2018 RCI International Convention & Trade Show

George R. Brown Convention Center, Houston, Texas
Mar 22 - Mar 27, 2018

Overview

Event Overview:

RCI’s premier annual event features over 25 hours of educational seminars, live product demonstrations, and a two‐day trade show with over 130 exhibitors.

It’s a great opportunity to  meet with  fellow members, discover the newest developments in building envelope technology, and earn a full year’s worth of continuing education credit - all at one event.

Attendee Information:

The association’s annual event is about the sharing of information and ideas. The opportunities to learn from fellow building envelope professionals, be they consultant, contractor, manufacturer, or facility manager, are plentiful at the RCI International Convention and Trade Show.

Don’t miss an opportunity to make a friend, develop a new lead, learn about a new technology - or just have some fun.

Trade Show

The RCI, Inc. International Trade Show offers attendees the chance to meet and learn from representatives from over 130 manufacturers of roofing, waterproofing, and exterior wall products.

Discover Products for Better Building Envelopes
Exhibiting companies send knowledgeable staff to the RCI trade show to provide building envelope consultants with answers to important questions about material characteristics and application. Research and development professionals attend to trade valuable insights into the future direction of today’s building envelope materials.

Earn CEHs for Attending the RCI Trade Show.
Attendees will earn 2.0 CEHs for spending up to four hours on the trade show floor. Attendees who spend more than four hours at the trade show will receive 3.0 CEHs.

Exhibitor Information:

Show your product to the Industry’s most focused group of Building Envelope Specifiers

When you exhibit at the RCI International Convention and Trade Show, you gain direct access to a motivated and influential group of product specifiers.

Unlike at more generically-focused Industry trade shows, each RCI Consultant Member attendee is professionally motivated to discover the merits of today’s building envelope products and services. Winning the approval of just one RCI member can mean millions of dollars in sales.
