METALCON 2020 is postponed until 2021

METALCON is postponed until Oct. 6-8, 2021, in Tampa, Fla. Frank Stasiowski, FAIA, CEO at PSMJ Resources and METALCON, said, “Due to the ongoing concerns of the COVID-19 pandemic and mandates established by the state of Nevada, METALCON 2020 cannot take place as planned for this October.”

“To their credit, Las Vegas and the State of Nevada have done everything they can to try to get us to open up in October and have our convention there,” Stasiowski said. “They work with dozens of other meetings and tradeshows trying to do the same, but this virus is relentless and is really working against all of us, including the State of Nevada and the great people at the Las Vegas Convention & Visitors ity.”

METALCON announced three new initiatives:

1. The METALCON Safety Certificate Program is for supervisors and foremen in the metal construction industry, leading to an annual credential, making every one of your projects safer. 2. The METALCON Business Development Program features education and training in all aspects of a business, from technical to business and sales, that will enhance a business via a series of virtual seminars leading to a certificate awarded at METALCON 2021.

3. The METALCON Live! New Industry Briefs features industry leaders who will provide up-to-date information on what is happening in today’s marketplace.

“The good news in this industry, in particular, is 90 percent of you are busier today in 2020 than you’ve been in decades,” Stasiowski said. “We are more profitable as a result of being forced into this virtual

environment–working from 德扑圈官网版下载home, not traveling and not spending overhead dollars. All signs point to greater investment in infrastructure and the ability of cash to grow projects. We see investment going

on in new steel plants right here in America. All of this points to an uptick in business in 2021, and we are going to be here to help you.”

“We will continue to navigate these uncharted waters to the best of our ability and ask you to navigate them with us,” says Judy Geller, Vice President of Tradeshows at METALCON. “Until we can meet again

in person, we look forward to connecting with you virtually and to delivering a world-class event next year in Tampa!”
