Building Safety & Design Expo: Call for Presentations

The Building Safety & Design Expo is seeking proposals for the presentation of topics for our Education Pavilion Sessions to be held October 16-17, 2016 in Kansas City, MO.

The Building Safety & Design Expo, held in conjunction with the ICC Annual Conference and Public Comment Hearings, is an educational event and product showcase for all professionals involved in the building design and construction industry. This event attracts code officials, inspectors, plans examiners, architects, plumbing and mechanical professionals, engineers, and fire prevention officers from across the country along with local contractors and builders.

We are looking for both technical and non-technical presentations that educate and inform attendees about new construction techniques and the latest advances in technology, building products and applications.

Please note: Presentations should focus on providing educational and technical information, not the promotion of specific products or services. Presentations can address various aspects of a product or service as it relates to building safety and design. Presenters can encourage attendees to visit their Expo booths for additional information at the conclusion of the session. Applications received by ICC Preferred Providers and those exhibiting at the 2016 Building Safety and Design Expo will receive special consideration during the selection process.

Session will run no more than 45 min with a 15 min Q&A to follow.

Sessions will accommodate 30 to 40 participants.

Provided Equipment

Session areas will be provided with:

  • Laptop
  • Projector and Screen or Monitor

If additional equipment is required, please note it on your application. Additional equipment will be provided at the presenter’s expense.

Reimbursement Policy

Building Safety & Design Expo does not pay honorariums or any travel related expenses.

Presenters are responsible for their own travel and lodging expenses.


All requests to present should be submitted no later than April 15, 2016.
