Council on Tall Buildings Sets Dates for 2024 Americas Conference


Dec. 3, 2023 – The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) has set Feb. 22-23, 2024, as the dates for its Americas Conference, to be held in Miami, Florida.

Themed Future Downtown: Density and Resiliency in American Cities, the conference will explore the unique challenges and opportunities that lie in the downtown landscapes across the Americas.

That exploration will start with a review of the narratives driving the region's urban evolution.

Recognizing the specific challenges and opportunities in the American urban fabric will set the stage for an examination of strategies aimed at ensuring a sustainable urban future.

Solutions to social, economic, and environmental challenges lay the groundwork for inclusive growth, sustainable development, and resilience.

Engaging in this analytical dialogue, informed by insights from leading policymakers, urban planners, and architects from across the region, promises to spur transformative thought, strategy, and action.

Subject areas include:

  • The Downtown Perspective: America's Urban Challenges and Opportunities

  • Shared Skies: Inclusivity in Changing Cityscapes

  • Economic Pathways for Urban Resilience

  • Future-Proof Cities: Environmental Resilience in Design for Urban Spaces

  • Reimagining Density for Urban Resilience

Regional gathering of CTBUH leaders and industry decision makers 

Over the years, CTBUH has coordinated representatives in cities and countries around the world to promote its activities on a local scale.

However, the council has identified the need for opportunities to develop regional themes and activities, a layer between the local and the global.

Following the resounding success of the launch of the Americas hub in Seattle last year, the council looks forward to bringing this event to Miami in 2024.

The council notes that this is the premier opportunity to gain insights into the latest thinking in sustainability from the region’s most distinguished experts in tall buildings, infrastructure, and urban development.

Attendees can develop business leads and partnerships at the regional level while networking with top names in the industry.

The conversations that happen here will enable attendees to influence best-practice thinking and policy making in their regions.

The council encourages professionals from all disciplines with a connection to and interest in tall buildings and urban habitat are encouraged to attend.

Examples included building owners, architects, developers, leaders in the construction industry, and experts associated with the technologies and psychology of making urban living sustainable and profitable.
