Free Symposium on Protective Glazing Technology Scheduled for Chicago

The Protective Glazing Council (PGC) has announced that its Spring Symposium, scheduled for March 15-16, 2006 at the Holiday Inn City Centre in downtown Chicago, will offer free registration to architects, building owners, government officials and glazing contractors who do not manufacture or supply goods and services for the protective glazing industry.

Manufacturers, suppliers and consultants to the industry may attend for a nominal registration fee. The symposium will focus on the various film and glazing options available to architects and glazing contractors working jobs which require some level of protection from blast, bullet and ballistics, windborne debris and other hazards.

"By offering this two-day symposium, our goal is to help educate architects and glazing contractors on the many options available for use today," explained Brian Pitman, director of marketing and communications for PGC. "As these technologies become more prevalent with more jobs specifying them, PGC felt it was important to offer this valuable education to the widest possible audience."

Pre-registration is required for free attendance. Those wishing to attend may register on the PGC website at
