Boston, MA. (PRWEB) September 28, 2012
ABX offers over 175 professional development opportunities, covering a range of topics from building technology to design, software, social sustainability and code. Led by some of the biggest names in the industry, this is the most challenging conference program in the country for the A/E/C professional. Tours are also provided, allowing attendees an inside look into some of the most unique and interesting buildings in Greater Boston, including the recently re-opened Tea Party Museum, Hostelling International and the MassArt Tower Building.
The tradeshow and conference launches on Wednesday morning with Speaking of Architecture, an Opening Plenary panel discussion moderated by Renée Loth of ArchitectureBoston Magazine and Robert Campbell FAIA of the Boston Globe. Panelists are Nader Tehrani, Peter Kuttner FAIA, Andrea Leers FAIA, David Lee FAIA and William Rawn FAIA; five of Boston’s most talented and accomplished architects. The opening session is free to all ABX attendees.
ABX expects more than 15,000 attendees in Hall C of the BCEC to visit the 400 building product and service vendors. In addition to hosting a thriving marketplace, the tradeshow floor has expanded to include interactive activities, such as a bamboo dome by Architecture for Humanity Boston, a full-scale mockup of ADD Inc’s micro-housing unit initiative What’s In (And Who’s Out) and an Accessibility Exhibit promoting universal design. Admission to the Exhibit Hall is free for attendees if they register by October 31.
Produced by the Boston Society of Architects (BSA), this is the inaugural year of ABX. Founder and long-time co-producer of Build Boston and Residential Design & Construction, the BSA retired the 27-year-old brands last year to commit fully to ABX.
Registration for ABX 2012, November 14 – 16 is available at abexpo.com.
