To Receive Travel Funding

Once again the PCI Foundation is supporting our school program Professors and students who wish to travel to the PCI Convention. This year, I have implemented an application process for the grant to help keep it on track. You can be sent the funds as soon as you register for the convention. It will not be income as long as you send us your receipts after you travel.

We have secured a block of rooms for students & professors at the Hotel Phillips, 106 W 12th St, Kansas City, MO 64105. It is about 2 blocks away from the convention center. You can make your group’s reservations or they can make their own by using the link below. Rooms are $119 a night.

Student Poster Session

Please let executive director Marty McIntyre know if your school plans to have a poster at the show. If so, you will have a poster in Booth #2433, which is in the middle of the show floor, right next to the PCI booth.


Because you are a student and an exhibitor, you should register with a free student membership and then when you get to registration ASK FOR AN EXHIBITOR BADGE HOLDER. If you run into any issues with this ask for Cindi Ward who manages the registration desk, and she will get you sorted out.

You may put up your poster as soon as you arrive at the show. There will be a “space holder” poster for each school where your poster belongs. Please use that space. The best timeframe for putting up your posters is Wednesday between 11 and 5 pm or  Thursday between 8 am and 10 am

Students who participate in Project Precast will not be able to take part in the poster session.

Hotel Phillips exterior same block as Marriott PCI host hotel.webp
