The event will provide opportunities for education and networking as well as an exposition featuring state-of-the-art innovations, technologies and principles in cold-formed steel framing. The two-day conference is the only one of its kind dedicated to the cold-formed steel framing industry.

Topics covered in the educational sessions include mid-rise construction, acoustics, Building Information Modeling (BIM), clips/connectors/anchors, a cold-formed steel design forum, and more. Registration information and Expo program details are available at www.cfsei.org. 

As a special promotion, the first 10 full-conference registrants will receive a complimentary set of AISI D100-13, Cold-Formed Steel Design Manual, 2013 Edition, valued at $170.00. Details are available on the CFSEI website registration page. 

The Cold-Formed Steel Engineers Institute comprises hundreds of structural engineers and other design professionals who are finding a better way to produce safe and efficient designs for commercial and residential structures with cold-formed steel. CFSEI members work together to develop and evolve industry standards and design methods, produce and issue technical bulletins, and provide seminars and online training to improve the knowledge and skills base of engineers and design professionals.
