Each conference day is dedicated to addressing key topics: firm resilience, sustainable practice, community engagement, and building efficiencies.

Haggerty will also serve as a panelist on Day 4 of the conference on August 19 to discuss how the world is changing and how the industry will need to adapt to survive.

In addition, OBE will leverage the conference platform to provide learning opportunities and share how its experts work collaboratively with architects to solve building challenges. Connect with OBE throughout the conference, including on:

    • Day 1: Firm Resilience – June 17 – Jeff Phillips, OBE General Manager, Holoform, will conduct a live product demo, The “Next Normal” for Interiors.
