Post-Frame Building Convention Attendees Get on the Fast Track

Mark your calendar for the Frame Building Expo, February 20-22, 2008 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio!

Lawrence, Kan., March 20, 2007 Approximately 2,200 builders, engineers, architects, suppliers and support personnel participated in the National Frame Builders Association's (NFBA) annual convention and trade show, Frame Building Expo. The Expo took place Feb. 28 March 2, 2007 at the Indiana Convention Center and RCA Dome in Indianapolis. The event marked record attendance for an NFBA convention.

NFBA's Frame Building Expo features a construction industry trade show and educational programming specific to the post-frame building industry. Builders, engineers, architects, academics and material suppliers participated in thirty educational classrooms sessions organized by NFBA for the Expo.

Topics for NFBA's educational sessions covered all aspects of the post-frame building industry, including the latest design and engineering advice from leading academic faculty and recognized industry experts. NFBA's programming lineup included eleven "Exhibitor Showcase" classroom sessions presented by manufacturers and distributors to educate attendees about new products and provide sound advice to enhance efficiency through proper product implementation.

The Frame Building Expo is the only event where post-frame industry professionals from across the nation can mingle and share ideas. The convention featured the only construction industry trade show of its kind. This year's event attracted more than 150 exhibiting companies.

Attendees met building component manufacturers and construction industry suppliers at the trade show, saw the newest products, entered prize drawings and participated in special events and competitions. Thursday's trade show featured a "Nail Pounding Competition" sponsored by Maze Nails, and a "Screw Driving Competition" sponsored by Atlas Bolt & Screw Co.

At the NFBA Awards Luncheon, NFBA "Building of the Year" contest winners and runners-up were recognized in 16 building categories covering commercial, industrial, institutional, residential, agricultural, and retrofit/remodel building types. Distinguished members also received the association's highest awards for service to the industry.

Convention-related social events included celebrity appearances and live entertainment. Several exhibitors pooled resources to sponsor "The 101 Voices & Faces of "The Builder Brothers Musical Comedy Show" - a high-energy, good clean musical-comedy act that had the audience in stitches. The annual Plyco Hospitality and Wheeling Jamboree also featured musical entertainment and beverages for all attendees. The annual "Christians in Construction" event featured the musical family group "The Needhams."

The 2007 Frame Building Expo will be remembered as an event that featured outstanding educational programming, record attendance and a record number of exhibitors. The 2008 Frame Building Expo will be February 20-22 in Columbus, Ohio.
