PCBC Presents: The Re-Think Conference
June 28 & 29 | San Diego, CA
PCBC’s main conference is now Re-Think—two days of inspiring ideas and provocative perspectives on residential design, marketing and organizational leadership.
Re-Think looks outside the four walls of homebuilding to draw insights from a wide variety of sources. We then apply those insights to the specific challenges of creating better, more livable, more desirable homes and communities.
Thursday, day two of the Re-Think Conference, is the practical application, with subject-specific breakouts led by the industry’s best and brightest practitioners. Covering design, marketing and business management (and sometimes a blend of all three), these sessions will connect you to best practices and innovative new approaches in residential development.
Nothing ever stands still at PCBC. We’re always testing, tinkering and refining to keep the conference fresh, energized and relevant. Re-Thinking, you might say.
