The Pacific Coast Builders’ Conference (PCBC) 2018 recently took over San Francisco’s Moscone Center for the 59th incarnation of the western United States’ largest home trade show. The event, which was held on June 27th and 28th, featured over 350 exhibits on the tradeshow floor, as well as numerous product demonstrations and informative lectures promoting the art, science and business of housing.
“PCBC is committed to providing the industry with the insights and inspiration they need to create better, more livable, more desirable homes and communities,” says Linda Baysari, senior vice president of PCBC.
This year’s speakers included Ron Nestor (AIA, senior principal of WHA), who shared his thoughts on “Rebuilding After the Fires.”
Other speakers new to PCBC this year were Suzanne Arkle (President & CEO, ZANN) and Sterling Jawitz (Head of Real Estate Strategic Partnerships).
PCBC 2018’s keynote speakers were an eclectic mix of professionals from different fields, and included award-winning photographer Platon, best-selling author Patrick Lencioni and Jay Rogers, CEO and co-founder of Local Motors.
Each keynote speaker shared their unique perspectives on the housing industry in lively talks intended to spur creativity and innovation among PCBC attendees.
The second annual Re-Think Conference provided PCBC attendees with insights, as well as hands-on learning opportunities, in the areas of residential design, marketing and organizational leadership, land acquisition, development, research, investment and entitlement.
In addition to getting an up-close look at some of the industry’s hottest new products and technological advances, the PCBC exhibit floor was also home to the Parade of Products Awards.
Products singled out for recognition represented “outstanding achievements in innovation and new product development.”
“As homes become more technologically advanced and sustainability, multifamily and affordable housing trends continue to grow, PCBC challenges attendees to think creatively and capitalize on their passion to achieve their business goals,” says Baysari.
PCBC 2019 returns to San Francisco on May 30th and 31th, 2019.
