The Convention program includes a series of carefully selected business sessions, including panel discussions, presentations, roundtables and workshops for industry professionals.
Now a mainstay at the Annual Convention, the tabletop Tech Fair continues to provide attendees with an opportunity to learn about the latest innovations and newest products in the industry. Manufacturer and affiliate representatives will be on hand to converse one-on-one with contractors about the tools, equipment and services they offer in an intimate setting that is unattainable at large trade shows. The Tech Fair is a unique event that is a favorite of both contractors and manufacturers. A deli-style lunch will be served during the Tech Fair and a cash bar will be available.
