About the Conference

Two full days of inspiring ideas and provocative perspectives on residential design, consumer insights, case studies, and building sciences.

We'll discuss the big picture on trends and forces that are shaping our economy, our businesses and our lifestyles as well as the practical application, with subject-specific sessions 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.
