Mount Vernon, Iowa — The Tilt-Up Concrete Association (TCA) — the global authority for the tilt-up concrete construction industry — announced a call for presentations for the 2019 Tilt-Up Convention and Expo. Share your expertise with the tilt-up industry at the 2019 Tilt-Up Convention and Expo, September 26-28, at the Marriott Marquis in Atlanta, Georgia.

TCA is looking for a wide array of topics that are innovative, engaging, inspiring and informative for tilt-up professionals around the world. The TCA’s goal is to offer industry-relevant education to help attendees do their jobs more effectively and make their companies more successful. The TCA is interested in receiving proposals that address current and/or emerging issues confronting tilt-up professionals and the leaders of the industry worldwide.

Convention theme: Rising Expectations

Expectations are rising. Quality once celebrated has been left in the dust by a new level of craftsmanship. Concrete science that has served the building industry well for decades is being transformed by new research, breakthroughs in technology and a better understanding of its performance. Speed of construction that impressed previous generations is now considered average as new levels of efficiency emerge. And once thought of as luxuries, sustainability and resiliency now come standard.

We’re expecting more from our materials and technologies. Owners are expecting more from their builders and designers. Communities are expecting more from their neighbors and developers are expecting more for their dollar.

The 2019 Tilt-Up Convention in Atlanta will celebrate the spirit of the cities symbol, the phoenix. Education will be focused on the rising expectations of those charged with creating our built environment, those designing and building our churches, schools, libraries and places of work. Speakers will feature examples of new technologies, new research and new techniques designed to propel the industry to new heights.
