The first Southwest Regional Concrete Home Builder Show is scheduled for September 5–6, 2002, in San Antonio, Texas.
Permanent Buildings & Foundations magazine (www.permanent buildings.com) the business newsmagazine for the concrete builder and the Cement and Concrete Promotion Council of Texas have joined to launch the new show which will be held at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center.
“This is the only show of its kind in the Southwest specifically targeted to the concrete home building professional,” said Robert Lopez, executive director of the Cement and Concrete Promotion Council of Texas.
This annual event gives building professionals the opportunity to visit hands-on product exhibits from major manufacturers and expand their construction knowledge through a conference program that offers 24 seminars. Training focuses on regional problems and solutions and will include an “Ask the Expert” clinic. The exhibit hall will have two 1,600 sq. ft. staging areas offering live demonstrations, and a 3,200 sq. ft. special event area providing demonstrations for constructing lower level living spaces for the Southwest market.
Roger W. Nielsen, editor-in-chief of Permanent Building & Foundations magazine said, “We have seen a dramatic increase over the past several years in residential concrete construction, and our hope is that this show will provide opportunities for both construction material and equipment manufacturers and builders.” For more information, visit www.concretehomebuildershow. com.
