NIA’s meetings and events are designed to meet the needs of our members and provide valuable networking opportunities, educational programming, and the chance to be involved in industry issues and planning. Our primary meetings take place at NIA’s Annual Convention and the Fall Summit. For more information on all of our meetings and educational programming, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
NIA’s Annual Convention is the premier event for the insulation industry and attracts attendees from all industry segments. Held each spring, this event is open to both NIA members and non-members, and attendees at this event learn the latest industry trends, gain new business contacts, network, and build relationships. NIA’s Silent Auction is held biennially at this event.
NIA’s Fall Summit is a members-only meeting and is designed to “Educate, Engage, Elevate.” This meeting allows attendees to focus on the business of the industry and discuss the latest industry issues from a peer-to-peer national perspective. It is held biennially with Reed Exhibitions’ Insulation Expo (IEX) USA trade show.
NIA’s Insulation Energy Appraisal Program (IEAP) is a 2-day professional certification course that instructs students to determine the optimal insulation thickness and corresponding energy and dollar savings for a project.
While not an NIA event, the Insulation Expo (IEX) USA Trade Show, a Reed Exhibitions event, is held biennially at the same location as NIA’s annual members-only Fall Summit. The Insulation Expo (IEX) USA Trade Show is the first North American trade show for the mechanical insulation industry. Reed Exhibitions' goal is to provide an audience of engineers, facility operators, plant/building managers, specifiers, and architects for their exhibitors. NIA is excited to promote the trade show and bring more attention to the insulation industry and its members who choose to exhibit at IEX USA.
IEX USA and NIA’s Fall Summit is taking place September 12–13, 2017 at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, Texas.
