Raleigh, NC – The 29th RCI International Convention & Trade Show will be held March 20-25, 2014, at the Hilton Anaheim and the Anaheim Convention Center, in Anaheim California. 

The annual event will feature over 25 hours of educational seminars, live product demonstrations, and a two-day trade show with over 130 exhibitors. Programs are approved to yield continuing education credits for members of RCI and the American Institute of Architects. "It's a great opportunity to earn a full year's worth of continuing education credit at one event," said William Myers, RCI's marketing director. "RCI's consultant members will visit the trade show to discover 
the latest products for designing and repairing today's building envelopes."
