2016 General Contractor’s Showcase Postponed

Due to issues with the event location, the 2016 Contractor’s Showcase will be postponed to a later date and new location.  The Contractor’s Showcase has become one of our most popular annual events, with some 600 attendees, and we want to host the best event possible. Unfortunately, the management at the event location made it too difficult for our team to host a great event and other possible locations did not materialize on such short notice. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience that this may cause you and your company.  We do thank the many sponsors, exhibitors, companies and individuals that have agreed to participate and hope that a date and location change will not deter your involvement with the 2016 Contractor’s Showcase. A new location and date for the event will be broadcast within the next two weeks.  Thank you for your understanding, and please accept our apologies for the inconvenience! We do hope to see you at the showcase later in the year! ... Read the rest of entry »
