Road Trip: Scottsdale, AZ

September 19 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 pm

Join us Monday, September 19th in Scottsdale, Arizona for job site tours, networking + lively discussion with leaders in the housing industry.

We’ve chosen this location because there’s plenty of innovation to see up close and personal. The Road Trip also coincides with EEBA’s High Performance Home Summit September 20-22 — giving you even more reason to make the trip.

Explore innovation in trade management, 3D factories in the field, design + installation of air distribution, information modeling + robotics enabled plumbing installations + mobile-ready field learning.

Hear from Brewer Academy, Diamond Age, Austin Companies, Rheia + On3 side-by-side with the builders using their solutions to drive innovation — BB Living, Century Communities, D.R. Horton + Lennar. We’ll start early in the morning so that we catch all the action before the trades go home for the day.

Shuttle service + lunch will be provided. We’ll drop you back at the hotel to take a break + freshen up.

This activity is for Alliance members and partners only.

Connect with leaders changing the face of the housing industry + enjoy free appetizers + a cash bar. This event is co-hosted by Pro Builder, Construct Utopia + Century Communities and co-located with the dinner for those who are staying on to finish the day’s program.

Road Trip registration is not required, but those with Member, Join + Go + Dinner Only tickets get 2 free drinks.

Join us for a family-style sit-down dinner + drinks. Connect with other great minds through small group, think tank discussions. We’ll curate your table for you to ensure you meet someone + learn something new.

Here are the questions we’ll use to kick off the conversation.

– What does your next 6 to 12 months look like?

– Are there any big challenges you need help overcoming?

– How could the Inflation Reduction Act impact housing?

Attending Housing 2.0 in the morning? Coming in later in the day for the EEBA Summit? Great! Grab a Dinner Only ticket to see what the Alliance is all about. This part of the event is open to all with registration.

Synergos' Trades in Action with Lennar @ Verde Trails

Connect with leading trades from the Synergos family of companies at Verde Trails. We'll split into smaller groups and rotate through three stops on-site -- getting an overview of Synergos' strategy as a super trade and watching Erickson, their enclosure team, in action; seeing Brewer Companies' approach to advanced plumbing installations; and catching up with Brewer Craftsman Academy as they train the next generation of talent in the field using information modeling and robotics. You'll also get feedback from the builder on what this partnership has meant to their business.
