This comprehensive experience offers everything from immersive workshops to motivational keynote speakers to best practices and technical knowledge. Start planning your days now – with over 35 sessions available, you don’t want to miss out on your favorites.
On Wednesday, October 18, make sure you join leaders from Metal Construction Association (MCA) to discuss the state of the industry. They’ll discuss opportunities and challenges in the metal industry including technical developments, metal resiliency in the building market, sustainability and so much more. Improve your technical know-how and join Dale Nelson, president of Roof Hugger and others as they explain metal retrofit roofing from basic construction techniques to marketing and selling. S-5!® and Sheffield Metals join other industry experts for a discussion around sustainability and the architecture 2030 Challenge to increase renewable energy and approach net zero goals. During their session, they will debunk common myths about metal and explore innovative applications of metal in design.
Get a good night’s rest so you can come back and do it again on Thursday, October 19! S-5! continues the sustainability conversation to help better understand ESG (Environment, Social and Governance) policies for corporate responsibility and how metal construction is one of the best platforms for renewable energy. Be sure to catch Sherwin-Williams as they discuss color trends for the future of building construction. In this session, they’ll take you through the color evolution process, new technologies in coatings and macro architecture trends that relate to manufacturing. For a best practices session, join Todd Miller, president of Isaiah Industries, to help you convert asphalt shingle leads to metal roof sales.
Maximize your experience by adding paid workshops to your agenda. Choose from four- or eight-hour workshops that cover a variety of topics on sales, installation, rollforming and more. Each day will also feature a morning kickoff and a keynote speaker that will keep the energy buzzing throughout the day!
