Following the emerging international response to the novel coronavirus, and the fact that colleagues from 36 countries were scheduled to attend to present on their winning projects, CTBUH has canceled the 2020 Tall + Urban Innovation Conference. Instead, the fantastic projects scheduled to be featured at the event will be carried forward into the 2021 Tall + Urban Innovation Conference. Questions? Contact info@ctbuhconference.com.

About the 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 in front of an international audience and live juries for winning distinctions.

 

The event brings to Chicago, home of CTBUH, 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!
