Wrapping up a Fun, Productive Week at CONSTRUCT 2016

The building and construction specification community recently descended upon Austin, Texas for the CONSTRUCT trade show and educational conference. The event is is one of only a few national trade shows specifically designed to provide the commercial building team real-world, practical products and education solutions. If you design, build, specify, engineer, renovate or operate in the built environment, you should have been at this event. 

If you followed our #WallTalk hashtag on social media, you likely noticed that ClarkDietrich made the most of its time at CONSTRUCT. In addition to exhibiting, we provided free pedicab rides through downtown Austin to conference attendees. After a long day on the show floor, the pedicabs were perfect vehicles to take a load off and see Austin.  Our magnetic Wall Talk board was also a big hit, as it gave booth visitors an outlet to share with the world how much they loved walls. In fact, the East Bay-Oakland Chapter of CSI listed Wall Talk as one of their Top 10 Moments from the entire event.

And, congratulations Vivian Volz, of Vivian Volz Architectural Specifications, who was the winner of our Apple Watch #WallTalk giveaway by sharing her statement on social media.

We also rounded up the production crew for live tapings of our Between Two Studs web series. We interviewed some of the biggest movers and shakers in the industry.
