CONTECH will make its return at METALCON 2020! To help us better serve you, please complete this 5-minute TECHNOLOGY SURVEY.


Registration will open soon. In addition to exhibits, education sessions and CONTECH, this year’s show will offer two NEW programs including “The Architect’s Experience” and “Connect! The Women’s A/E/C Network.”

The Architect’s Experience – To ensure that metal is on every architect and designers’ pallet, METALCON is launching this new program. This exclusive and unique experience is designed specifically for architects and designers. It will provide a combination of education — provided by two leading A/E/C/ educators — and a unique exhibit floor experience. Architects and designers will learn-about and see first-hand, the beauty and durability of metal.

CONNECT! The Women’s A/E/C Network at METALCON – With women making up just 9.9% of the U.S. construction workforce (Source: NAWIC), our future success relies on working together to advance women in the A/E/C industry. On Tuesday, October 20th, (the day before METALCON officially opens), leaders from industry women’s associations and special guests will come together to help create change, drive diversity, ensure equality and influence the industry.  We invite women and mento join this afternoon of learning, conversation and networking.
