Redesigned for Relevance


The AECO (architecture, engineering, construction, and owner) community will convene in Nashville for future-focused education, fast-paced and high-energy sessions, diverse learning through deep dives and micro-education, celebrations of honors & awards, and networking. With your safety in mind, the CSI National Conference will follow federal and state guidelines to bring live events back responsibly.

Senior architects and specification writers are eager to meet with building product manufacturers. They need the technical and performance details of your products for their projects.

Sponsor the 2021 CSI Annual Conference to:

  • Finally get back to doing business and building relationships face-to-face
  • Build brand impressions
  • Boost industry standing as a thought leader and expert
  • Connect with specific technical segments
  • Generate highly-qualified sales leads and establish meaningful connections
  • Demonstrate corporate social responsibility
  • Maximize face-to-face and digital interactions
  • Create compelling engagement channels
  • Track attendee interactions – designed for maximum return on engagement and investment

Making Value Visible

  • Guaranteed, pre-scheduled, face-to-face meetings during Speed Networking.
