7 ProConnect events scheduled for 2024, including all-new 'AEC Giants'

ProConnect events connect AEC professionals, home builders, and property developers with top-level building product manufacturers for confidential, one-to-one discussions that lead to long-term working relationships.

Building Product Manufacturers meet one-on-one with product specifiers at a recent ProConnect event.

SGC Horizon, parent company of Building Design+Construction, Multifamily Pro+, and ProBuilder, will present 7 exclusive ProConnect Events in 2024: two Multifamily (April 15-17 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and Oct 16-18 in Denver), three Single Family (Feb 5-7, Daytona Beach, Fla.; June 3-5, Washington, D.C.; Sept 11-13, Denver), the first-ever AEC Giants (July 22-23, Nashville), and the 4th Annual ProConnect Sustainability (Dec 10-11, Austin, Texas).

This short video tells how ProConnect events give architects, contractors, home builders, developers, and real estate professionals the opportunity to meet in confidential 20-minute sessions with Building Product Manufacturers to discuss upcoming projects, learn about exciting new products, and discover practical solutions to their most vexing technical problems.


ProConnect Events are designed for building professionals – Developers, Property Owners, Architects, Designers, Sustainability Experts, Home Builders, and General Contractors – who are responsible for recommending and specifying products for their firms' projects. The events are free to qualified Attendees vetted by ProConnect staff. Travel subsidies are provided for qualified Attendees.

Sponsorships are open to Building Product Manufacturers serving the respective market sector or building type for each event.

This video describes how a nine-time Sponsor gets the most out of ProConnect: "We get sales from these events, and when we have a good thing, we want to keep it going," says Nick Eleftheriou, President/CEO of Pioneer Faucets.
