2020 Traditional Building Conference Series Sponsorships

In-Person Conferences and Online Education

AIA Learning Units Available 

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 2020. As a Sponsor of the Traditional Building Conference Series, you will connect with architects, restoration/renovation general contractors, building owners, and facilities managers, in person, in print, and online.

All of the Traditional Building conferences take place in beautiful historic venues. In between educational, AIA-accredited seminars, attendees network with the speakers and sponsors.

There are up to twenty sponsors, as space permits. Current sponsors include the leading manufacturers and service providers who sell the $170 billion traditional building market. The Traditional Building Conferences are not trade shows but a personal, relaxed setting for having 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
