Leading learning and strategy for SMPS since 2015 has been a highlight of my professional journey. This summer marks my 10th annual conference with SMPS, coinciding with the celebration of 45 years of SMPS annual conferences. Leading leaders brings me great joy and seeing our hundreds of planning hours and thought leadership collide will be magical.

At the core of our strategy is the belief that learning is the ultimate competitive advantage. In today's dynamic landscape, staying ahead requires continuous education and adaptation. Our conference is not just about presentations and workshops; it's a platform for professionals to immerse themselves in the latest trends, technologies, and strategies shaping the AEC sector. From AI-driven marketing to sustainable development practices, our curated sessions offer actionable insights that can transform businesses and careers.

Networking isn't just about exchanging business cards; it's about forging meaningful relationships that lead to partnerships, collaborations, and shared successes. Our conference provides ample opportunities for attendees to connect with industry leaders, peers, and potential clients, fostering a community that thrives on knowledge sharing and collective growth.
