NASCC 2018: Debuting Our Newest Yield Link Connection

This year the NASCC (North American Steel Construction Conference) will be in Baltimore, Maryland. The conference is the annual educational and networking event for the structural steel industry, which attracts attendees and exhibitors from all over the world. With more than 130 sessions this year, the conference will provide attendees the opportunity to learn the latest in research, design, technology and best practice in the steel industry.


Designers will hear updates on current specification, research and existing projects. With the construction industry facing labor shortage in both design and construction, this conference affords designers the chance to discover tools than can help improve productivity.

Builders can participate in discussions on best practice and learn from case studies. More than 240 exhibitors will showcase state-of-the-art equipment in the 70,000-square-foot exhibit space.
Simpson Strong-Tie (Booth #204) will debut the expansion of the successful all-bolted Yield-Link® connection. Stop by to see the latest in moment frame design, and cold-formed steel connectors such as the new steel header hanger and drift clips.
