NEW YORK CITY – Exciting progress is being made for the 2015 CTBUH Conference, to be held in New York City October 26-30. The second Conference Steering Committee meeting was held Feb. 24, hosted by Kohn Pedersen Fox. More than 25 New York–based members firms met to discuss the progress of the Conference planning in a meeting led by CTBUH Chairman David Malott and CTBUH Executive Director Antony Wood, who was in New York for a week of meetings in support of the Conference. The group discussed the progress of the Conference, including overall progress of abstract submissions, speakers, confirmed sponsors, organization of regional and technical tours, media and supporting partners, conference promotions and social events.
Members of the Steering Committee have been playing an integral role in supporting the Conference, by reaching out to their individual networks to increase the support of the CTBUH. As the world’s leading resource for professionals focused on the design, construction, and operation of tall buildings and our future cities, the CTBUH is continually looking to grow its membership and network. Efforts from members of the Steering Committee to connect the CTBUH with industry colleagues have made a significant impact on connecting the CTBUH with major developers and other potential partners in New York.
The day also included a tour of the new Tallest Building in the United States and North America, One World Trade Center. CTBUH representatives were given a tour of the building by members of The Durst Organization. The tour also included a look at the space where the CTBUH 2015 New York Conference Opening VIP Reception, hosted by The Durst Organization and sponsored by ThyssenKrupp, will take place. The Opening VIP Reception is an exclusive event, open only to the first 100 paid Conference Full Package registrants.
One World Trade Center is America’s tallest building and an indelible New York landmark. The 104-story building features a grand lobby and observation deck with unparalleled views. The reception at One WTC will provide delegates with an unforgettable experience, as they enjoy an evening in a modern symbol of American resurgence.
