METALCON, the global trade show dedicated to applying metal in design and construction, recently announced it would hold its 2023 conference at the Las Vegas Convention Center from Wednesday, Oct. 18–Friday, Oct. 20, 2023; pre-show workshops beginning on Tuesday, Oct. 17.   

In a release, PSMJ Resources, Inc., producer of the annual show, noted that new for 2023 is the METALCON Training Zone, located on the show floor and sponsored by Sherwin-Williams. Led by John Sheridan of Sheridan Metal Resources, the hands-on training facility will feature demonstrations and education [in both English and Spanish] using a variety of mock-ups and materials, including painted steel, aluminum, zinc, copper and other exotic materials. 

MetalCon_1.pngTraining will focus on proper detailing and using 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 metal roof offerings and systems.

Also new for this year is a “Mergers & Acquisitions Essentials” workshop presented by PSMJ Resources, Inc., expert Karl Wolker. Are you interested in growing your business through acquisition but unsure where to start? Geared toward business owners and executives, the foundational workshop will cover core principles driving the most successful transactions. Participants will learn the latest strategies for finding a suitable merger and acquisition counterparty, structuring win-win transactions, assessing valuations, successfully integrating and more. 

PSMJ Resources says it has also introduced a new tiered pricing system. The show producer says the best offering, in effect through April 24, is the Super Saver Registration pricing. See the website for details.
