Glass Expo Midwest™ 2010 to Include Panel Discussion on BIPV
February 2, 2010

Glass Expo Midwest™ 2010 is set to take place March 16-17 at the Renaissance Schaumburg Hotel & Convention Center in Schaumburg, Ill., a suburb of Chicago. In addition to a trade show and numerous networking opportunities, this year's event also offers a top-notch educational and seminar program. Presenters will be discussing several timely, important topics for the architectural glass industry.

Included in the seminar line-up will be a discussion of a topic that is becoming increasingly important to the glass industry: building integrated photovoltaics (BIPV). The panel session, titled "BIPV: Challenges and Opportunities for the Contract Glazier" will take place from 12:30-1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 16, and a number of industry experts will take part in the panel, including Russ Huffer, chief executive officer of Apogee Enterprises.

Panelists will discuss the benefits and challenges of BIPV as it relates to the contract glazing industry. Huffer, whose company has spent millions researching this new technology and how it fits into a curtainwall system, will offer a no-nonsense look at BIPV and what he has learned after 20 years of research-an important issue of which the industry needs to be aware.
