The Metal Construction Association, an organization of manufacturers and suppliers whose metal products are used in structures throughout the world and the main sponsor of METALCON International, will present metal roof and wall demonstrations at Booth #328 at METALCON, October 20-22, 2010 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV.
The popular MCA Demos are designed to provide insight on the latest roofing and wall technologies, with discussions and demonstrations of the latest techniques and trends. New this year — Attendees will be able to see the residential roof, commercial roof, and wall panel demos up close. In addition to one-hour audience demonstrations for residential roofs, commercial roofs and wall panel applications each day, each of the three areas will be open for attendees to walk through during exhibit hall hours. Participants can ask questions, work with tools, and have one-on-one discussions with experts to learn more about each application. This "up close and personal" viewing of the details and the tools used for installation of metal panels in both roof and wall applications is designed to give more information to take back and use in the field.
