Following its first-ever call for abstracts for its Building Innovation Conference Series, the National Institute of Building Sciences has developed a program schedule to engage the entire building community and foster collaboration during Building Innovation 2017: The Institute’s Fifth Annual Conference and Expo, to be held January 9-12, 2017, at the Mandarin Oriental in Washington, D.C. 

This was the first time the Institute had issued an open call for presenters to Building Innovation and the response was higher than expected, with more than 150 abstracts received. After a review and selection process that included feedback from across the Institute’s program areas, the Building Innovation 2017 Planning Team came up with a schedule that supports the theme of the event—Collaborating for a High-Performance Future—and the goals of the Institute, while providing an exciting, balanced, interactive and educational event. 

Educational sessions, taking place over three days of the Conference, cover a wide range of topics that are relevant to the industry as a whole and will unite the entire community in developing solutions for the built environment. The program is designed to allow attendees the opportunity to select topics covered in individual sessions that are best suited for their interest and custom tailor their Conference education to get the most out of Building Innovation 2017. View the preliminary schedule of events.

In addition to the credit-building educational sessions, Building Innovation 2017 offers those attending the chance to hear from industry leaders during keynote addresses; network with industry colleagues during social events; view the latest in industry products and services on the Exhibit Hall floor; gain inspiration from industry pioneers honored during two award ceremonies and sit in on working Council and Committee meetings to witness the Institute in action. Plan to be there where Science meets Design. Conference registration opens on September 1.

Sponsorship, exhibit and advertiser opportunities available! Find out more.
