Conference Synopsis

The annual CTBUH Tall + Urban Innovation Conference explores and celebrates the very best in innovative tall buildings, urban spaces, building technologies, and construction practices from around the world. Incorporating what was previously known as the CTBUH Annual Awards Event, this two-day conference will see the owner/developers and design teams for 46 Finalist projects compete in front of an international audience and live juries for winning distinctions across the following award categories: Best Tall Building Americas, Asia & Australasia, Europe, and Middle East & Africa; Urban Habitat; Construction; Innovation; and the 10 Year Award. In addition, the winners in each regional category will be judged for the single title of “2018 Best Tall Building Worldwide.”

The event brings to Chicago, the home of the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat, a critical cross-section of tall building owners, developers, occupiers, designers, engineers, builders, and operators – along with the interested public – to investigate the cutting-edge in sustainable urbanism, as presented by the world’s foremost examples.

Join us and explore what’s on the horizon for dense vertical cities of the future!
