NFRC Exhibiting at AIA Show in New Orleans -- May 12-14

Representatives from the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) will be exhibiting during the American Institute of Architects (AIA) 2011 National Convention and Design Exposition at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, Thursday, May 12 - Saturday, May 14.

The AIA has chosen the theme, “Regional Design Revolution: Ecology Matters” for the convention. According to the AIA Website, this theme was chosen with a single goal in mind: to gather the resources needed to strengthen industry practices to better serve our communities.

The AIA estimates there will be 800 exhibitors on the show floor.

Educational Opportunities

During the convention, there will be 130 continuing education seminars and Design Salons where attendees can engage with presenters, participate in discussions, and make their voices heard.

Additionally, the AIA New Orleans chapter is extending the learning opportunities beyond the convention center. The chapter will host a variety of educational tours that explore the city’s architecture—from historic and modern to recently restored.

Convention Hours

The exhibit hall will be open from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 12 and Friday, May 13. It will also be open from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 14.

If you are attending the AIA convention, be sure to visit NFRC at booth #219. We look forward to answering your questions about our activities and programs.
