IWBC 2018: Industrialized Wood-Based Construction Conference

October 24th through the 26th, 2018 - Seaport Hotel and World Trade Center, Boston, Massachusetts

The first-ever event at which global innovators in offsite, wood-based and automated construction can meet developers, architects, engineers, builders, planners and others ready to engage the world of rapidly-built, offsite construction.

For decades, declining productivity in construction has held the global economy hostage. It’s a perfect storm in which a lack of innovation and a shortage of skilled labor are obstructing new building completions on an enormous scale. And all against a backdrop of rapidly growing demand. Affordable housing shortages are at the crisis stage in hundreds of cities, while their populations rise exponentially. Learn more about IWBC here.
