“By all standards and measurements, CONSTRUCT 2013 and the CSI Annual Convention was a success,” stated Tom Cindric, CONSTRUCT Vice President. “We continue to fine-tune the content and activities to anticipate the needs of today’s commercial building professionals. There was a very positive and optimistic buzz on the show floor.
