Registration is now open for METALCON 2023, the only global event dedicated exclusively to the application of metal in design and construction. This year’s conference and tradeshow takes place at the Las Vegas Convention Center from Wednesday, Oct. 18 – Friday, Oct. 20, 2023, with pre-show workshops beginning on Tuesday, Oct. 17.   

Industry experts will present key topics in the show's highly-rated, education program and companies representing the entire spectrum of metal in construction will showcase the latest products, solutions and game-changing technologies covering everything from A to Z: accessories; building systems; coatings; construction technology; contractor tools; doors; fasteners; fenestration; framing; in-plant accessories; insulated metal panels; interior metal products; manufacturing equipment; ornamental/custom fabrication; metal roofing; rooftop products; solar; substrate material and walls. 

New for 2023 is the METALCON Training Zone centrally located on the show floor and sponsored by Sherwin-Williams. Led by John Sheridan of Sheridan Metal Resources and his team of experts, the training zone will provide hands-on training featuring demonstrations and education (both in English and in Spanish) using a variety of mock-ups and materials including painted steel, aluminum, zinc, copper and other exotic materials. Training will focus on proper detailing and utilization of the right tools to enhance the skills of contractors, remodelers and others, enabling them to deliver their best, most efficient and cleanest work when installing various metal roof offerings and systems. 

Also new this year is a Mergers & Acquisitions Essentials Workshop presented by PSMJ Resources, Inc., expert Karl Wolker. Interested in growing your business through acquisition, but aren’t sure where to start? Could merging or selling your business be the perfect exit strategy for preserving your hard-won equity and legacy? Geared toward business owners and executives, this foundational workshop will cover the core principles driving the most successful transactions. Participants will learn the latest strategies for finding the right M&A counterparty, structuring win-win transactions, assessing valuations, successfully integrating and more!
