We have had a great response at our METROCON showings for our cordless lamps over the last two years. The designers love to talk to us about our products and help us with suggestions on what new lines they are looking for for their commercial, hospitality and residential interior design projects. We have listened to their requests and have just launched our hospitality lineup and can’t wait to show it off at this year’s show. One of the biggest surprises is the amount of new designers that we see every year. Last year we utilized the name tag card scanner to save designer’s emails and we were shocked to learn that 70% of the emails we scanned were new designers. We have already registered for 2018 and can’t wait to see what is new this year!

We’re already thinking about METROCON18! Our team that was at this year’s show was really impressed with the traffic.

METROCON is affordable.

Depending on your Membership status and whether or not you choose to upgrade your booths, the cost to exhibit runs between $5.25/sf - $11.25/sf. Plus, you get 3 complimentary exhibitor badges and 3 complimentary Happy Hour drink tickets for every 10’x10’ booth you buy.

Thank you for such a great Metrocon! It was a great show!

METROCON is easy on you.

The show is on one floor, so move-in and tear-down doesn’t require fighting over elevators or navigating stairs. As long as you don’t require motorized equipment, then you can use your own installers and do everything yourself.

METROCON means business.

Our regional show may not be as big and beautiful as the national shows (or as expensive!), but it works, and this year we are collecting more data from both you and our attendees - who work across all markets - so that we can do a better, more targeted job of matchmaking.

We are fans of Metrocon! The show is small enough to make personal connections and large enough to be worth the effort. We love connecting with the Texas design community.

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