New this year to METALCON– the only global event dedicated exclusively to the application of metal in design and construction – is the Meet the Press Event at the upcoming show in Indianapolis. 

Exhibitors are invited to meet with editors and reporters from 10 leading industry trade publications to introduce a new product, service or solution, or perhaps provide a unique insight into trends taking place in the industry today. 

The following publications are inviting exhibitors to schedule brief one-on-one, 10-minute meetings with them on Friday, Oct. 14th between 10.00 and 11.30 a.m. at the METALCON Main Theater on the show floor.

Exhibitors can book appointments via an online calendar hosted on the METALCON website and on the METALCON app. Simply follow this link, Meet the Press Sign Up, and sign up for a time slot with the various publications. Interviews are available on a first-come, first-served basis and must be scheduled in advance of the show. 

“We are very excited to offer this new exhibitor benefit,” says METALCON Vice President, Judy Geller. “It is a great opportunity for folks to meet with the key individuals shaping news and information in the metal construction industry today. We hope our exhibitors will take full advantage of this unique opportunity to meet leading trade press―all in one place and at one time.” 


Established in 1991, METALCON is the only annual tradeshow and conference devoted exclusively to the application of metal in design and construction. METALCON’S success is based on a dynamic exhibit hall, extensive educational programs and interactive learning opportunities. Produced by PSMJ Resources, Inc., in partnership with the Metal Construction Association, this year’s show takes place in Indianapolis from Oct. 12 to 14. For more information, visit
