Shine a bright light on your organization’s solutions for the building community and gain industry exposure during Building Innovation 2014: The National Institute of Building Sciences Conference & Expo. During the week of January 6-10, 2014, the Institute will bring together a broad spectrum of industry professionals in Washington, D.C., to explore Advancing Life-Cycle Performance and kick-off a year-long celebration of the Institute’s 40th Anniversary.

It’s the perfect opportunity to show your contributions to the building industry and your support for the Institute’s efforts to improve the built environment.

Attendance for the inaugural Conference last January exceeded expectations by more than 40%. Nearly 570 industry professionals attended; and sponsors, exhibitors and advertisers were given substantial recognition through prominent signage, a strategically located Exhibit Hall and a full-color Conference Book provided to every attendee. This second annual event is designed to deliver even more audience-requested programming and activities. Building Innovation 2014 will take place at the Marriott Washington Wardman Park – a larger venue – to accommodate the expected increase in the number of attendees for 2014.

The program for Building Innovation 2014 will feature 10 symposia, each focusing on different aspects of the Conference theme. A Plenary Symposium is scheduled to bring together the entire audience to explore collaboration for better solutions. Technology demonstrations, educational workshops and networking events will also be part of the Conference. Planned annual meetings to be held by each of the Institute’s councils during Building Innovation 2014 create the potential for attendance by a significant percentage of the Institute’s 1,000 active members.

Based on the success of last year’s event, once again the Exhibit Hall will be located just outside of the meeting spaces and an Exhibitor Reception will take place on the exhibit floor to provide 100% exposure to all Conference attendees. This strategic location and networking event give Exhibitors the best opportunity to collect qualified leads and engage participants in one-on-one conversations, presentations and demonstrations.

For the second year, McGraw-Hill Construction has taken the lead role as the Conference sponsor, spotlighting their solid reputation as a reliable and trusted industry information resource. We invite you to share the spotlight and have your organization highlighted during Building Innovation 2014 by sponsoring an event, exhibiting in the Exhibit Hall or advertising in the Conference Book. Take this affordable opportunity to promote awareness of your organization’s products, services, technologies and programs among industry professionals and stakeholders. Opportunities to shine start at only $300!
