Demonstrations – New for 2017

There are TWO booths that will be set aside for two companies that would like to do a more formal 15-minute demonstration of their product. The demonstrations will be done during the break between the first and second Seminar.

Demonstration 1  
The DuPont™ Tyvek® team will demonstrate the installation and proper flashing details of a flanged window installed on wood bucks to accommodate for continuous insulation, according to ASTM E2112.  ASTM E2112 is the national standard for properly integrating a mechanically fastened WRB, a flanged window and self-adhered flashing.  The team will also demonstrate an easy way to flash penetrations of all shapes to ensure that the weather barrier system remains continuous and effective.
Presenter: DuPont Tyvek



Exhibitor Information:

The Concept 
Entrance to the two afternoon educational seminars, demos and the product exhibition is open to everyone. However, attendance to the evening dinner is by your invitation only. As an exhibitor, your booth fee will entitle you to personally invite and host three design/industry professionals, as your guests for the evening dinner. The booth fee includes one dinner ticket for you plus three dinner tickets for your invited guests.If you wish to include your co-workers, please purchase additional dinner tickets so that we may maximize the number of invited professionals at our event.
This concept allows you, the exhibitor, to control the quantity and quality of attendees. It also allows you the opportunity to cultivate some meaningful relationships with a few hand-chosen guests. CSI Nebraska will be promoting the event to the local metro area architectural community. 
We know some exhibitors from out of town need help with names of guests to invite so if the local vendors will forward any extra names to me I will get them set upwith someone.
