The Blue Book is continuing to bring general contractors and local subcontractors and suppliers together with The Blue Book GC Showcase and has officially published the dates and locations for the Fall 2008 program. The attached schedule provides the specific places, dates and times for all of The Blue Book's Fall GC Showcases taking place in 17 regions this September.

These free networking events provide a unique forum for general contractors to exhibit their companies and find subcontractors and suppliers for their current and upcoming projects. The local companies who attend have the opportunity to meet with buyers and decision-makers responsible for hiring subcontractors and buying supplies for construction projects in their area. There is no cost to exhibit or attend and an exhibit space and table are provided for participating GCs.

"The Blue Book GC Showcase has grown tremendously since we first launched these events three years ago. The number of attendees and exhibitors nationwide has exceeded our expectations and I am proud to have made the GC Showcase a standard part of our product offering. These events clearly exemplify The Blue Book's mission to connect buyers and sellers in the commercial construction industry and provide an important service for our customers and general contractors nationwide," explained Rich Johnson, General Manager of The Blue Book.
