About the Fall Summit

NIA’s Fall Summit is an annual members-only event that includes topical speakers, open committee meetings, tailored industry sessions, and networking opportunities to develop new business relationships. Fall Summit is designed to “Educate, Engage, and Elevate,” by providing actionable content for attendees that companies can implement to improve their businesses.

NIA’s Fall Summit offers members:

  • Convenience—All Fall Summit and IEX USA events take place at one location with easy access to 3 airports. The Fall Summit hotel, the brand new Marriott Marquis, is connected via Sky Bridge to the George R. Brown Convention Center.
  • Flexibility—Minimizing members’ time out of the office is a priority, so all events take place over a 2-day period with dedicated time to attend Fall Summit events and participate in the IEX USA trade show.
  • Value—15 hours of education, 2 breakfasts, 2 networking receptions, and complimentary access to IEX USA and the Turbomachinery & Pump Symposia (TPS) trade show floors are included in the affordable registration rate. Additional multiple-registrant discounts are available.

Customize Your Week
The Fall Summit schedule is planned to make the most efficient use of your time away from your business. By combining the Fall Summit with additional programs, NIA is offering a week-long opportunity for education, training, and networking.

  • September 11: Bonus pre-Fall Summit training sessions and Networking Reception
  • September 12–13: NIA’s Fall Summit and Reed Exhibitions’ IEX USA trade show
  • September 13–14: NIA’s Insulation Energy Appraisal Program (IEAP) training course (members receive discounts for registering for both the Fall Summit and the IEAP class)

In 2017, Fall Summit is co-located with Reed Exhibitions’ Insulation Expo (IEX) USA, the North American trade show for the mechanical insulation industry. NIA’s Fall Summit registration includes unlimited access to IEX USA during show hours. IEX USA exhibitors will include insulation manufacturers, distributors, fabricators, and contractors. Attendees will consist of mechanical insulation end users such as engineers, specifiers, plant managers, architects, contractors, building inspectors, and code officials representing the commercial, industrial, and manufacturing sectors. IEX USA is a biennial event, and the next trade show after 2017 will take place in 2019. Don’t miss out! Learn more about IEX USA >>
