Glass Expo Midwest Seminars to Focus on a Range of Industry Topics
February 23, 2010

A top-notch seminar line-up is being offered as part of Glass Expo Midwest™ 2010, which will take place March 16-17 at the Renaissance Schaumburg Hotel & Convention Center in suburban Chicago. In addition to sessions geared specifically for the architectural glass industry, the event this year will also include a special session open to both architectural and automotive attendees.

Taking place Tuesday, March 16, Marilyn Moats Kennedy of Career Strategies and author of Office Politics: Seizing Power/Wielding Clout, will present to all attendees her session titled "Learn How to Manage All Ages - From Youth to Golden Agers." The presentation will take place from 1:30 - 3:00 p.m. and will educate attendees regarding the five age groups in the workplace, their traditional values and their differing views on the role of managers, employer/employee loyalty, etc. Attendees will learn ways of communicating that deliver the same message in ways that each group understands and responds to.

In addition, as part of the architectural track attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about building information modeling (BIM), during a session that will take place from 8:30 - 9:30 a.m. on March 17.

In recent years, BIM has become a continuing trend for the contract glazing industry, as more and more architects are using 3D modeling software to allow planners, designers, manufacturers, contractors, glazing subcontractors and owners to work from the same object-related database. This session will focus on where BIM is headed and exactly what it means for the glass industry.
