For most, the start of a new year is time for goal-setting and ambitious planning. Hopefully you started this before the ball dropped and didn’t forget your research on the top construction trade shows/conferences to attend in 2019. If you didn’t tackle this yet, don’t worry, we have a list of some of the better shows for you to check out.

For contractors, insurance professionals and industry partners, these events are an invaluable opportunity to catch up with peers, share project successes and challenges, and work together to drive the industry forward. The industry also uses trade shows and conferences to shine a spotlight on new trends, the latest building materials and services. The industry is embracing technology, so you’ll likely find technology pavilions at these shows highlighting all the new “tools” being used on construction sites.

Construction is big business, so it’s no wonder that there are some major shows in this industry. Triax has a presence at most of these shows – whether we’re exhibiting, speaking or attending – so check out our Events page to learn where you can see our technology in action and/or meet with a member of our team. Below are dates, locations and information on a number of industry events taking place in 2019:

Design-Build Conference & Expo
