|Tuesday, November 19 – Thursday, November 21
Boston Convention and Exhibition Center
Same city, same venue, more great people. ABX 2013 is New England’s largest building industry event and takes place immediately following the ASLA EXPO.
ABX is a testament to the original social media: face-to-face. More than 8,500 professionals came through the doors last year with a whopping 92 percent hailing from New England. This deep regional reach is ABX’s greatest strength, providing a common focus for the 400 exhibitors and myriad networking events, and paving the way for a deep and comprehensive conference program. Seminar tracks like Resiliency, Urban Boston, Urban Universal, and Business Development provide a focus on landscape architecture and design, sustainability, and best business practices.
