The Better Buildings: Better Business Conference is going all-virtual this year. Instead of a single, three-day conference, B4 2021 brings knowledge directly to you with six online sessions starting on March 24, 2021. Registration is now open.

When are the sessions?

Sessions will be held in March, April, and May with a short break for summer and picking back up in August and September and wrapping up in October. Our next session is August 10, 2021, from 9:00 to 11:30 a.m. Central Time

What topics will be covered? 

B4 2021 will run the gamut of buildings and energy efficiency, from emerging technologies to practical demonstrations.

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. The Fireside Chat is your chance to "ask the experts” during an informal discussion around the technical session’s learnings.

We’ll announce the topics of the following sessions as the year progresses. Be sure to follow us on Twitter or Facebook for regular updates, or contact the B4 team for more information. 

How much will it cost?

Every session of B4 2021 is 100% free, making it easier than ever to attend. Plus, as much as we’d all like to meet in person, an all-virtual conference reduces our carbon footprint from travel. Win-win.

Will I still get Continuing Education credits? What about networking?

We anticipate credits being offered by the following accreditation organizations. Please refer to the page for each session to view the specific credits for the individual session.

  • Building Performance Institute (BPI)
  • National Association of Home Builders (NAHB)
  • National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI)
  • Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET) - RESNET is an education sponsor of the conference 
  • Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services (DSPS)

What about Better Brats: Better Beers?

Sadly, there’s no way to cater such an event virtually, but we’re happy to share our recipe for making some killer brats at home.
