Raleigh, NC – December 15, 2020 — The International Institute of Building Enclosure Consultants (IIBEC) has postponed their 2021 International Convention and Trade Show. The event will now take place September 15-20, 2021 at the Sheraton Phoenix Downtown and the Phoenix Convention Center. It was previously scheduled for March 4-9, 2021.
“We are excited that we will be able to host an in-person meeting in 2021, even though it will be a little later than our usual event. I cannot wait to see our IIBEC members and industry partners next September for the best IIBEC convention yet. I applaud the IIBEC team for their resiliency and ability to improvise for the benefit of our members and the profession,” said IIBEC President Scott Hinesley.
IIBEC’s premier annual event will feature over 25 hours of educational seminars, a two-day trade show with over 140 exhibitors and live product demonstrations, as well as an auction hosted by the RCI-IIBEC Foundation and RCI Foundation Canada.
“We are excited to be planning for an in-person meeting in 2021; we have missed the in-person interaction with IIBEC members and industry partners. IIBEC’s annual convention is the place for building enclosure professionals to find solutions to the challenges they are facing in their consulting practice and we look forward to continuing to see everyone in Phoenix in September,” said Brian Pallasch, IIBEC CEO.
Continuing our tradition of enabling students to learn using real-life experiences and education, the RCI-IIBEC Foundation and RCI Foundation Canada will host students from colleges across the U.S. and Canada to attend the 2021 Annual Convention.
IIBEC and its meeting partners will follow the highest safety standards as outlined by the CDC and the local and state governments to ensure the health and safety of all participants.
