About This Virtual Event

This conference explores and celebrates the very best in innovative tall buildings, urban spaces, building technologies, and construction practices from around the world. Incorporating what was previously known as the CTBUH Annual Awards Event, this conference will see the owner/developers and design teams from Award of Excellence winning projects compete for winning distinctions.


The event brings a critical cross-section of tall building owners, developers, occupiers, designers, engineers, builders, and operators—along with the interested public—to investigate the cutting-edge in sustainable urbanism, as presented by the world’s foremost examples.


Join us and explore what’s on the horizon for dense vertical cities of the future!
