   Author: Marge O'Connor

The 25th annual METALCON is four weeks away. This international event takes place at the Tampa Convention Center from Wednesday, October, 14 through Friday, October 16. If you plan to attend and need a press pass, please let me know.

METALCON’s 25th Anniversary party is Wednesday 6 to 9 pm, in the Tampa Convention Center Ballroom.

Exhibits – Among the 265 exhibiting companies are 18 companies that helped pioneer METALCON and have continued to exhibit each year, plus 43 newcomers.

Action - The MCA’s 2nd annual Metal Roofing Championship Games will be held each show day in Booth 109. In this “Battle by the Bay”, contractors from the audience volunteer to compete for $100 prizes in challenges focused on tools, retrofit systems, panel seaming, snow retention systems, and fasteners. Judges for the competition are members of local Florida chapters of the Metal Building Contractors and Erectors Association (MBCEA).

Keynote - Clyde Fessler, former Vice President of Business Development for Harley-Davidson Motor Company talks about the turnaround that brought the company back from near disaster to being the leading motorcycle brand in the world. His address is Wednesday, October 14, from 10:15 to 11:45 a.m.


Classroom - METALCON’s general education programs are led by experts in the basics of metal, sales and business management who make any topic exciting and fun. Programs run mornings from Wednesday through Friday.

Exhibit Hall - Learning Zones are a series of 15-minute sessions in the exhibit hall designed to give attendees a concentrated way to learn more in smaller pieces of time. Learning Zones are located in Booth 845 and Booth 1145. Experts from exhibiting companies present their technology or product and offer Q&A to help solve everyday field situations.

STUD University – This popular program runs Tuesday and Wednesday, October 13 and 14. It combines classroom and hands-on workshops in the exhibit hall that offer an easy-to-understand exploration of framing with cold-formed steel.

Please contact me with any questions or requests for press passes.
