CHICAGO - Registration is now open for 2022 NASCC: The Steel Conference

We're back - live and in-person. Registration is now open for the 2022 NASCC: The Steel Conference scheduled for Denver from March 23-25 (

"Due to COVID-19, the past two Steel Conferences were converted to fully virtual events," explained Scott Melnick, a senior vice president at AISC. "While thousands of designers and others involved in the steel industry were able to attend online educational seminars, this year we're committed to holding an in-person event, complete with more than 200 technical sessions and more than 235 exhibitors."

AISC is committed to following all local, state, and national requirements for safely holding the event. You can view the current requirements at For those who don't wish to attend in person, we'll be streaming selected sessions.

The Steel Conference is the premier educational and networking event for the structural steel industry, bringing together structural engineers, structural steel fabricators, erectors, detailers, and architects. One low registration fee gains you access to all of the technical sessions, the keynote addresses, the T.R. Higgins Lecture, and the exhibitor showcase.

Technical sessions range from a panel discussion on what the steel industry is doing to reduce its carbon footprint to the latest information on designing steel base plates. Sessions range from a focus on design & analysis to business sessions to safety. The event also encompasses the NISD Steel Detailing Conference, QualityCon, the World Steel Bridge Symposium, and the SSRC Annual Stability Conference. You can see the full schedule, along with session descriptions, by visiting

Unlike many conferences that simply issue a call for papers, the Steel Conference's planning committee meets to determine the hottest topics and then seeks out the premier experts and presenters on these topics.

Registration for AISC members is $420 beginning today (it increases $15 each week, so be sure to register early!) with discounts available for additional registrants from the same firm. Attendees can receive up to 17.5 PDHs and there are pre-conference short courses and tours available. Full registration also includes lunch on Wednesday and Thursday, the Welcome Reception on Wednesday evening, and the conference bar hop/dinner on Thursday.
