An impressive 84% of these companies expressed their satisfaction by signing up for next year,” remarked show manager, Claire Kilcoyne. Attendees enjoyed many memorable momentsincluding Clyde Fessler’s“ride in” on a Harley to deliver his Keynote Address, watching colleagues compete in the 2nd annual MCA Metal Roofing Championship Games, taking advantage of free education at the Learning Zones on the show floor and celebrating at the 25th Anniversary Party on opening night.

METALCON GIVES BACK TO "AMERICA'S FUND" METALCON selected America’s Fund as this year’s “giving back” organization and with the help of our generous attendees and exhibitors, we very proudly presented a $10,000 check to the Director of the Tampa Polytrauma Rehabilitation Center on the last day of the show. “Going forward, we want to ensure METALCON’s giving back efforts benefit those brave individuals who’ve put their futures on the line to make all of us safer and able to enjoy all of the freedoms we have,” says Show Director, Claire Kilcoyne. “By affiliating with America’s Fund, we open the door for more recipients and donations on an ongoing basis, not just at our annual event.” If you missed the opportunity to donate at the show, click HERE to donate today or anytime throughout the year!
