With only three (business) days to go until we officially open METALCON 2019, here are some exciting show updates regarding the CONTECH technology hub, conference schedule and the METALCON APP. METALCON 2019 is taking place in the “Steel City” of Pittsburgh next week, October 16-19, 2019!


We are excited to announce that technology companies, Dronegenuity and Felux, have been added to further enhance this new feature at METALCON.

Dronegenuity offers aerial drone services for construction firms. Aerial drone photos and videos are excellent tools for monitoring progress on a consistent basis, getting a detailed overview of your project, and highlighting your completed work.

Felux is the fastest growing steel procurement software in North America. Over 200 companies are realizing the power of integrating digital solutions into their procurement process. Users save time with automated and streamlined processes and save money with supply chain transparency and quote/market analytics. Representatives with Felux will present some of their site functionality in a session in the CONTECH area on Wednesday, October 16 from 2:45 pm – 3:00 pm.

CONTECH, sponsored by United States Steel, is a new area of the METALCON show floor and will showcase the latest in construction technology. CONTECH will also offer daily 30-minute education sessions with demonstrations of the various technology products. To stay ahead of the curve in the industry, this is a MUST visit while at the show.


There have been several new educational sessions added to the overall Conference Schedule. Check out the Schedule At-A-Glance and create your daily schedule while at the show. Keynote Addresses, General Sessions and Panel Discussions will take place in the PPG Theatre located on the show floor, straight back from Registration down the “Power Aisle.” The two Learning Centers will offer “bite-size” education sessions on Wednesday and Thursday only. Track #1947 will feature 20-30 minute sessions on business strategies and how to get the most out of your business. Track #2033 will offer sessions on more technical topics pertaining to metal products and applications.
