BCMC is about so much more than the four walls of the convention center. This year’s show will include unique and informative tours for attendees and their guests to get out and about in Charlotte.

Plant Tours

On Tuesday, October 7, component manufacturers and their guests who are registered for the show have two options for plant tours:

  • Builders FirstSource-Charlotte manufactures wood roof and floor trusses, wall panels and doors. They also distribute glulam beams, LVL, plywood, I-joist and nails/staples/related hardware.
  • H.W. Culp Lumber Company is a third-generation, family-owned lumber mill that produces quality Southern Yellow Pine lumber for wholesale customers.

The maximum capacity for each tour is 50 people, and reservations are taken on a first-come, first-serve basis. You must be at least 18 years of age of older to attend a plant tour.

Spouse/Guest Tour

On Thursday, October 9, while attendees tour all the BCMC exhibit floor has to offer, their spouse/guest can get a “taste” of the Queen City on a walking tour of Uptown Charlotte’s unique urban culinary scene. Great food, local history and amazing architecture will be a feast for the senses as guests meet and greet with shop owners, chefs and culinary artisans. Along the way, tour participants will learn about their craft, receive demonstrations and enjoy a few educational tasting opportunities. We suggest comfortable walking shoes for this approximately three-hour tour.

There’s only one problem: space is limited for these tour opportunities – another great reason to REGISTER TODAY!
