METALCON, the metal construction industry’s largest international event for metal construction products, technologies, and solutions, has announced the retirement of Claire Kilcoyne, vice president of tradeshows, after 35 years of dedicated service to the metal construction industry.
“Building long-lasting relationships is the foundation of Kilcoyne’s approach to business and maintaining those relationships, whether it be speakers, exhibitors, contractors, media, or event staff, is what makes our show the most successful and largest international event in the metal construction industry,” said Frank Stasiowski FAIA, owner and CEO of PSMJ Resources and METALCON.
“Kilcoyne always has her eye on new ideas for innovative, live, and interactive additions to the show each year,” continued Stasiowski. “Because of her hard work and dedication, more than 100 associations, 25 media outlets, and 500 manufacturers support the event attended by approximately 5,000 metal construction professionals each year.”
“The friendships and memories made will be long-lasting, and there are many. The opportunity to have taken this event around the country and watch it grow in so many dimensions has been beyond rewarding,” said Kilcoyne. “Thank you to all who have supported me and for the successes we have shared together over the years.”
Joining METALCON as vice president of events is conference and tradeshow planner, Judy Geller. She is a seasoned professional with more than 25 years of experience as a strategist, producer, and marketer in the conference and tradeshow industry.
