CORNING, NY--(Marketwired - Mar 11, 2014) -  Corning Incorporated (NYSE: GLW) today announced its nationwide seminar series entitled, "How the Building Industry can Profit from Forward-Looking Connectivity Strategies," which will take place in March, April and May in 14 cities around the country. The seminar series will focus on wireless technology in the real estate market and is a joint presentation from Corning and RF Connect LLC.

"The series will focus on the current wired and wireless infrastructure landscape and how developers can prepare for -- and profit from -- current and future needs of property owners and tenants."
