Overview

Event Overview:

This is a very exciting time, as the PCI Convention and National Bridge Conference has been reinvented. This premier industry event will still have all of the education, meetings, and networking opportunities that you have come to expect and enjoy, but with a new consolidated schedule, and a larger exhibit hall.

PCI Convention and National Bridge Conference co-locates with The Precast Show. This co-location will provide many new and expanded opportunities for attendees of both shows. Highlights include:

A combined exhibit hall, creating the largest tradeshow in North America dedicated to precast concrete with more products and technology than ever before
Savings on registrations, making it possible for attendees to purchase educational offerings of both shows at member prices as long as attendee has a membership with PCI or the National Precast Concrete Association (NPCA)
Access to more knowledge and expertise from industry experts, professionals, and stakeholders, with an estimated 2500 attendees

The PCI Convention and National Bridge Conference proudly offers:

More than 35 education sessions on key areas such as technical, transportation, research, marketing, business, and productivity
More than 65 Committee and Council meetings
New PCI Welcome Program and Luncheon
Celebration of Excellence awards gala
Many networking and learning opportunities

About PCI:

Founded in 1954, the Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute (PCI) is the technical institute and trade association for the precast/prestressed concrete structures industry. As a technical institute, PCI develops, maintains, and disseminates the Body of Knowledge for the design, fabrication, and erection of precast concrete structures and systems by:

  • Conducting research and development projects in concert with universities and research laboratories nationwide
  • Publishing a broad array of technical resources including design manuals, state-of-the-art reports, periodicals, and more
  • Certifying companies and individuals involved in the manufacture and erection of precast/prestressed concrete products
  • Educating precast personnel and industry stakeholders on the proper specification, design, fabrication, erection, and use of precast/prestressed concrete
  • Representing the industry in code advocacy activities

About NCPA:

National Precast Concrete Association has represented manufacturers of plant-produced precast concrete products and the suppliers of products and services for the industry since 1965. We are dedicated to expanding the use of quality precast concrete and providing members with the programs and information required to operate a successful precast plant.
