The ElevateAEC Conference: Taking the Industry to New Heights

<strong>The ElevateAEC Conference: Taking the Industry to New Heights</strong>

It’s that time of year again – the ElevateAEC Conference is right around the corner and the excitement is building. This year’s conference promises to be bigger and better than ever, with a jam-packed agenda designed to help you network, learn, and celebrate like never before. Here’s a peek preview of what’s in store.

In its 6th year, the Elevate AEC Conference & Awards Gala continues to meet and exceed its mission. How? The ElevateAEC Conference is the largest in-person gathering of industry leaders and award-winning firms – all interested in advancing the “elevate the industry” vision.

This year’s ElevateAEC Conference is scheduled to be held in Frisco, TX (the new headquarters of the Professional Golf Association – PGA) at the newly-opened Omni PGA Resort. This venue is the perfect place to mingle, connect, and learn together and it’s filled with many post-conference activities to enjoy too. 

Attendees who enjoy a good game of golf can choose from two 18-hole championship courses and there’s even a lighted 10-hole, par-3 short course for those who want to venture out after dark. Now, if golf’s not your thing, take a dip in one (or all) of its four onsite pools, including an adults-only rooftop infinity pool, or rejuvenate at the spa. And everyone can find some fun in its exclusive district where a variety of signature dining and retail concepts, virtual game experiences, programmed entertainment, and more is all available right at your fingertips.

Connect and Celebrate

When it comes to professional events, there’s nothing better than learning, connecting, and then celebrating your successes with colleagues – together. When you attend the ElevateAEC Conference, you’ll have the ability to do all three. We’ll have:

Celebrating Success in Style
