The 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
