When the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in the cancellation of SMACNA’s 77th Annual Conference, SMACNA leaders were faced with a difficult dilemma.
How could SMACNA still deliver timely and meaningful educational content to members, along with the opportunity to speak directly with Premier Partners and Associate Members about their products, in an environment that fosters networking and fellowship?
The SMACNA Edge Conference: A Virtual Education Forum is the result. This fully virtual event will provide attendees with a truly memorable learning experience that includes presentations on current economic data and forecasts, technical trends, project management, leadership, and other pressing challenges facing you and your organizations — along with solutions to those challenges — delivered by the most experienced and trusted experts in the industry. Ample time will be given at the conclusion of these presentations for question and answer sessions directly with the speakers.
SMACNA has also taken the unprecedented step of offering members the opportunity to register all of their employees for the conference, providing an important learning opportunity to individuals at all levels in their organizations.
Additionally, the entire The SMACNA Edge Conference will be recorded and available on-demand for attendees to access through January 15, 2021, providing attendees unlimited flexibility to view sessions at their convenience, in the event they are unable to attend the live conference.
The SMANCA Edge Conferences program also includes three days of roundtable discussions (hosted in SMACNA’s tradeshow booth in ) where SMACNA member contractors can speak directly with their fellow contractors about important topics while catching up with industry friends and acquaintances, all in the completely digital Edge Conference environment.
Attendees will be able to visit The Edge Conference Exhibit Hall all three days to view the newest products, latest innovations, and relevant business solutions from more than 30 industry suppliers and service providers. The Exhibit Hall will be open during the entire Edge Conference, with staff from exhibiting companies on hand to answer questions and demonstrate products and services.
In these unprecedented and often challenging times, SMACNA is ready to deliver the information that Members and their employees need in order to remain on the cutting Edge. Register yourself and your staff today by visiting www.smacna.link/register.
We look forward to greeting you!
