Message from the PresidentMike Reynolds

METALCON was a great success, a great show where you can learn, network, do business and participate in the largest international event  dedicated uniquely to metal in construction. The latest innovative products and services in the metal construction industry were on the show floor that was buzzing with action. The peer-to-peer education sessions, featured speakers that provided practical, tangible and precise takeaways to help you solve your business problems!


One of the exciting features at METALCON is the Metal Construction News Hall of Fame. This year the reception was held on the USS Constellation. The MBCEA waswell represented in this year’s Hall of Fame. Stay tuned for our follow-up report.


Conference 2017 is going to be big! We will be co-located with MBMA in New Orleans. All I can say is book early as it will surely sell out.  Download the Sponsor and Exhibitors forms.


The new IMP Training Video is well under way. Andy Lee, Leon Dazey, Wes Young, Jackie Meiluta and I spent a few days this month filming at the NCI Training Center in Houston. We still need some footage from a field site but are confident we will have a quality video available soon.
