The successor to NCMA’s annual ICON Expo trade exhibit will debut February 6, 2014, at the Westin Mission Hill Resort in Palm Springs, Calif. “Connect, Negotiate, Learn” are the key components of the three-day ICON-Xchange, where manufacturers and service providers will host suites to provide what NCMA officials note is “a collaborative environment focused on the concrete masonry and hardscapes industry. An innovative marketplace featuring the latest products and solutions and a learning forum providing visionary thought leadership, industry best practices and one-on-one practical tips from industry peers.”

NCMA announced the ICON-Xchange format earlier this year, just after concluding ICON Expo, co-located with the 2013 Precast Show in Indianapolis. The new event will be “right-sized,” the association notes, creating a completely new environment that facilitates productive exchanges between masonry and hardscape unit producers and their suppliers and service providers.
