More than $500 million in public and utility infrastructure construction projects to be awarded to contractors in 2017 will be showcased by the purchasers of these projects at the 2017 Investment in Infrastructure Expo to be held February 28, 2017 at the St. Charles Convention Center. Hosted by the SITE Improvement Association, the Expo will feature presentations of upcoming infrastructure projects by the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT), Metropolitan Sewer District (MSD), Ameren Missouri, Spire (formerly Laclede Gas), St. Louis County, St. Charles County, Jefferson County, Great Rivers Greenway and more. In addition, the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis will present its annual economic forecast for the construction industry in the St. Louis region and the Midwest.
“This Expo will be the single best opportunity for contractors and others to really see what the local construction market will look like for their company in 2017 and beyond,” said Terry Briggs, Executive Director of SITE. “By bringing all these major purchasers of infrastructure construction projects together in the same place, contractors can learn the details about bidding opportunities, meet with the purchasers of these projects and network with other infrastructure sector contractors and suppliers in a half day of outstanding business development activities. This is much more comprehensive than any business expo events we have hosted in the past, and we are expecting well over 500 attendees, sponsors and presenters.”
Individual tickets cost $30. Sponsorship opportunities are also available for equipment dealers and suppliers, as well as for construction, architecture, engineering and other professional services firms. There will be 70 booths in the Sponsor Showcase area at the Expo, and a variety of sponsorship packages are available. Drinks and appetizers will also be available to all attendees as part of the admission price.
