If you haven’t already, mark May 11-14 as “at NASCC: The Steel Conference in Pittsburgh” and join the more than 3,500 other steel construction industry professionals expected to attend. Here are some important deadlines and tidbits to keep in mind to register for the conference and plan your trip to the Steel City.
- April 18 is the deadline to book your hotel room at one of the official NASCC hotels in Pittsburgh before the blocks are released, and reservations will then be based on availability at higher rates. Reserve a hotel room at www.aisc.org/nascc. It’s also the date to register by in order to receive your name badge and registration materials in the mail prior to the conference. Check your mailboxes the week of May 2 for these materials.
- NASCC 2011 pre-registration discounts are available through May 5. After that date, on-site registration rates apply. Full pre-registration for AISC members is $390 (and the third registrant from your firm gets a discounted rate of $195). Full pre-registration for non-AISC members is $550 (and the third registrant from your firm gets a discounted rate of $285). Your registration gains you admittance to the more than 90 technical sessions at the conference, keynote address, the T.R. Higgins Lecture, and the exhibition hall (featuring the latest products ranging from structural software to machinery for cutting steel beams). For convenient online registration, go to www.aisc.org/nascc.
- The website also offers program information to help you plan to get the most out of the technical seminars, networking, and product showcase. Select “Schedule” for an overall timetable for the week’s events as well as links to downloadable PDF files of the NASCC Schedule-At-A-Glance and the NASCC Final Program.
Don’t miss out on this once-a-year opportunity to learn the latest techniques, see the most innovative products, and network with your peers and clients. And, don’t forget about those PDHs (Professional Development Hours); you can earn up to 28 of them at The Conference. Visit the NASCC website at www.aisc.org/nascc for the most thorough information about the conference.
