FMA Congresses and Solatube are Drawing Daylight into Every Imaginable Sustainable Design Project
'We usually do trade shows with thousands of people and don't get a chance to spend one-on-one time' said Sather. 'With this show, the interaction is more focused, people are higher-level decision-makers and it's been pretty positive.'

MONTREAL, Sept. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Imagine a building in which sunlight could be captured and utilized in the most unexpected and never-before-seen places. Imagine the "World's First Green Olympics." Imagine employees who are happier, more productive, healthier and less prone to accidents. All are reality, thanks to Solatube International's tubular Daylighting Devices, which use state-of-the-art design to provide superior performance and efficiency to every daylighting application imaginable.
Solatube is the worldwide leader in tubular daylighting devices, which notably provided 148 of its systems to the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, helping architects meet their aesthetic, functional and environmental goals for the global sporting event.
Solatube systems can eliminate artificial lighting by 90 percent, which is not only an energy efficiency consideration, but there is a holistic payback in human productivity and health, with studies showing that daylight improves both dramatically. It's also obviously green.
"It's the most green feature that can be added to a building," says Michael Sather, Account Manager, Commercial Division. "A company's lighting choice sends a clear message to employees as well as customers."
Solatube's innovative systems have daylight dimmers that control the amount of light coming into a room. It is also a better quality light, as it is the same color "temperature" (or rendition) as the light outside. Because of its many benefits, there are invariably a lot of questions that come from people learning about the products for the first time, as was the case at the FMA Congress event in August.
"We usually do trade shows with thousands of people and don't get a chance to spend one-on-one time," said Sather. "With this show, the interaction is more focused, people are higher-level decision-makers and it's been pretty positive."
Sather specifically appreciated the Q&A session that they were able to have with the audience, where attendees had the opportunity to get very specific about their needs. He would recommend Solatube participating in future FMA shows and looks forward to following up on the leads obtained in Chicago.
