METALCON 2019 truly shined in the “Steel City” as it wrapped up its 29th year! With only three hours on the final day, attendees made their final visits with exhibitors and made time for the show’s newest feature, CONTECH.
CONTECH was buzzing with attendees checking out the latest in construction technology. Premier sponsor, United States Steel, gave a presentation at 11:00 am on their “Construction Portfolio,” and Solution Huddle presented on the “Fundamentals of Modernizing your Customer Experience” at 11:30 am.
As the show wrapped up, two additional prizes were raffled off including original artwork by photographer J.P. Diroll (inspiration for this year’s show graphics) and the grand prize drawing for a trip to Las Vegas including 3-night accommodation at the Westgate Resort and Casino, limo airport transfer, show tickets and a $400 food and beverage credit. Congratulations to ALL of the winners throughout the show and thanks to all who gave this year to METALCON’s annual fundraising campaign. With your generous support, we presented a check in the amount of $8000 to the Veterans Leadership Program of Western Pennsylvania.
Mark your calendars for METALCON’s 30th Anniversary in Las Vegas, October 21-23, 2020!
On a more personal note, this show marked the last for vice president of trade shows, Claire Kilcoyne, who announced her retirement after 35 years of dedicated service to the metal construction industry. Her keen leadership and ability to build long-lasting relationships has been key to her many successes. Click HERE for the full press release on Claire’s retirement. On behalf of your METALCON team, we will miss you … but know you won’t be far away!
