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.
