There will also be a student lunch, featuring speaker Conrad Paulson of Wiss, Janney, Elstner Associates (WJE).

The exhibit hall includes a cyber café and plays host to exhibitor demonstrations on October 14 and 15. Attendance is expected to comprise more than 2000 engineers, architects, contractors, and manufacturers.
