What We Are?
Started in 2003, METROCON is the largest not-for-profit [501(c)6], self-produced, volunteer-driven, design specification-focused regional expo and conference in the USA.
METROCON is governed and planned by a dedicated Committee of Volunteers who work within the built environment. They make time to work hand-in-hand throughout the year to bring our region's industry professionals together because they are passionate about the value METROCON brings to their respective member organizations and the entire region as a whole.
To introduce new products and ideas to our region’s community of Interior Designers, Architects, Specifiers, Facility Managers, Real Estate Professionals, Students & other Essential Industry Members catering to the built environment.
Income from the annual event goes back to the Committee volunteers’ respective built environment associations to fund valuable programming and scholarships or to foundations and charities focusing on the built environment.
