For the second year, the International Code Council (ICC) renews its commitment as the Conference Sponsor for Building Innovation 2017: The National Institute of Building Sciences Fifth Annual Conference and Expo. As a membership association of building safety professionals dedicated to protecting the property, health and safety of people worldwide, ICC’s sponsorship of the Conference helps to support the Institute’s mission to bring together representatives from the entire building community to collaborate on industry issues. Building Innovation 2017, to be held January 9-12, 2017, at the Mandarin Oriental in Washington, D.C., will focus on Collaborating for a High-Performing Future.
ICC is a Sustaining Organization Member of the Institute and ICC representatives participate in leadership roles on a number of Institute councils and committees, as well as the Institute Board of Directors. Since the Institute’s founding more than four decades ago, ICC and the Institute have collaborated on numerous projects to improve the safety of U.S. communities.
Building Innovation 2017 gives building professionals from across the industry the chance to witness the Institute’s impact on the industry, interact with industry experts and innovators, gain a wealth of information through educational programs, earn continuing education units, share their expertise and experiences, and participate in developing solutions.
Conference attendees take part in creating solutions for the built environment. Plan to be there where Science meets Design® for a compelling program featuring various educational sessions presented by the Institute’s councils and committees. The entire team of building professionals will work together and gain insights into the different aspects of high performance and resiliency. Credit-building educational sessions, idea-sharing networking events, stimulating technology demonstrations and inspiring award ceremonies are all on the Conference schedule.
As top sponsor, ICC will be featured throughout the Conference venue and on the Exhibit Hall floor. There are many other opportunities for sponsorships and exhibit spaces during Building Innovation 2017. Companies interested in showing their support for the Institute and the building community can reserve a sponsorship and/or exhibitor space online.
