ALEXANDRIA, VA -- The CSI Show at Construct America debuted in Chicago in April as one of the nation's largest exhibits of non-residential construction products, technologies and services. The exhibition drew more than 7,408 people to 1,025 exhibit booths.

The TFM Show, which is owned by Group C Communications, co-located with the CSI Show at Construct America and drew 2,327 registrants and 183 exhibit booths.

"The debut of our Construct America platform, which enables other product trade shows to co-locate with the CSI Show, benefited both exhibitors and attendees," said CSI Executive Director Karl Borgstrom, Ph.D. "The goal was to better serve those who create and sustain the non-residential built environment by providing more information and education than any one show could alone. We achieved that goal, according to the feedback we're getting from participants." The next show is set for April 2004 in Chicago.
