It’s been a busy couple of weeks, but now that we are back and fully refreshed from the long Independence Day weekend, we’d like to share some of our thoughts and observations from the American Institute of Architects’ National Convention that was held in Chicago in late June.
Overall, the show was a success. There were over 20,000 attendees, and we were one of roughly 800 exhibitors. The show offered seemingly endless continuing education opportunities for attendees, and unfortunately, that meant they had less time to visit booths. Exhibit hall traffic seemed rather sporadic and light at times.
That being said, we did make excellent connections. A number of architects said we were on their must-see list and they specifically sought us out. We also met with at least a dozen window manufacturers who were interested in adding Suntuitive glass to their product offerings. All of our visitors seemed more knowledgeable about Suntuitive glass compared to previous years, and they asked more specific questions with regards to installation, performance, and how it compares to other dynamic glass products. We answered a lot of questions about where people can buy Suntuitive glass, too.
We didn’t have a lot of down time in the Windy City, but we did get to visit the Cloud Gate sculpture and enjoy some deep-dish pizza. Some of us are making plans to go back so that we can spend more time being tourists. There’s a lot to see!
