Join the building safety community in Pittsburgh for the International Code Council Annual Conference & Hearings
This year’s event provides educational and networking opportunities for the building safety workforce that has emerged stronger and more adaptable in the wake of significant disruption

Washington, D.C. – The International Code Council is hosting its 2021 Annual Conference and Public Comment Hearings in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, from September 19-28. The conference will focus on resiliency in the industry in the wake of significant disruption to traditional methods of working from the pandemic. Professionals from every sector of the building industry will come together to learn new skills, share best practices, and hear from leading professionals in the building safety and construction space on digital tools and resources to advance safe and sustainable buildings and communities.

This year’s event has been carefully planned to allow our members, stakeholders and employees to gather safely taking into account all required health and safety precautions. In addition to the in-person options in Pittsburgh, some sessions will be offered virtually.

Keynote speakers this year include:

  • Jennifer McClure, an international speaker and business advisor, recognized as an influencer and expert on the future of work, innovative people strategies, and high-impact leadership.
  • Markus Achord, Head of Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging at Sunrun, specializes in the design and execution of diversity, equity and inclusion programs in large, global organizations.

The 2021 code development process continues immediately after the conference with the Public Comment Hearings. These hearings provide an opportunity for participants to influence the 2024 I-Codes, the most widely used and adopted set of building safety codes in the world. At the hearings, governmental member voting representatives vote on hundreds of proposed code changes on behalf of their respective jurisdictions.

“As we look forward to reconnecting at this year’s Annual Conference, the Code Council will be presenting new networking opportunities for the building safety community,” said Code Council CEO Dominic Sims, CBO. “Our Empowering Leaders Luncheon, Safety 2.0 Happy Hour, and Connections Gala are three of many onsite activities that will provide professionals spaces to reengage with industry peers.”  

Participants who register by Friday, August 6, receive an early-bird discount.

Sponsors at this year’s conference include iPlanTables, ISO, 4LEAF, Inc. and The American Concrete Institute. Sponsorship opportunities are still available. Download the 2021 Visibility Prospectus to learn more.
