In recent spurt of activities in the uPVC sector of Indian fenestration industry, the uPVC Window and Door Manufacturers Association (UWDMA) embarked upon a nationwide spree of member enrolment in view of extending and establishing presence of the association throughout the country. In one such drive, UWDMA’s southern chapter organized two separate events in Chennai and Bangalore on 28th and 30th August respectively. The core agenda of the event was to spread awareness about the role of UWDMA in the industry.

The Chennai Event was hosted at Zak Expo &Convention Centre in uptown Alwarpet and was sponsored by Deceunick.Similarly,in Bangalore the event was held in Hotel Palms Avenue sponsored by Torfenster.
For both the events, welcome tea at the registration desk marked the beginning of the event followed by the key note speech. Further, the recap and updating on the past events of UWDMA was done. Then the draft of the long term Mission 2020 of UWDMA was shared with the members which primarily entails 3 points –
