On March 13, Associated General Contractors (AGC) of Minnesota sponsored a Technology & New Product Fair held at the DoubleTree Hotel.

The fair featured 40 exhibitors and 15 seminars. This was the fair’s first year — AGC felt there was a need to get new technology, products and services out to the industry before the Minnesota construction season gears up.

“The show was great overall. We met a lot of new contacts rather than seeing the same old from other shows. Overall, the show was well planned and we found it a great source for new contacts,” said an exhibitor.
