Mark Your Calendars: NASCC: The Steel Conference is Coming to St. Louis, April 3-5
Are you involved in the design or construction of steel buildings or bridges? If so, NASCC: The Steel Conference is for you!
The Steel Conference is the premier opportunity to immerse yourself in the latest design concepts, construction techniques and cutting-edge research while engaging with thousands of industry professionals.
An Extraordinary Experience, All Under One Roof!
The 2019 educational and networking event takes place April 3-5 in St. Louis and offers nearly 150 expert-led sessions, more than 240 trade show exhibitors, access to the Annual Stability Conference (with 26 sessions) and the World Steel Bridge Symposium (with 13 sessions), and the opportunity to network and connect with nearly 5,000 other industry professionals.
What’s New This Year
- Welcome Reception
This year features the return of the Welcome Reception on Wednesday evening in the exhibit hall!
- Conference Dinner
We’ve now included the cost of the Conference Dinner on Thursday night with your full registration!
- Keynote Sessions
There will be three keynote sessions—one each day. The first is a general topic designed to engage the audience and will feature a former rocket scientist turned law professor who’s best known as a professional contrarian. Ozan Varol will share why not following the herd can lead to spectacular success. The second will feature a presentation from a top-rated speaker from the last decade of conferences—Jon Magnusson from MKA, who will share stories from his amazing projects and use his crystal ball to look at future trends that will impact design and construction. And the third will offer the 2019 T.R. Higgins Lecture by Ron Ziemian for his work on brace stiffness for compression members.
- Earn More PDHs
The conference offers 17 PDHs plus an additional 4 PDHs if they participate in an optional Short Course on Tuesday afternoon and another 8 PDHs for the optional short course on Saturday.
With so many seminars running concurrently, it can be tough to select the one that’s right for you. So we’ve created tracks (or groupings) to help you find the seminars you’re most interested in—but we don’t require you to pre-register for specific tracks, and we encourage you to explore a wide range of seminars (including the 13 sessions at the Annual Stability Conference and the 26 sessions at the World Steel Bridge Symposium). All of the sessions are included with your conference registration!
- National Student Steel Bridge Competitions
On Wednesday in the exhibit hall, you’ll be able to witness student teams demonstrating the erection of their entries into the Student Steel Bridge Competition. If you’ve never participated in one of these fabulous events, you’re in for a surprise!
- Women Who Weld Workshops
Women Who Weld will hold a special workshop in the exhibit hall on Thursday and Friday morning.
Prices will increase as it gets closer to the conference — so the sooner you register, the more you’ll save! To learn more and to register, visit www.aisc.org/nascc
