Quality education for Specifiers

“They are on a constant hunt for new trends, greener and sustainable products and new technologies to help them more efficiently do their jobs. The National Specifiers Conference addresses these unique challenges and delivers real-world solutions."

“Spec writers live between the push and pull of contractors, owners, design requirements and deadlines. Their offices, once libraries of mountains of catalogues from which they source product to marry design and materials into perfect unions, are now embracing the myriad digital resources, the ever changing code requirements and latest materials databases ” says Conference Director George Borkovich. “They are on a constant hunt for new trends, greener and sustainable products and new technologies to help them more efficiently do their jobs. The National Specifiers Conference addresses these unique challenges and delivers real-world educational solutions.”

The National Specifiers Conference provides opportunities to discuss the impact specification changes, to talk with industry experts about future trends, to participate in group sessions on specifications production and so much more including the following:

  •     See live demonstrations and case studies by vendors of design tools and construction and asset management applications.
  •     Learn how information flowing throughout a project can be captured and consolidated to ensure the owner/occupier continues to have a clear and complete description of the facility.
  •     Discover new resources that save time and improve quality.
  •     Exchange ideas with the most experienced specification writers in the country.
