The fenestration industry’s Win-door North America 2015, Nov. 3, 4 and 5, will move to a new exhibit hall and floor plan at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, South Building, Hall D.
New show hours have been announced too. Geared to helping attendees get the most out of their time at Win-door, the show will open on Tuesday, Nov. 3 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., then runs Wednesday, Nov. 4 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Thursday, Nov. 5 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The floor plan has been revised to give attendees more time to talk to exhibitors, private places to stop and do business and more prominent locations for the Education Pavilion and the New Product Showcase.
“Win-door 2015 will be the same great value you’ve come to expect,” said a show spokesperson. There’ll be free parking and free lunches. And, for exhibitors, free materials handling, free drayage and more. What other show gives you so much?”
“Win-door delivers a powerful, qualified audience of window and door manufacturers from across North America,” the show representative said. “Visitors come for a first look at the newest products, to get the latest information and to experience tomorrow’s trends.”
“Win-door is where they can spec’ out new suppliers, stay abreast of industry changes and make buying decisions.”
Keynote speaker Michael “Pinball” Clemmons will kick off the show on opening day.
Clemens, The Toronto Argo’s vice-chair, exemplifies the qualities of personal excellence, teamwork, community leadership and overcoming the odds. He started playing with the Argos in 1989, achieving a remarkable 12-year career in the CFL, before going on to coach the team.
This summer, Clemons will serve as the “official quarterback” of the volunteer team at the TO2015 Pan Am and Parapan Am Games.
“Win-door 2015 will deliver all the great features that have made this show such an enduring success for the fenestration industry,” the show spokesperson said.
The best value in learning is the Win-door Education Pavilion, he said. There, visitors can attend important Fenestration Canada education sessions on the latest code changes and regulations, energy programs and more.
The Exhibitor Space Sales brochure and application forms were mailed out recently and exhibitors are quickly responding to claim their space. Attendee registration will open Sept. 1.
Special hotel rates have been negotiated and details about parking, “Things To Do” in Toronto and other information is available at www.windoorshow.com.
