2016 BCMC Show
October 18-21, 2016 | Knoxville Convention Center | Knoxville, TN
Many thanks for joining us at this year’s show! A special THANK YOU goes out to all of our exhibitors for their dedicated support of our industry! Please share your appreciation as you visit them on the show floor.
Welcome to BCMC
Opportunity knocked and you answered! Welcome and thanks for joining us in Knoxville, Tennessee. It is our pleasure to introduce you to a new host city and all that BCMC 2016 has to offer.
While everyone comes to BCMC for different reasons, past attendees have indicated networking and connecting with their peers was one of their primary reasons for attending. This is the absolute best place to gain the perspective of component manufacturers (CMs) from across the country. An excellent example of this is the educational sessions, which are prepared and presented by CMs for CMs and focus on big questions that come up between attendees. These sessions embody the spirit of camaraderie on which the show is built. There’s simply nowhere else you can access so much industry knowledge in one place.
The show continues to grow right along with the success of the structural building components industry. This is evident as we welcome well over 100 exhibitors this year, several of which are new to the show. As these suppliers assemble from all over the world, the exhibit hall is bursting with innovation – the perfect place to steep yourself in the possibilities for a new year ahead.
As you plan for 2017, we challenge you to think beyond that new piece of equipment that catches your eye or that new process you hear about in an educational session. Take a moment to think about your skill set and what you bring to the table that can make this industry even better. Then get involved! Ask questions during the sessions and participate in the roundtable opportunities. Engage others on the show floor, visit SBCA’s booth and consider attending the SBCA Board meeting on Friday to gain a better understanding of what your industry association is doing on your behalf and how you can benefit from it.
It is exciting to have the community together once again! We look forward to seeing you on the show floor and throughout the coming year as you continue to seek opportunities to make your business and our industry the very best they can be!
