Taking place March 17–22, the 2022 IIBEC International Convention and Trade Show will welcome building enclosure professionals from across North America to the Rosen Shingle Creek in Orlando, Florida.
“Our 2021 convention, which took place in September, was a success, but we’re pleased to be holding our 2022 convention at the normal time in the spring,” said Brian Pallasch, executive vice president and chief executive officer at IIBEC. “IIBEC members are looking forward to the networking, educational opportunities, and great speakers that make our international convention and trade show the premier event for building enclosure consultants and industry professionals.”
Attendees will be able to explore the latest products and services from exhibitors during the two-day trade show March 19–20.
“Exhibitors are excited to be returning to in-person events like the 2022 IIBEC International Convention and Trade Show,” said Karen McElroy, vice president of events at IIBEC. “We know the strong interest we’re seeing among exhibitors will be matched by the interest in their products and services among the building-enclosure professionals who will attend the trade show.”
Those looking to boost their continuing education hours (CEHs) at the show will earn 2.0 CEHs for spending up to four hours on the trade show floor and 3.0 CEHs for spending more than four hours at the trade show. The convention also includes more than 17 hours of live, in-person educational seminars. Kicking off the educational content on Friday, March 18, is an auxiliary seminar, “Florida’s High-Velocity Hurricane Zone (HVHZ) Product-Approval Process,” presented in three sections: the history of the Florida Building Code’s HVHZ section; Miami-Dade product-control requirements for fenestration and cladding components and systems; and Miami-Dade product-control requirements for roofing components and systems.
In their efforts to support the rising generation of industry professionals, the RCI-IIBEC Foundation and RCI Foundation Canada have a goal of sending 25 college students to the convention. The foundations also will host an auction during the event.
The opening general session will feature Duncan Wardle, founder of iD8 & innov8, who will share how he created magical consumer experiences while head of innovation and creativity at Disney, and how his unique Design Thinking process can help embed a culture of innovation into today’s work force.
“We’re looking forward to seeing our members in sunny Orlando for a time of learning and networking,” said IIBEC President Ted Sheridan.
