How can you help?

(Small print — you must be present to win raffle prizes).

History of METALCON Giving Back

METALCON has been “giving back” since 1995 to national and local charities, proudly having donated upwards of half a million dollars in goods, services, and/or funds to non-profit organizations and worthy causes serving local host communities. When METALCON was last in Las Vegas in 2017, the metal construction community generously came together to raise $4,000 for Semper Fi & America’s Fund. We hope you’ll join us again this year in giving back to the Las Vegas community to show our appreciation for the many years of being an excellent host to the show.
