Every year, The California Construction Expo (CalCon) brings together hundreds of industry professionals to build relationships with the state’s leading government agencies as well as to network with other companies in the private sector.

This message was reinforced by the keynote speaker, Mike Ebeling, recipient of the Muhammad Ali Humanitarian of the Year Award and listed as one of The Creativity 50’s most influential creative people.
