2021 Sessions

The 2021 Better Buildings: Better Business Conference is all-virtual for 2021.

Each session consists of two parts: a Technical Session followed by a Fireside Chat. In the technical session, experts share their knowledge on industry topics, giving you an opportunity to stay up to speed on building trends and even receive Continuing Education credits. The Fireside Chat is your chance to "ask the experts” during an informal discussion around the technical session’s learnings.
