A Word From Our Sponsor
The Metal Construction Association

Browse through our dozens of technical bulletins, white papers, manuals, reports and guidelines at the booth. Learn about MCA's vital programs demonstrating the energy efficiency of metal roofs and walls.

The MCA Demo area -- right behind the MCA booth -- will feature hands-on demonstrations of commercial roofing, residential roofing and tools. Take advantage of the expanded seating area for better viewing and learn techniques from the experts that you can take back to the field. See the METALCON website for the demonstration schedule.

MCA will present its annual Chairman's Awards for building excellence during a press conference on Tuesday, October 9 from 4:15 to 5 pm in the Solar Bay Demo Area on the show floor. The Chairman's Awards are an annual designation given to outstanding building projects involving MCA member companies. The Awards honor innovation and creativity while showcasing how metal products help achieve exceptional building designs. Join us to learn this year's award recipients, watch a video detailing these excellent projects and hear comments from our architect judging panel.

Mark your calendar also for a joint briefing from MCA and the Cool Metal Roofing Coalition on Thursday, October 11 from 9:00 to 9:45 am in Room 14 right near the exhibit hall. Hear details about what's happening with technical activities within both these dynamic groups and have a snack before the show floor opens!
