More associations. More collaboration. More METROCON for 2017.

As the business of shaping the built environment demands enhanced teamwork and cross-disciplinary partnerships, so does the planning and execution of METROCON Expo & Conference.

We are thrilled to announce that the following associations have joined forces to bring you a more meaningful, expansive event for 2017: (in alphabetical order) ASID Texas Chapter, ASID Texas Gulf Coast Chapter, CSI Dallas Chapter, NEWH Dallas Chapter, and USGBC Texas Chapter.

CSI is a national association of more than 10,000 volunteers, including specifiers, architects, engineers, contractors, facility managers, product representatives, manufacturers, owners and others who are experts in building construction and the materials used therein. The active CSI Dallas Chapter focuses its energy on professional development, knowledge building, networking, and community outreach.

NEWH is the premier networking resource for the hospitality industry, providing scholarships, education, leadership development, recognition of excellence, and business development opportunities. The thriving NEWH Dallas Chapter is dedicated to scholarship and networking for its 500+ members working in the hospitality, foodservice, senior living and related industries.

USGBC is committed to transforming the way our buildings are designed, constructed and operated through LEED. With roughly 1,200 members working as architects, interior designers, landscape architects, engineers, consultants, and more, the diverse USGBC Texas Chapter helps to advance spaces that are better for the environment and healthier for all.

ASID is a community of 25,000+ designers, industry representatives, educators and students committed to all sectors and aspects of interior design. Combined, the energetic ASID Texas and ASID Texas Gulf Coast Chapters represent almost 3,000 members who strive to advance the interior design profession and, in the process, demonstrate and celebrate the power of design to positively change people’s lives.

Each chapter is providing promotional support and volunteer leaders who are devoting their time to work together to bring value to their respective members and beyond.

METROCON Expo & Conference exists to offer the best in exhibitors and continuing education to the region’s built environment community, and this multi-association collaboration promises to expand the show’s reach geographically, attract a more diverse audience, and make for a richer, more valuable experience for all involved.
