Virtual Traditional Building Conference

INTBAU USA is pleased to share news of the November 9 – 12, 2020 Traditional Building Conference Series, fully online for your convenience.

The Traditional Building Conference team has built a virtual conference hall worthy of our typical historic venues. This is more than just a webinar. Through live video conferencing with speakers, networking chat rooms, and interactive sponsor booths, we are bringing the community and resources of our in-person conferences to a computer near you. View the Full Conference Schedule here.

This version of our Materials and Methods education line-up will feature 10 one-hour seminars with video demonstrations, question and answer sessions, and virtual interaction with peers, speakers, and sponsors. All in, attendees can earn over 25 AIA CEUs this year by engaging with our virtual events, which, as always, are focused on proven best practices and techniques in the traditional building space—including all historic-building types.
