The 2020 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.
