JLC LIVE New England Hosts Largest Show in Its History

Apr 18, 2014


JLC LIVE New England 2014, held March 21-22 at the Rhode Island Convention Center, boasted the biggest show floor in the event’s 19 year history. Catering to the residential builder and remodeler, the Rhode Island Convention Center saw an unprecedented number of exhibitors, sold out show floor space, as well as the event’s most active exhibit hall with over 120 live action clinic and demonstration sessions. Over four dozen conference sessions were held in conjunction with the event spanning four days, March 19-22.

“This was such a great show. We were elated to present more space and more exhibitors to our attendees while offering the education they need to put their business in a position to succeed”, remarked Show Director, Jayne Dalton.

The event totaled 57,818 square feet including manufacturer exhibits as well as live education seen by nearly 7,200 attendees. JLC LIVE’s one-of-a-kind building clinics, exhibitor demonstrations, and Propane Innovation Pavilion presented best practice techniques, never before seen products, and methods to make attendees more efficient and skilled at their craft.

JLC LIVE New England saw growth in its Student Program as well. Nearly 450 emerging young professionals crowded the Ballroom gaining valuable information at an exclusive morning presentation conducted by industry leader, Sakrete. “…This year’s JLC Live show was such a great experience…Hanley Wood and other sponsors of the show deserve thanks and recognition for investing in the future of the building industry,” said Patrick Bowen of Providence Career and Technical Academy. Students were then able to access the show floor, attend clinics and demos, and network with business professionals.

JLC LIVE returns to the Rhode Island Convention Center March 20-21, 2015.
