Offsite Construction Expo Goes Digital

Denver – Registration is now open for the now-digital Offsite Construction Expo – Denver, sponsored by the Modular Building Institute (MBI). The two-day digital expo will start on Sept. 16 and conclude Sept. 17.

The expo will closely follow the format of previous in-person expos and will feature educational presentations, digital booths from industry exhibitors, and person-to-person communication over video and chat. This event will mark the sixth year that MBI has sponsored the Offsite Construction Expos.

There will be a variety of modular vendors and component suppliers all in one virtual room. Past expo exhibitors have included offsite construction contractors, traditional contractors that have integrated offsite methods, offsite factories, transportation companies, BIM suppliers, materials suppliers, and consultants of all types of offsite construction processes. A number of MBI members exhibit at the Expos on a regular basis.

Speakers at the Denver Expo include MBI member Shawn Lothrop, CEO of Innovative Structural Engineering. He’ll be speaking about the advantages and value of structural engineering for modular and offsite construction. John Beddow, CEO of Guerdon, LLC, will be addressing affordable housing. Rhys Kane’s (Horizon North) session will also explore the topic. Chris Waters from Z Modular will speak on new markets and challenges for modular construction and Troy Tiddens (neUdesign Architecture) will speak on the means and methods of offsite design. The event is $199 for all attendees.

Two additional digital expos – each targeted to a specific North American region – are planned for 2020. OSCE Toronto is planned for Oct. 21 and 22. OSCE Washington DC is scheduled for Nov. 18 and 19.
