ATTENDEE INFORMATION

Why Attend:

Do you build or sell small, special use residential buildings?
Whether garages, sheds, gazebos or carports, sales of these residential buildings are heavily influenced by affordability and perceived value.
Whether you are looking to minimize unit cost or see the latest ways to increase functionality and desirability, the task is related to products and best manufacturing practices.
There is one place where you can see the new products and be introduced to best practices. This place is the Garage, Shed & Carport Builder Show.
Because we publish six construction related magazines and another trade show, we can bring manufacturers from many diverse categories relevant to this niche.
This is for more than just garden sheds.

NEW EXHIBITORS

Why Exhibit:

The people who build and sell small, special use residential buildings are always looking for an edge. To be successful they need to compete on the basis of both price and value.
Do your products help them make a better product more efficiently? If yes, you need to tell them.
You can advertise in our publications all year, but here is your chance to meet these valuable customers face to face.
Exhibit and show them your product and volunteer to lead one of the education seminars.
Help our attendees understand why they need your products.
Help our attendees become your customers.

PLEASE REMEMBER THIS IS PRELIMINARY AND WE ARE OPEN TO SUGGESTIONS
The Construction Rollforming Association Introductory Rollforming Course is a stand alone unit that requires preregistration. All of the other seminars are open to any attendees who paid for the educational programming.
All topics are tentative at this point. No speakers formally scheduled.
Many topics are intentionally broad with to allow speakers some flexibility to utilize their own expertise.
All time slots are tentative. After topics are finalized, the schedule will be arranged so similar topics do not compete.
If you have a suggestion for a topic or topics that you believe provide value or should be covered, please contact me.
We have the capability to add additional class rooms.
The “No Classes” periods and Programming in the Demo Area are designed to keep traffic on the show floor. The sessions in the Demo Area are free to all attendees.
