Conference

Below was our Conference Program at the 2018 show in Baltimore.  Details for the next year's show in Louisville will be available April 2019.  

Industry Education and Live Demonstrations are Our Top Priorities!

Education is our top priority!  Our goal is to develop the best speaker-to-audience dynamics to create experiential learning. 

Choose from education categories including economic forecasting, taxes, business, planning, software, design & color, historic preservation, high-performance buildings, sales, marketing, social media, and regional specific topics, to name a few.  Most sessions are approved industry training and offer continuing education credits to maintain professional designations, such as AIA, CAPS, CGB, CGP, Master CGP, and Master Deck Professional.

The real-world industry training and education you receive at the Remodeling Show & DeckExpo will better prepare you for operating your business, building your industry knowledge, and help you define your leadership skills with your peers.  Get your yearly continuing education requirements and walk away with information that can be implemented immediately in your business! 

This year's conference program includes:

Invest to succeed in business. Enjoy a full day of learning and networking with other industry professionals. Troubleshoot ideas with
subject matter experts passionate about their craft and eager to share their knowledge. Select the mini-workshops that best suits your need in each time slot. If you have questions when making your selections, email carol.wilkins@informa.com
