SEE WHAT PAST EXHIBITORS HAVE TO SAY…
“I have been going to the CSC Building Expo and No Frills Show since I started with my company 22 years ago and it is one of the best events that I attend over the year. Having a condensed show, with the key decision makers in attendance, provides great value to an exhibitor and we have benefited over the years from this. There is no time wasted and provides a fantastic avenue to create a new relationship, or allows individuals to “catch up” on new products and systems. There is no time wasted which is extremely important for all in attendance, whether it is an exhibitor, Specifier, or student.
Also, I must say the horseradish during the luncheon isn’t too bad either.”
W. R. Meadows, Inc.
“The CSC Building Expo is one of the best trade shows we exhibit in. The show attracts key Specification Writers, Architects and Engineers and is a great opportunity to discuss new technology or product updates with them all in one afternoon. This show is an excellent value. We especially like the Pinnacle Booth space. It allows us to create a dedicated area to for attendees to discuss project issues or concerns.”

See what past attendees had to say…
'As a student attending my first CSC Building Expo recently, I very quickly discovered the value of the event while being engaged by organizers and attendees alike. Thanks to the guidance and networks of those individuals, I walked away with a job interview for what has proven to be my current role. Now I look forward to the Expo as an opportunity to learn about new products, stay on top of industry standards, and continue to connect with the network of people that make the industry what it is.'
“CSC Building Expo is a great show, with a varied group of Exhibitors. There is access to both new product and the industry usuals. The layout is spacious, you never feel like you’re standing on top of one another and you have great access to the Exhibitors. I highly recommend the Luncheon, the food is good and the Keynote speaker is usually excellent and relevant to the industry as a whole. The sessions were interesting and informative and I’ve been told that they are also accredited. They aren’t lying when they say it’s the best one day show in the industry.”
