We have all been wondering it: What’s Next?


At BTF ’19, green technology firms and building product companies will answer this question and explore the future of building science. Start the night with drinks and networking, followed by a series of 30 presentations where industry leaders discuss advances in building technologies. All presentations are split into one of 3 education tracks organized by topic. Polish the night off with more drinks and a table top networking session.
