Just A few reasons to attend:

  • Find new resources for your projects

This is a wonderful event to attend. You can take your CEUs and in between your class breaks can look at what new products are out there. I have enjoyed attending Metrocon every year.

METROCON is a very valuable resource to the design community. The continuing education, the in-person product updates, and particularly the annual reunion of designers and reps that we have not talked to in a long time are all priceless and could not be accomplished in any other format.

METROCON is affordable.

As long as you register online before the deadline, you can attend both days of the trade show for free. Depending on your Membership status you can take any amount of continuing education for a flat fee of $75 (Members) or $150 (non-Members). Plus, you get a complimentary drink ticket for the Thursday evening Happy Hour.

METROCON is easy on you.

The expo, all programming, and Thursday  Happy Hour are all in one building, so you don’t have to go running from place to place. Plus, all the exhibitors are in one large, daylight-filled room with wide aisles and a high ceiling, so you don’t feel like a mouse navigating an underground maze.

Metrocon is an economical and quick way to knock out CEUs and see new products and companies.

The A&D industry volunteers who govern this show are passionate about bringing our regional built environment community together to make connections, advance careers, and do business. We want you to have a worthwhile experience because it makes us happy. It’s as simple as that.

This show is a fabulous and affordable way for small firms to get tons of great information quickly!
