Build Boston the Northeast’s premier architecture and building event, returns to the Seaport Trade Center on November 17-19.
For three days, architects, engineers, contractors, interior designers, and other industry professionals will participate in tours, workshops, and symposiums at the Boston Society of Architects’ annual gathering of the design and construction industry. Now in its 26th year, Build Boston is a regional convention and tradeshow with national recognition, participation, and influence.
Build Boston 2010 will feature nationally and internationally recognized industry leaders who will share their experiences in the areas of energy, building technology, firm management and profitability, urban design, preservation and interior design. In addition, the tradeshow and conference will feature new products, technology and unique services.
The theme for this year’s show is, “Forward” which “reflects the need for the industry to continue to learn from the past, but also embrace that which is new and necessary for continued success, especially given the current economic, political and social landscapes”, according to Lawrence A. Chan FAIA, 2010 BSA President.
Build Boston was conceived and developed by the Boston Society of Architects (BSA) to embrace the entire design, development and construction industry. This broad and inclusive approach has fueled the event’s growth and its continued popularity. “Architects don’t work in isolation, we rely on the expertise of consulting engineers, other design professionals, contractors, manufacturers, and the vision of our clients,” says Chan. “By inviting other building industry associations and client groups to partner with the BSA, we gain both their expertise and their members’ participation, and that creates a rich learning and networking experience.”
Participants can choose from 200 workshops and other professional development opportunities, earn continuing-education credits, visit more than 250 tradeshow exhibits featuring building technologies, products and services, and network with peers and colleagues at the Build Boston Bash and other special events. Discounts are available to attendees who register prior to October 29.
