Meetings & Events

About 30,000 industry professionals will gather in Shanghai beginning November 14 for the fifth edition of Fenestration China, now said to be the largest window, door, skylight and curtainwall trade show in Asia. For the first time, this year’s event will feature a U.S. pavilion led by the U.S. Department of Energy and the National Fenestration Rating Council.

U.S.-based window industry exhibitors scheduled to participate include Allmetal Inc., Edgetech I.G. Inc., Schnee-Morehead and Solutia. Johnson Window Films and Madico, two suppliers of window film, will also be on hand.

The U.S. DOE and NFRC will present a forum on advanced design and research concepts for China’s domestic door and window manufacturers and designers during the Fenestration Days China conference, which will be held in conjunction with the show. The program is designed to strengthen communication between Chinese and U.S. manufacturers and provide better understanding in the arena of “energy saving, environmental protecting” products.

International participation has steadily grown over the past four editions of Fenestration China. This year’s list of global window and door industry suppliers includes Amesbury, Azon, Elumatec, Rehau, Sika, Veka, Urban, Michael Weinig and Winkhaus. Helping to encourage more international participation is a new strategic cooperative alliance established between fensterbau/frontale and Fenestration China to jointly promote exhibitions, conferences and activities sponsored by both parties worldwide. Under the plan, organizers of the two shows will work to bring a large group of exhibitors coming from both Germany and China to participate in each trade fair.

Running from November 14-17 at the Shanghai Everbright Convention & Exhibition Center, Fenestration China 2007 is sponsored by the China Construction Metal Structure Association and EuroWindoor, the consortium of European window and door associations. The event is organized by CIEC Exhibition Co. Ltd., and co-organized by Nürnberg Global Fairs GmbH, which also organizes fensterbau.
