“It was my first time attendance at the CTBUH Conference. On the personal level, this conference was very well executed, it had an outstanding selection of speakers, high quality of the sessions, and the whole event was greatly organized and managed. The location of the venue was perfect. Keep up the great work! I am hoping to attend another conference in the coming years.”

– Katerina Hojgrova; World Architecture News; Brighton, United Kingdom; Media

“I found the conference very well organized and very well attended. It is one of the few events I have attended where it didn’t feel like it was just a trade show.”
