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 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.
METALCON International is the only conference and exposition focused on metal construction products, technologies and solutions and MCA’s largest single annual event. The 23rd METALCON 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.
Plans for the 2013 METALCON are well under way with more than 85 percent 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 the 2012 program, the new format offers more indepth learning opportunities both in the classroom and on the exhibit floor.
