The latest member of the METALCON International team is virtually all over the map. Called ME, this cheerful, resilient character is being spotted at points all across the country and in cyberspace. His journey reaches from http://www.metalcon.com/ through all levels of electronic media to offices of architects, contractors and building owners around the world and in projects that feature metal. He's also being seen in person at different industry events.
"Our ME companion is leading the charge to create awareness of METALCON
International in all phases of electronic and print media -- and in person. ME has a touch of green as a reminder that metal is a green material. He's also our social media expert, making his way through Facebook and Twitter. He's our traveling road scholar for all things metal -- showcasing projects of METALCON exhibitors, and acting as an industry liaison that appears at meetings, events and conferences. He will of course be at the 23rd METALCON in Atlanta this October," notes Claire Kilcoyne, Show Director for METALCON International.
METALCON International is the only annual conference and exposition focused on metal
construction products, technologies and solutions. The 23rd METALCON International takes place October 1-3 at the Georgia World Congress Center in downtown Atlanta, Georgia.
ME will appear in all METALCON materials and is the latest promotional tool made
available to all exhibitors and promotional partners. Each year show management creates new methods for participating companies and organizations to promote their presence at METALCON. Previously introduced tools such as the interactive a2z application allow direct communication between mobile devices of attendees and exhibitors and the show's website prior to and during the event. This allows attendees to download plans for the show and for exhibitors to send updates on their exhibit and products.
Plans for the 2013 METALCON are well under way with more than 85% of booth space
filled and expansion of the education format that shifts from a traditional 1.5-hour multiple-track program to longer 3-hour sessions tailored to specific disciplines. Modified successfully for 2012 program, the new format offers more indepth learning opportunities both in the classroom and on the exhibit floor.
METALCON draws designers, builders, developers, contractors, fabricators, and suppliers
from more than 52 countries. Experts from more than 300 companies exhibit the latest products and technology and share their knowledge with attendees, while industry specialists present key topics in the education program. Specialists from the Metal Construction Association and other industry related associations also present the latest applications and field techniques in daily demonstrations in the exhibit hall.
