Offering the latest developments and products for the fenestration industry, Win-door is once again set to take place in Toronto at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, South Building, November 2-4 (see schedule on page 93). Organized by the Canadian Window and Door Manufactures Association (CWDMA), the theme for this year’s Win-door Show is “Learn Today. Profit Tomorrow.” More than 150 exhibitors will be on hand offering a wide selection of products and services, including computer hardware, software, doors, doorlites, hardware, machinery, sealants, testing services and much more. Show organizers expect more than 4,000 attendees to come from across Canada, the United States and other countries to take part in this annual event.
