Approximately 1trillion dollars is spent in the construction industry annually. NCTA is committed to bringing more of those dollars to our members and partners. We are accomplishing this based on several different factors all with a vision of improving our industry and strengthening our members. NCTA has created a community that works from within whenever possible. Most vendors and suppliers have offered special or national pricing for our members which creates loyalty from our members. It is time we not only create new customers but, more importantly long-term relationships.
The NCTA National Convention & Trade Show will be a unique and value-packed opportunity for suppliers and vendors to take their services and products directly to the segment that uses them.
NCTA is the only ALL TRADES society and we will reach millions of construction and real estate professionals in 2016. From general contractors to fix and flip real estate investors, we will eventually touch them all creating optimal exposure for our sponsors and exhibitors.

  • Approximately 1500 attendees / decision makers will attend the 2016 NCTA National Convention in Atlanta Georgia. Most all of them are the decision makers in their business so creating those relationships should be at a premium.
  • Exhibitors will enjoy more than 12 hours of exhibition time over the course of 2 ½ days. Educational workshops will be going on adjacent to the expo hall keeping your potential new customers close.  Networking and breaks areas are just outside the exhibition hall creating a constant flow of traffic through the hall.
  • In addition to exhibit space, there is also multiple other advertising opportunities available to maximize your exposure. All of these are first come first serve… no exceptions.

Keynote Speaker ROSS BERNSTEIN

“The Champion’s Code: Building Relationships Through Life Lessons of Integrity and Accountability from the Sports World to the Business World”

The best-selling author of nearly 50 sports books, Ross Bernstein is an award-winning peak performance business speaker who's keynoted conferences on four continents and has been featured on CNN, ESPN, Fox News, and “CBS This Morning,” as well as in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times and USA Today. Ross' program is based on a series of books he wrote in which he was able to interview more than 500 professional athletes and coaches that all had one thing in common — they were all members of championship teams. In his research he concluded that the same metrics and characteristics that were common among champions in sports, were also common in peak performers in business. As he learned, champions have a very unique DNA — and his goal in this keynote session is to get audience members thinking about their own DNA — and about the DIFFERENTIATORS they possess which would ultimately lead customers to CHOOSE to do business with them. At the core of his message is the simple fact that we like to do business with people who we trust, who we like, and who just “get it” — CHAMPIONS. In an engaging, provocative, and visually entertaining style, Ross will use inspirational stories and poignant life lessons from the world of sports to show attendees how to:

• Create a “culture of excellence” by giving extraordinary customer service...
• Generate momentum by utilizing the "currency of karma"...
• Follow their moral compasses to win "the right way," with respect and integrity...
• Be better leaders and create more "buy-in" by embracing change and failure...
• Evolve from "order takers" to "trusted partners" by enhancing the quality of their relationships...
