2021 Traditional Building Conference Sponsorship Opportunities

Education • Networking • Sales

If you sell products and services for the historic preservation, restoration, renovation and traditionally inspired new construction markets, you’ll want to participate in the Traditional Building Conference Series 2021. As a Sponsor of the Traditional Building Conference Series, you will connect with architects, restoration/renovation contractors, custom builders, general contractors, interior designers, building owners, and facilities managers.

Current sponsors include the leading manufacturers and service providers who sell the $170 billion traditional building market. The Traditional Building Virtual Conference creates meaningful conversations with your clients and prospects. You’ll meet buyers and specifiers you would not normally have access to.

Ask Our Current Sponsors…

“If you want to be in front of architects, designers and builders this is an excellent investment. Every vendor on the planet wants the attention of these buyers and specifiers. This is a great way to be one of the select few vendors who gets that attention.”

– Brian Stowell,
President of Crown Point Cabinetry

What to Upload in Your Resource Center

Preparing for the Traditional Building Web Seminar Series and Virtual Conference is simple, but we've prepared a short guide on what to have at the ready.

  • Branding
        • Imagery, especially which links to products, photo galleries or project case studies.
  • Promotional Media
        • Videos of facilities, process, products or team interviews are all great options. 
    • Integrate Social Media Accounts and grow your following!
          • Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Youtube, Pintrest, etc.
    • Surveys, Case Studies, Buying Guides, and other downloadable extras add more opportunities for interaction that keep attendees engaged beyond the conference.
    • Pre-recorded introductory video. 
          • All presentations and lectures will be preceded by a short video of the speaker introducing themselves and giving any relevant background information. This ensures featured content begins right on schedule.

    The virtual conference allows for all content to be connected. Any content uploaded can be made interactive—therefore an image should link to an upcoming lecture or a webpage; images can open into a video or take one to a gallery of related products. Take advantage of this to maximize exposure and attendee engagement with your booth.

    Here is what attendees say about the Traditional Building Conference Series:

    “The variety of technical vs. artistic talent was great!… I really liked the new format, had better connections with the vendors and got to know fellow attendees and presenters”

    “Excellent speakers, informative, engrossing topics for a room full of architects.”

    “Engaging as well as ‘Big Picture’”

    “One of the very best seminar topics I have ever experienced. A real treat and changed the way I think about design.”
