The 2019 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

Track highlightCarbonCure was founded in 2007 by Rob Niven. Rob had recently graduated with a Masters in Engineering from McGill University, where he studied the benefits of introducing CO2 to fresh concrete. That year, Rob attended a United Nations summit on Climate Change, where he saw a global demand for solutions to reduce carbon emissions. Inspired by the summit, Rob thought to himself, “The scientific community understands that CO2 can be chemically converted to a mineral within concrete. So why can’t we find a way to use CO2 in every-day concrete, and help concrete producers respond to the demand for green building products?” Since 2007, CarbonCure has developed a scalable technology that provides economic advantages to its customers while reducing carbon emissions - truly a win-win solution.
