Masonry Showcase 2007 will be showcasing a very exciting line up of education session topics and speakers.

Additional sessions will include topics discussing new masonry codes, masonry cleaning, masonry inspection and more.
MCAA is introducing a certification program for the masonry industry's contractors. This certification program will help to ensure that your company maintains the highest level of quality construction. You can get a jump on earning credit towards certification by attending one of the education seminars. Seminars will include the new Masonry Quality Institute (MQI), Foreman Development or Basic Masonry Estimating.
This year's exhibits will once again attract the best of the industry to come together. This is your opportunity to meet vendors and discover new products. New morning show hours will allow time for networking or a chance to enjoy some of Orlando's attractions.
The industry will come together with a joint closing reception hosted by MCAA and NCMA at Universal Studios. This event will allow for networking among industry leaders. Attendees will start the evening with a private reception and dinner party at the Groove lounge in City Walk. The event will move to Universal Studios Island of Adventure where we will end the evening with private access to Marvel Super Hero Island. There will be many opportunities for fun and entertainment, even for those who are not thrill seekers!
