Matrix Group Launches 2016 Convention Site for Mechanical Contractors Association of America

January 25, 2016

MCAA Convention HomepageMatrix Group, a digital agency in the Washington DC area specializing in web design, development, AMS, integration, mobile and e-marketing services, announces the launch of the 2016 convention website for the Mechanical Contractors Association of America (MCAA).

MCAA is a membership organization serving over 2,600 contracting companies in heating, air conditioning, refrigeration, plumbing, piping, and mechanical service firms. It helps its membership attain the highest level of managerial and technical expertise through top-quality educational programs and materials.

One of the chief events MCAA uses to serve its membership is its annual convention. The 2016 convention features motivational and inspirational speakers as diverse as Peyton Manning, Shaquille O'Neal and Paralympic athlete Amy Purdy, as well as educational sessions with industry experts.

With such an impressive, enriching event, MCAA needed a clear, compact, and beautiful website to inform members and encourage them to register and attend, and they needed it fast. MCAA's leadership turned to Matrix Group for the solution.

We immediately got to work, proposing a platform and plugins that would make the site not only easy for members to use but easy for MCAA staff to manage. We:

  • Developed a gorgeous branding area with video clips that perfectly illustrate the verve and beauty of the convention and its venue.
  • Implemented the responsive site in the versatile WordPress content management system, creating a site that delivers excellent content no matter what device is used to view it – one that staff can manage with ease.
  • Installed and styled content-slider plugins that allow staff to showcase the dozens of celebrity speakers, educational presenters, and industry sponsors that will make the convention the star event of 2016.

"Matrix did what we couldn't do in-house – developed and launched our Convention website in only a few weeks," said John Gentille, MCAA's CEO. "Through their expertise and professionalism the site was done quickly, better than we imagined, and we enjoyed the process, too. And the result is that our Convention is quickly selling out!"
