At the start of the year, we posted “Construction Industry Convention and Expos 2019” where we listed construction trade shows through the summer to help you plan ahead and secure dates for the first half of the year. Now that we are mid-year, it is the perfect time to look at the coming months to assess if there are any other expos that would be a good fit for your business to round out networking and education programs that you have in place.
As previously mentioned in other posts, conventions and expos can serve a valuable purpose; along with having an opportunity to view the best and the brightest of the industry, industry events provide a multitude of opportunities to network, expand your knowledge and catch up on continuing education credits. If you are a manufacturer or supplier and are looking to get the word out on a new product line or launch, it is the ideal time to put your new products in the spotlight, and connect with new and established customers with whom you may not have the chance to visit in-person on a regular basis.
The following is a list of expos and events to consider for the second half of 2019:
