Register early for the first-ever Minnesota Construction Industry Conference
Early-bird registration is now open for the first-ever Minnesota Construction Industry Conference to be held on February 6, 2014, at the Ramada Inn Mall of America, Bloomington.
The State of Minnesota and its construction industry partners will host the one-day conference and provide educational and networking opportunities for highway/heavy, commercial building and residential contractors, plus informative general sessions for the entire construction industry. The event will update construction industry members about current regulations and rules and provide an opportunity for attendees to share ideas with the state officials about how to build a better Minnesota.
Along with the general sessions, each construction-industry sector – highway/heavy, commercial building and residential – will have five workshops. Planned session topics include: business development, building code changes, contracting with the state, licensing and compliance, safety and health compliance and consultation, workforce development, and a panel discussion with state commissioners. Also, state subject matter experts will be available for one-on-one sessions to answer contractor questions.
The construction conference will also feature a trade show of industry-related exhibitors and sponsors. Continuing education units are available for some of the residential construction workshops.
Registration cost for the conference is $79 before Dec. 31, 2013. Starting Jan. 1, 2014, the cost is $99. Registration includes general sessions, workshops, 1-on-1 with the State sessions (optional), all conference materials, continental breakfast and lunch.
