METALCON and the Hall of Fame


On October 9, the metal construction industry will gather at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Ill., for METALCON International 2012. For architects, contractors, building owners and suppliers interested in the metal construction industry, this is the most important gathering of the year.

The convention lasts for three days and is a vibrant mix of educational opportunities, new product demonstrations and show floor activity, as well as a chance to network with your peers in the industry.

This year, METALCON has revamped its educational program to allow attendees deeper access to more information. Many, of course, are available for continuing education credits.

But the education doesn't stop in the seminar rooms. The Solar Bay, back by popular demand, provides up-to-date information about the booming business of solar installation, which has a special affinity for working with metal roofs. Don't miss out on this great opportunity to expand your business and learn more about the future of solar and metal roofs.

Also on the show floor, hundreds of products' booths that offer show attendees a great chance to find new products and learn more about existing products. Packed even further, the floor offers more demonstrations on metal wall installation, tool demos and both residential and commercial roofing installations.

But the best thing about any trade show is the people. Don't miss this chance to learn from your peers. Why beat your head against doors that others have already figured out how to open?
