presidents, CEOs and senior managers in the North American glazing and architectural glass industry to help build enduring relationships and to provide a collegial forum for collaboration on common challenges.

The 3rd Annual Window & Door Dealers Forum is the premier networking opportunity for independent dealers. The day-long program for leaders of the window and door dealer industry features dynamic and informative speakers, peer-to-peer sharing, and fresh updates on challenging topics impacting the industry.

"EDTM is proud to be a part of the NGA and excited to support both forums. We have partnered with many of our fellow members to solve common challenges that arise with the newer diversity of technologies and coatings, as well as provide dynamic tools to promote energy efficient windows." furthers states ImBrock.

"EDTM’s commitment to both of our outstanding Forums is indicative of their industry leadership and corporate focus on continuous improvement," noted David Walker, Vice President at the National Glass Association. "We’re pleased that they are taking such an active and high-profile role at GlassBuild America, and we look forward to their engagement in each of these events."
