JLC LIVE “Scored Big” in Providence during March Madness

Apr 13, 2016 - Dallas, TX


JLC LIVE New England 2016, held March 16-19 at the Rhode Island Convention Center in Providence, RI, added excitement to the first week of the NCAA Basketball Playoffs, which were held next door at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center.  

From the exhibitors to conference sessions, and student group program to event attendance, the 2016 event echoed the residential construction industry’s growth.  Attendance numbers topped 7,300 and brought together attendees from 44 states and 4 different countries.  In addition to the overall attendance increase, the JLC LIVE Conference Program experienced an exciting 10% increase—hosting over 350 conference attendees during the four days of training sessions, which ranged from carpentry technique, business growth, risk mitigation, and small business finance strategies.   Over the two days of exhibits, attendees learned from leading industry experts and building product manufacturers during on-floor building and installation clinics and product demonstrations, and made valuable connections with over 275 building product manufacturers, distributors, and suppliers.

JLC LIVE New England also partnered with 25 local trade and vocational schools to bring in nearly 600 future tradesmen, as well as countless local association chapters, lumberyards, building suppliers, and manufacturers to bring 1,275 remodelers, builders, contractors, and crews face-to-face with the industry’s top building product manufacturers through our lumberyard and dealer programs.  

JLC LIVE would like to thank the following lumberyards, building suppliers, distributors, and manufacturers for their continued support of the event through their attendance-driving customer programs: A.
