The 2017 Tilt-Up Convention and Expo is the premier gathering of the global tilt-up industry.  As always, this year's event is designed to provide attendees with valuable education that can be applied directly to their next tilt-up job.

Post-event surveys show 92% of attendees estimate they will save their company or clients at least $2,000 on their next project as a direct result of their attendance. 35% of respondents say they will save at least $5,000 and 17% say they will save more than $10,000 on their next project alone. Most importantly, well over 90% of attendees say they learned something at convention that will make their jobsite, or that of their client, safer.

"If you do not learn something at Convention that will at least save you the cost of attendance on your next job, you were not listening!"- Laurence Smith, JW Lindsay

Participation in this important industry event also ensures effective utilization of the greatest, and most diverse network of tilt-up professionals on the planet. The connections made between attendees prove to be very beneficial. Post-event surveys conclude that 67% of participants make new connections that will help them grow professionally, 60% make new connections that their company or firm may collaborate with on future projects, and 73% make connections that could help troubleshoot issues on their next project.

Exhibition Hours

Exhibition and Sponsorship Opportunities


Though destinations often are said to offer something for everyone, the Miami area offers multiple enticements for everyone: The trendy nightlife of South Beach, bejeweled by the eye candy of the Art Deco district. The bustle of Calle Ocho and the highly caffeinated energy of Little Havana. The plush hotels of Miami Beach and the historic hideaways of Coral Gables.

Seemingly endless shopping opportunities in modern, sprawling malls and the quiet, personal attention offered by the family-owned shops of Coconut Grove and many other corners of the region. The lures of deep-sea fishing and golf and tennis.

Major league football, basketball, hockey and baseball. Boat shows and auto racing. Art festivals and outdoor food and wine extravaganzas. An international airport and the world's busiest cruise port.

The Miami area offers all of this, and so much more.

Fontainebleau Miami Beach

The TCA has reserved a block of rooms at what "Travel + Leisure" has named the #1 hotel in Miami Beach: Fontainebleau Miami Beach.

Situated on oceanfront Collins Avenue in the heart of Millionaire's Row, Fontainebleau Miami Beach is one of the most historically and architecturally significant hotels on Miami Beach, Florida. Its iconic design is a spectacular blend of Miami's glamorous golden era and stylish modern luxury. A revered Miami Beach landmark for more than half a century, Morris Lapidus' emblematic curvilinear building sets a new standard for business and pleasure.

As always, rooms will fill quickly, reserve yours today!

Getting there

The nearest airport to the Fontainebleau Miami Beach is the Miami International Airport (MIA).

Miami International Airport (MIA), located on 3,230 acres of land near downtown Miami, is operated by the Miami-Dade Aviation Department and is the property of Miami-Dade County government.
