NGA 2020 annual conference

San Diego is a beautiful destination, but from 13 to 15 january it’s “the destination” for everyone in the glass industry: in San Diego there is the NGA 2020 Annual Conference!

The conference is a precious opportunity to help define industry standards and create expertise that advances the use of architectural glass; a privileged point of view on glass technology trends, and a great occasion to develop new resources and ideas.

For us, at Mappi, Fall Conference is more exciting than usual, because we have the pleasure to be sponsor.
