This year’s presentation line-up includes speakers like Paul E. Totten, Kristin Westover, Andrea Wagner Watts, Len Anastasi, Jon Porter, and Derek Ziese, on a variety of topics from building enclosure designs, case studies on low-slope roof systems selection and building envelope, to insulation strategies and defining what high temperature is.

“There seems to be an excitement growing every year. I see more attendees each year. There seems to be more booths and the topics seem to get more and more intense as we go along the years,” says Chris Heuttig, a past attendee.

With over 32 exhibitors attending from a range of organizations including associations and manufacturers, the trade show aspect of ABAA’s Building Enclosure Conference allows for a more intimate setting to network with and learn from those who have experienced both successes and failures.

“ABAA really provides a forum for people to get together and we provide a forum for contractors, for manufacturers, for architects, for consultants to be in the same room to learn from each other,” explains Ryan Dalgleish, COO of ABAA.

Running concurrently to the Building Enclosure Conference are three in-person, hands-on training courses: Sprayed Polyurethane Foam Installer Certification, Self-Adhered and Fluid Applied Installer Certification and Field Auditor. These courses are offered by ABAA and open to anyone interested in learning a new skill or brushing up their current knowledge.
