Speaker Lineup Announced for Building Innovation 2020 Conference

January 21, 2020

The National Institute of Building Sciences is finalizing the keynote presentations and education sessions for the Building Innovation 2020 Conference & Expo in April.


Building Innovation is a premiere event for the built environment. It brings together innovators, government leaders, public and private sector representatives, and officials from building and construction.


“We’ve been working hard, with the help of our leadership team, to select the best content for attendees,” says Lakisha A. Woods, CAE, President and CEO of NIBS. “Every presentation was handpicked for its importance and impact on the advancement of the built environment.”


New for Building Innovation is an overhauled program structure, reducing the length of sessions to a more “TED Talk”-style format, encouraging speakers to present high-level content. There also will be improved attendee engagement, with a special focus each day – resilience, technology and workforce.

Building Innovation covers a full spectrum of exciting developments and challenges, from future-ready design and building grid integration and best practices for anti-terrorism security to modular multifamily housing and solutions to the skilled labor crisis. 


The event takes place April 6-9. The first day serves as the business portion of the conference, with NIBS committees meeting followed by the opening reception. The education portion of the program begins April 7, with a breakfast and keynote on building resilience. 


The event title sponsor is the International Code Council. 


Building Innovation takes place at the Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel. Register today to attend. Media passes are available.
