The most efficient sales trip you can make: Face-to-face cultivation with designers, managers, and specifiers from leading architecture firms. ARCHITECT CONNECTIONS 2020 is designed to foster relationships between architects and building products manufacturers. Specifier–manufacturer interaction is the mission of ARCHITECT CONNECTIONS. The program is engineered to bring top manufacturers together with qualified specifying management for up to 12–16 pre-arranged meetings. These encounters will:

  • Enable valuable discussions
  • Position your company and products as proactive solutions for important, targeted specifiers
  • Foster new relationships & help your company grow
  • And the rest of the time you will rub shoulders with all the attending specifiers at meals, receptions, and programs focused on new products, technologies, and other innovations in building design and construction

Please stay tuned for more information on speakers and registration.
