Al Dueck is clearly a man who is willing to work his posterior off for the good of his business community.

Feb. 13, 2017 - Al Dueck is clearly a man who is willing to work his posterior off for the good of his business community. As chairman of FenCon17 – the fenestration industry conference he imagined, sold, organized and hosted on Feb. 10 with the help of his friends at Fenestration Manitoba – Dueck created a day packed wall-to-wall with fresh, exclusive education and networking opportunities aimed squarely at window and door manufacturers. One wonders just how many phone calls he made to attract the all-star presenters and the healthy crowd of over 140 attendees, but it seems safe to assume that everyone in the room was contacted more than once. Thanks to the organizing talents of Nancy Zubriski, Fenestration Manitoba executive director, the result was a polished event that remained friendly and accessible. It isn't hard to imagine FenCon becoming an important recurring forum drawing visitors from all over the country.

Taking WinDoor to Montreal involved an element of risk for Fenestration Canada, no question. The show had become Canada's premier destination for the window and door industry over 22 years in downtown Toronto, and moving it risked losing participation from the large concentration of fenestration companies in southern Ontario. But everyone agreed that the formula that had been so successful had gotten tired and it was time for change. There is no growth in business without risk, and WinDoor's debut in Quebec proved that bold moves combined with expert planning, energetic leadership and a clear vision can indeed give new life to a venerable brand.
Nov. 10, 2016 - At WinDoor, you have the perfect opportunity to see new products, meet new customers and catch up with your peers. You can also participate in our various social functions including the After Hours Party on Wednesday, November 16! Please note that Doors Open on Montreal is sold out.
