BCMC in Review: SBC Magazine

“This is the best BCMC I have ever been to,” said Dallas Austin of Big C Lumber, a loyal attendee since 2011. 

931 individual component manufacturers (CMs) walked the show floor in Columbus, 102 more attendees than the 2018 BCMC in Milwaukee. Attendees represented 297 companies, with 409 locations. BCMC regularly draws decision-makers for manufacturers from across the continent. This year was no different with 35 percent of attendees identifying as either the owner or primary leader of their company. 

This year’s show boasted the largest exhibit hall since 2007, with plenty of new technology and innovations to share with CMs. 124 suppliers participated this year, up from 106 in 2018, 28 of which were first time exhibitors at BCMC. They brought a total of 699 individuals to the show, up from 572 the year prior, and reserved 66,500 sq. ft of show floor space, an increase of 9,000 sq. ft. over last year. 

“This was a great venue, with so much energy and a lot of activity on the show floor,” said BCMC Committee member April Burt of Simpson Strong-Tie. She said that the value of BCMC was very evident to exhibitors this year. BCMC Committee member Steve Shrader with Hundegger said he enjoyed seeing the new technology and equipment that is pushing the industry forward. “BCMC is the preferred show for us, and I thought this year was a really good show,” he said. “We had really good attendance in our booth and made some really good contacts.”
