Events & Shows
The Canadian WinDoor conference and show plays an important role in our industry and deserves our support. This is particularly true with the strong winds of change we currently face, such as evolving technology and the demand on all of us to better respond to environmental pressures.
WinDoor Quebec City will feature some exciting new technology
WinDoor 2018, happening Dec. 4 and 5 in Quebec City, will include for the first time a slate of commercial education sessions and exhibits. One of these will be "A Window to the Canadian codes and fire safety regulations" presented by Amal Tamim and Marc-Andre Langevin of Technorm.
As part of its outreach to the commercial glass fabrication sector, WinDoor, happening Dec. 4 and 5 in Quebec City, will feature a bilingual presentation by Mathieu Massicotte of Edgehog detailing his Montreal startup's efforts to commercialize a nanoetching process that renders glass non-reflective and water-repellent. The process is described in the latest issue of Glass Canada magazine.
The website for FenCon19, coming March 6 and 7 to the RBC Convention Centre in Winnipeg, is live with online registration available. The event hosted by Fenestration Manitoba welcomes window and door fabricators from across country for superior education and networking opportunities.
WinDoor 2018, taking place Dec. 4 and 5 in Quebec City, will celebrate a few firsts. It's the first time Canada's trade show for the window and door manufacturing industry will be held in Quebec City, following up a successful event in Montreal two years ago. And for the first time there will be an added focus on the architectural glazing side of the market, with exhibits and education sessions aimed at those who specialize in curtainwall, storefront and custom aluminum fenestration for commercial, institutional, industrial and high-rise residential facade construction. 
A breakfast networking gathering organized by Cam Drew of Thermoproof and Fenestration Manitoba achieved some level of expected success as about 20 to 25 people showed up despite some trouble with the hosting restaurant. On behalf of the organizers, our apologies and next year would have to be a better, more accommodating location.
Fenestration Manitoba is organizing an informal networking breakfast for Canadian window and door professionals attending GlassBuild, Sept. 12 to 14 in Las Vegas. The event is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. at the West Gate Resort Dining Side Cafe on Thursday, Sept. 13. The event is free and open to anyone working in the fenestration industry in Canada. Fenestration Review magazine is proudly partnering with FenMan to promote the event.
July 10, 2018 - In the on-going process of building a world class conference focused on window and door manufacturing, conference management has again secured an outstanding keynote speaker – Billy Taylor.
I recently had to make a decision: do I travel to Winnipeg or to Calgary? It certainly wasn’t an easy decision either. In Calgary, the Fenestration Canada 2018 Spring Conference was taking place. In Winnipeg, Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters (CME) was hosting the 2018 Canadian Lean Conference.
It's a weird time to be an employer. Smoking weed at work may no longer be something you can complain about. Make a bad joke and you might find yourself on the pointy end of a lawsuit. Fenestration Manitoba will provide expert advice on these and other growing labour-relations issues at an industry seminar May 30 at the Norwood Hotel in Winnipeg.
FenCon19 organizers have announced the date and venue for next years' conference for the window and door industry. The event will take place in downtown Winnipeg at the Winnipeg Convention Center on March 6 and 7. The location is close to the popular Exchange District, the Forks and the Canadian Museum for Human Rights.
Apr. 20, 2018 - Registration for this year's GlassBuild America: The Glass, Window & Door Expo, is now open!
One reason to go to industry events is to get a sense of the issues and trends concerning your fellow window and door people, and FenCon18 in Winnipeg last week certainly provided that. Disruptive technology, continuous improvement, product standards and labour challenges are top-of-mind for owners and mangers in our industry today, if the presentations and discussions around the conference were any indication.
The Fenestra purchasing co-op has come a long way from its beginnings as a small group of fabricators – convened initially by Kevin Pelley of Kohltech and George Warren of Centennial Windows – getting together in 2010 to select a group of preferred suppliers.
