Strong Reasons to Go to Masonry Showcase

President’s Message

By

Three shows in one - contact with your customers - free attendance ... strong reasons to go to Masonry Showcase next month in Chicago!

Next month at Chicago's McCormick Place, MCAA's Masonry Showcase will feature an all-new experience for mason contractors. Unlike other shows, this year's Showcase will be held with our industry's specifiers and architects. Never before have we had the opportunity to view our industry's best products and equipment on the exhibit showroom floor along with our customers. We are excited about the new dynamic that this will offer our attendees. Attending next month's Masonry Showcase will allow you to network with new customers - a great reason to attend the Showcase. Along with our industry's customers, you will he able to visit nearly three times the number of exhibits.

In addition to the more than 170 booths at Masonry Showcase, there will be over 500 additional booths to view. In the past, I have personally visited the exhibits at Construct AmericaTM and have found hundreds of products that could help my business grow. No other show offers you such a wide range of products and services.

More importantly, it is absolutely free to visit the exhibits!

Adding to your Showcase experience, we have developed an extensive educational program that you can't find anywhere. We have 15 dynamic workshops targeted to help you and your key employees improve your skills and understanding of running a highly profitable business. We are also offering four seminar courses, including Foreman Development, Advanced Masonry Estimating, Masonry Wall Bracing and an all-new OSHA 10 hour Safety Course. You will find all of your educational needs in one location. It has never been easier to give your key employees the education they need to help you achieve your company's profit goals.

Lastly, this year Masonry Showcase will be located in one of our country's most enjoyable cities ... Chicago. It has been over 30 years since Chicago has hosted MCAA's convention. You will have a wealth of culture and nightlife right outside of your hotel room. Chicago is also a very accessible city, with nearly one-third of our nation's mason contractors within a short drive of Chicago. So, not only is it free to attend Masonry Showcase, but it's easy to get there as well.

Don't miss out on the all new Masonry Showcase with Construct America. Come to Chicago April 19-22 to the MUST-ATTEND event of 2005.
