Delegate Comments

“Excellent format, informative and interesting throughout.”   – Nicholas Worley, Senior Associate, Fletcher Priest Architects   “Overall, it was a well put together and enjoyable event.”   – Gregory Thompson, Senior Project Manager and Principal, RWDI   “In general, CTBUH does a really nice job with these conferences – offering networking opportunities, good food, and great wayfinding.”   – Shelley Finnigan, Global Technical Sales Engineer, ArcelorMittal   “Overall, it was a great conference. It set a new standard for this awards event, and the atmosphere at the dinner was fantastic. The event had good pacing, considering the number of awards being presented.”   – Jon Magnusson, Senior Principal, Magnusson Klemencic Associates   “Overall it was a great conference. Thanks to everyone at CTBUH who did such a good job with the organization.”   – Roy Denoon, Vice President and Principal, CPP Wind Engineering   “We enjoyed the conference this year. Thank you!”   – Hiroo Mori, Director and Executive VP, Mori Building   “The whole event was a huge success, it was nice to see projects from all around the world.”   – Ilkay Standard, Innovation Manager, GenX Design & Technology   “Great conference and event. On the behalf of Armstrong Ceiling Solutions, thank you for having me. I’m looking forward to attending and participating at the Tall + Urban Innovation Conference next year.”   – Johardy Sunandjaja, Armstrong Ceiling Solutions   “It was an amazing experience, and I learned a lot. I am now a fully dedicated member of the organization and I promote it whenever I get the opportunity. Well done to you all for a well-organized event, keep up the good work.”   – Peyman Mohajer, WME   “I thought that having the owners and developers present was a great thing.”   – Dan Kaplan, FXCollaborative   “Impressive evolution of the CTBUH Awards event. Three simultaneous tracks may be required when Engineering Award categories are added next year. Aqua Tower was an excellent venue.”   – Kevin Havens, Wight & Company   “I enjoyed this format and venue this year. It can be difficult to get an end client to take time out of their schedule to attend. My only suggestion would be to consider any events, opportunities, and honors that could entice the end clients/owners to attend in greater number.”   – Matthew Herman, BuroHappold
