Many thanks to exhibitors and attendees alike for making BCMC 2014 a great success! Last week’s show focused on “gearing up for growth,” a fitting theme for an event that grew by leaps and bounds – showcasing the biggest show floor in five years and welcoming 40 percent more individual component manufacturers than last year. 

Representatives from 92 exhibiting companies traveled to Charlotte from all over the world to reach 586 individual component manufacturers representing, 307 manufacturing locations, with their best innovations for moving our industry forward!  In total, 1091 people attended BCMC this year.

“This is the opportunity, once a year, for our industry to come together and be stronger.  It’s a time to reflect on last year’s challenges, but more importantly to collaborate with fellow industry leaders and find solutions to improve and grow your business,” said Baird Quisenberry, 2014 BCMC Chair. “I am proud to be a part of a unique industry that is thriving again.  We literally get to be a part of building the future and providing hope for individuals, businesses and families.”

In addition to an engaging show floor, BCMC boasted many standing-room-only educational sessions, which will be featured in the December issue of SBC Magazine.

Jess Lohse of Rocky Mountain Truss once again provided day-by-day updates from BCMC, including results of the BCMC Build 5K, the SBCA Annual Meeting award winners and his take on various sessions and activities.

“BCMC is back!" said Quisenberry. "The show floor was filled with enthusiasm and great hope for the future.”
