Battle Stars over Baltimore, MCA Metal Roofing Championship Games 

This year, there will be five challenges each day under the appropriately named theme; “Battle Stars Over Baltimore” in recognition of our Star Spangled Banner birthplace.  Construction professionals from the audience compete each day of the show for cash prizes in a number of different challenges.  More info here!


MCA Metal Roof Installation Training

Top experts in the metal roofing industry will lead this two-day, eight-hour certification program based on MCA’s recently published Metal Roof Installation Manual.  The objective is to couple the training program with the opportunity to visit the exhibit floor where participants can see live demonstrations of what they have just learned, while networking with industry experts.  Learn more here!

METALCON Gives to Baltimore Area Veterans 

Last year, METALCON raised $10,000 at its 25th anniversary celebration in Tampa to provide intensive rehabilitative care to service members treated at the Tampa Polytrauma Rehabilitation Center.  This year, METALCON’s giving back program continues to benefit the America’s Fund and will raise money for military veterans in need of adaptive home support services throughout the Baltimore area.  See here!
