We're going virtual...
...and no, it's not another Zoom meeting!

This is the largest gathering dedicated to the cast-in-place concrete foundations industry.  A proven pinnacle event each year, Concrete Foundations Convention brings together the top professional concrete contractors working in the residential, light commercial, agricultural and many tangential industries.

We’ve taken you to the mountaintop…literally, these last two years (Utah 2018 and Colorado 2019).  This year we are excited to welcome you to take you to a whole new world…virtually! 2020 has demanded us to be innovative in the way we work, communicate, learn and gather. Although we are saddened by the harsh reality that we are unable to welcome you to Charleston (find out more), the CFA is proud and excited to announce that this year, we are moving Convention to a safe, interactive virtual platform! With the current state of the country, the risks for you, your family and your employees to travel and gather are still real. The decision to go virtual was not only an easy decision, but one we are proud to make.

Knowing we are unable to gather in person this summer, the CFA is providing you with a fantastic alternative to connect with your peers and continue to better your business! The Concrete Foundations Convention will take place in a virtual, avatar based world, with all of the professionalism, energy and enthusiasm that you've come to expect. Join us for three days of education, networking, exhibits*, awards and much more - all from the comfort of your own home or office!

 

What do you mean by "avatar based"?

We're so glad you asked!

For those of you who are not familiar with the term, an avatar is an image used to represent a person in a virtual world.

 

 

The CFA staff has worked diligently with the Board of Directors to select a virtual platform that is not only easy to use, but one that allows you to have an actual presence at the event. With just the click of a few buttons, you will be placed directly into the virtual world and be ready to explore and interact!

Your avatar will be your eyes and your voice will be carried into the world through it. You will have the ability to easily design and dress your avatar so it looks just like you, or you can make it look like the person you've always wanted to be! You'll find it simple to use your arrow keys to walk around the virtual campus and check out the auditorium for general sessions, visit the expo hall to chat with the exhibitors, or make your way to the conference hall for more focused discussions. You can even take a quick break and head to the beach and soak in the views, or take the boat out for an afternoon get-away! Don't worry, you will have plenty of time to become familiar with the platform before the event starts. 

We believe fully in the ability to connect unlike we've ever done before. In addition to the virtual platform being fun and engaging, we are fully committed to providing you with invaluable education content, new industry leading technology, and unlimited networking opportunities.
