SMPS Boston – Present Your Passions at ABX!

The Call for Proposals to present at the 2016 ABX Conference on November 15 – 17 is now open! Please submit your proposals by March 18th. 

ArchitectureBoston Expo (ABX) is the leading building industry event in the Northeast, bringing together thousands of professionals who work in the A/E/C industry. For the past few years, SMPS Boston has been proud to sponsor a number of marketing and business development focused programs, bringing high-quality education to marketing and business development professionals, as well as technical staff.  Are you interested in presenting an SMPS Boston sponsored workshop for ABX 2016?

ABX provides cutting-edge educational offerings each year, so topics that discuss emerging A/E/C trends, marketing, communications, business development, and leadership and management are of specific interest. Please submit topics that you are an expert in, are passionate about, and that provide marketing, business development, or management education for any professionals who work in the A/E/C industry.
