The Construction Showcase of Maine – NAWIC Maine’s Premier Event

AUGUSTA- National Association of Women in Construction, Maine Chapter (NAWIC – Maine) announced today it is once again holding its’ annual Construction Trade Show.  The event, which was formerly The Construction Expo, is expected to draw hundreds of businesses and individuals to the one-day event on April 11, at the Augusta Civic Center. 

The Showcase will feature numerous industry displays, career opportunities fair and educational and training opportunities for business owners.   As in years’ past, the event will also be the platform to raise awareness and funds for workforce development.  Each year NAWIC Maine has awarded scholarships to deserving Maine students entering a construction related field.  NAWIC Maine incorporated a new scholarship in honor of Joyce Newman in 2016.  

The Joyce Newman Scholarship will be awarded at the event. The Construction Showcase which already has attracted major sponsors, including Auburn Concrete, Cross Insurance, and Jordan Equipment Company, is planning to provide vendors and guests with improved set-up and operations. And through partnerships, with the AGC Maine, Maine State Chamber of Commerce and Burdick Training & Consulting, there is also a new focus on enhancing event opportunities.  Training will be woven into the event alongside The Associated General Contractors of Maine’s Build Maine Awards.  The entire event will be held in the main auditorium this year for the first time ever.

NAWIC Maine remains committed to its long-time alliance with Associated General Contractors of Maine.  Robin Wood, NAWIC Maine’s Immediate Past President and an employee of Reed & Reed commented. “We are extremely proud of our strong partnership with AGC.  We respect that the two organizations have a mutually beneficial relationship, and we believe that AGC’s Build Maine Awards Banquet is a wonderful recognition of industry efforts. NAWIC is very pleased that AGC continues its tradition of holding that special banquet during our Construction Showcase Event.”  

On-line registration is open for all interested vendors and Sponsorships are available as well.  Showcase attendees can also access tickets to the event on the website.
