Top Eight Reasons to Attend the 2015 NASCC: The Steel Conference

The 2014 NASCC took place in Toronto but returns to the States--Nashville, to be exact--March 25-27, 2015.

Need a reason to attend the 2015 NASCC: The Steel Conference? We’ll give you eight:

Reason #1: Value
One low registration fee includes the keynote address, T.R. Higgins Lecture, SSRC sessions, the Bridge Track, and new sessions on how to work on federal projects. Registration includes more than 100 technical sessions, two lunches, and the Welcome Reception. But register early -- fees increase each week by $10.

Reason #2: Networking, networking, networking
You'll be hard pressed to find a better conference where you can meet more designers and steel contractors -- this is an opportunity to meet new colleagues and catch up with old friends.

Reason #3: Knowledge
Take advantage of this once-a-year chance to expand your knowledge in your profession by attending our dynamic, expert-led seminars.

Reason #4: Continuing education credit
Learn from leading structural steel experts while you earn continuing education credit. The main conference offers 16 PDHs while you can obtain another 4 by attending pre-conference short courses. Learn about the latest trends and techniques, discover new solutions, and much more.

Reason #5: Location, location, location
Nashville is a great destination; easy to get to, inexpensive and fun. This year's conference is right in the heart of downtown, just steps from the Country Music Hall of Fame and the city's famous honky tonks.

Reason #6: Fabulous keynote
This year's keynote is designed to explain why the generations are different and how to turn those differences into productivity. Hailed as a "leadership guru" by the Washington Post, Haydn Shaw will help you get the most out of the "texting" generation.

Reason #7: Chia-Ming Uang
This year's T.R. Higgins lecture features Chia-Ming Uang from the University of California-San Diego discussing a flexibility-based design method for column stiffeners and their associated welds. This is a great opportunity to hear from one of the leading experts on seismic design.

Reason #8: Steel industry's largest exhibit hall
With more than 200 exhibitors expected, this is a great opportunity to learn more about the latest products ranging from structural engineering software to fabrication equipment. You'll see demonstrations of design software and machines cutting steel. And you'll see the latest in welding, bolting, coating, and software technology.
