CTBUH Americas Region

Over the years, CTBUH has coordinated representatives in cities and countries around the world to promote its activities on a local scale. However, we have identified the need for opportunities to develop regional themes and activities. CTBUH regional hubs respond to the evolving needs of our members by providing opportunities for collaboration, networking, and other activities in a specific region. They will occupy the middle ground between the CTBUH’s global initiatives, the annual International Conference, and the city-level chapters.

The first quarter of 2024 has seen an exciting level of activity in the CTBUH Americas region, with new chapter growth, various local events, and a successful regional conference in Miami! See below for the highlights from the past 3 months.

8 September 2023

At the inaugural CTBUH 2023 Americas Conference, “Green(er) Capital: Investing in a Sustainable Urban Future” held in Seattle at the Lotte Hotel from 11-12 May, there was a consensus on the importance of looking beyond the word “sustainable” as a catch-all. Instead, the emphasis was on how the intertwined industries of development, engineering, design, and policy can come together to work towards and creatively achieve a more resilient future for vertical urbanism.
