The 49th annual CSI Show & Convention will be held in Chicago’s McCormick Place, April 19-23. The event, which is sponsored by the Construction Specification Institute, serves as a gathering place for all members of the commercial design and construction industry, including contractors, architects, specifiers, engineers, facility managers, project managers, and construction managers. The “New World of MasterFormat” is the cornerstone of the 49th annual meeting.

The CSI Show is one of the three operating under the Construct America umbrella concept designed to bring larger numbers of related exhibitors and attendees to a single location. The Mason Contractors of America’s Masonry Showcase is participating for the first time. The third member of the exhibition extravaganza is the Total Facility Management Show.

The three organizations will combine to present more than 130 educational programs and several hundred exhibit booths.
