In addition to ample time for networking, the 2+ day event centers around two types of sessions:
Insight Sessions: This is the main forum for the exchange of ideas at the Summit. It is the coming together of experts from various facets of the industry to present on a topic within their area of expertise. Speakers have 15 minutes to present their topic to the audience. Some presentations are controversial. Some challenge what we think we know about how homes work and how they should be built. All are thought provoking.
Breakout Sessions: This is the in-depth portion of the Summit. Attendees have their choice of multiple seminars for each 90-minute block of Breakout Sessions. Each industry expert will present a focused study of a specific topic. Examples include:
|• Does Advanced Framing Make Sense?
• Rethinking Hot Water
• A Case for Double-Stud Walls
• The Final Word on Vapor Barriers
