Gearing Up for METALCON 2015

This year’s METALCON show in Tampa, Florida will provide the MRA with several opportunities to highlight our market-building program.   Even before the show, we’re reaching out to contractors across the US and specifically in the Florida market via email and direct mail marketing to invite them to visit us in Tampa and even offer them free admittance to the show.  Click here for more information on that program.

Free Admission

We’re working with industry expert Frank Farmer once again to present a two day intensive “Boot Camp” training session for contractors.  This interactive program is designed to help contractors make the most of their marketing dollars and fully utilize the MRA’s wide range contractor benefits.


The MRA will also have a booth on the METALCON show floor where MRA members will be able to meet with show attendees and encourage program participation.

Finally, MRA has been invited to present as part of the METALCON Showcase program, giving us an opportunity to share the MRA story with the show’s attendees and explain why contractors and the industry overall benefits from MRA’s national marketing efforts.
