Don’t Miss Tech Day 2019!

Join us for a union construction technology showcase, which runs 11am-5pm followed by a reception. It is free for both attendees and exhibitors.

Executed by the local Associated General Contractors of America chapter, the Mechanical Contractors Association of Chicago, and the largest United Association local in the country, this event promises to be both relevant and exciting for participants and exhibitors alike.

Our goal for this gathering is to connect union contractors and the people who work within them with top technology experts who offer solutions to increase efficiency and improve work product.
