Hosted by AISC, its members and partners, SteelDay is the structural steel industry’s largest networking and educational event for the design and construction community and the public.


Architects, engineers, contractors, specifiers, university faculty and students and the general public visited steel mills, fabricators, service centers, galvanizers and other steel facilities, and even actual job sites and special events in major cities, to see the industry’s processes and innovations firsthand and learn directly from industry experts.
