Raise the Stakes: the 2017 BCMC Show is Here

It’s almost here: this year’s BCMC will be hosted in Omaha. From October 24th to October 27th, leaders in the component industry will gather to learn from each other, build knowledge and resources, and push the industry forward to create stronger, safer structures for their customers. This year’s theme? “Raise the Stakes”! Visitors can look forward to a fun, innovative show. The fun, friendly Midwestern city of Omaha is familiar territory for MiTek, and for anyone who follows business and investment trends, as the home of Berkshire Hathaway.


Learn From the Best in the Industry

As with most BCMC shows, there’s always something new to learn. Educational sessions allow attendees to benefit from others’ expertise. No matter what challenges your business faces, there is a session for you: learn how to implement Lean Principles with BJ Louws of Louws Truss, or hear more about how to lead today’s designers with Tony Acampa of Shelter Systems. Learning labs and roundtables supplement the educational sessions and keep visitors’ schedules jam-packed.  Then, of course, there’s the show floor, where visitors will want to spend time getting to know the names and faces of the industry.

Outside of the show floor and the closed sessions, there will also be the annual 5K—and undoubtedly, a bevy of happy hours.

Discover Omaha

As always, the host city will play a starring role in visitors’ experience of BCMC. Omaha, Nebraska is home to the only museum on Latino art and culture in the Midwest, as well as the Strategic Air Command and Aerospace Museum. It is split by the Missouri River and hosts four Fortune 500 companies. It’s also a great place to order a steak. Be sure to spend some time walking around the host city of this year’s show—as you take in the collective experience of an industry and find out how to Raise the Stakes.
