The Cold-Formed Steel Engineers Institute (CFSEI) will host the 2019 CFSEI Annual Expo on June 4-6, 2019 at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel Chicago–Magnificent Mile, 300 E. Ohio Street, in Chicago, Illinois. This event is designed for architects, builders/contractors and engineers, with an educational program geared toward both skilled cold-formed steel (CFS) framing professionals as well as newcomers. It will provide opportunities for education and networking as well as an exposition featuring state-of-the-art innovations, technologies and principles in cold-formed steel framing. The two-day conference is the only one of its kind dedicated to the cold-formed steel framing industry.
The Expo will include:
- Several technical sessions providing continuing education credits (topics to be announced),
- A trade show featuring the latest technologies in cold-formed steel framing, and
- An announcement of the winners of the 2019 CFSEI Design and Distinguished Service Awards.
A special highlight is a tour of the USG Testing Facilities in Libertyville, Illinois, which will take place on Tuesday, June 4, 2019. Participants must be registered for the full conference to be eligible for the tour. The USG facilities have significant capabilities and expertise in conducting a wide range of fire, structural, acoustical and analytical evaluations to support new products or systems development, address unique construction project challenges, comply with independent certification requirements, and gain a more in-depth understanding of a desired subject area.
CFSEI Expo sponsorship opportunities are available at the Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze and Supporter levels.
