METROCON Expo & Conference has definitely established a solid reputation as an exceptionally affordable and vital business-building venue for the A&D industry.

METROCON Expo & Conference is experiencing its strongest exhibitor sales in its 10-year history. By the end of the first month of sales, the volunteer-driven trade show sold 336 of its 388 booths to vendors looking to connect with interior designers, architects, facility managers, students, and other vital design industry members in the corporate, residential, hospitality, multifamily, retail, healthcare, and institutional design fields.

“The committee and I are overwhelmed with the response from the design community. This year’s booth sales figures put us 32% ahead of where we were at this same point in time in 2011,” said Presiding Chair Rosemarie René, ASID, RID.

Not only have the expo’s exhibitor sales been breaking records, but the conference also received 20% more continuing education presentation submissions than it did in 2011, and 93% of the 2012 sponsorships sold in less than 90 days.

“The increased support we have been seeing this year reflects the growing respect that the industry has for our show. METROCON Expo & Conference has definitely established a solid reputation as an exceptionally affordable and vital business-building venue for the A&D industry,” said Co-Chair Dana Smith, Associate IIDA.

The event serves as a model for industry collaboration as it is organized through landmark volunteer partnership between the Texas Chapter of ASID [American Society of Interior Designers] and the Texas-Oklahoma Chapter of IIDA [International Interior Design Association]. Due to the extreme dedication of a handful of volunteers who make up the METROCON Committee, as well as the generosity of a variety of show sponsors – including 2012 Media Sponsor, Design Guide – prices for both Exhibitors and Attendees are exceedingly low relative to similar events around the USA.

METROCON12 Expo & Conference will take place at Dallas Market Hall [2200 Stemmons Fwy, Dallas, TX] on Thursday, August 9 & Friday, August 10, 2012.
