Designed by contractors in your business, our goal is to provide takeaways for everyone attending.

The registration fee is only $595 – a special value available only to our members and exhibitors.

The sixth report in the MCAA Technology Research Series provides an introduction for members who are considering their first layout system purchase. It is also a valuable evaluation tool for those who are considering an upgrade to their existing system. Like the other reports in MCAA’s Technology Research Series, the report was written by our partners at JBKLabs exclusively for MCAA.

Our Technology Initiative

We’re in a time when disruptive change has come to our industry – change that creates new markets and new value propositions, but also disrupts our existing way of doing business. We have the option of looking at this change in one of two ways. We can consider it to be disruptive stress, or we can look at it as “disruptive opportunity.” We have the opportunity to seek out new ways to improve productivity. The opportunity to look for new ways of getting the job done better and faster. And the opportunity to seek out new technologies that simply do things we never thought were possible. Ignoring change is simply not the best option if we want our companies to continue to be as successful as they can be. That’s why MCAA created the Technology Initiative. With your association's help our members can understand the challenges of technological change and exploit the opportunities it creates. For more information, contact Sean McGuire.
