Delegate Comments

“The quality of attendees at the conference was very high – a great international attendance. CTBUH staff were also very helpful and accommodating.”

– Sam McKechnie, National Business Development Manager, Studco Systems


“It was a great event and I’m very impressed with how well CTBUH ran this complicated undertaking. Our program room worked out well and I was happy to see how heavily it was used.”

– Fred Clarke, Senior Design Principal, Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects


“From the beginning of sponsorship planning, preparation, and organization, we were impressed by the professionalism, strong ownership, and efficient responsiveness of the CTBUH team.”

– April Liu, Marketing and Communications Manager, Schindler Elevator Co.


“Congratulations to the CTBUH on a wonderful and successful conference, I was truly inspired and am already thinking on how to expand my role in the organization.”

– Richard H. Lee, Partner, C.Y. Lee & Partners


“The conference showed a very strong attendance both locally and internationally. The opening and closing plenaries set the scene and showed off the broad issues that CTBUH confronts.”

– Bruce Wolfe, Company Chair | Director, Conrad Gargett


“This was my first CTBUH conference, and it won’t be my last. The conference opened my eyes to how the rest of the world approaches tall building development, from which I learned a great deal.”

– Dominic Callanan, Construction Manager, Mirvac Developments


“It was a wonderful conference (my first) and I was delighted to see so much passion and enthusiasm to make our world a better place to live and work.”

– Joseph McDonnell, Director, Turas


“The conference was a superbly organized event. High class speakers and cities, and even the venues were appealing to me.”

– Martin Baerschmidt, Edge Design


“The quality of the papers, presentations, building visits and networking were all first rate. All too often I have attended conferences where you gain very little technically and the attendees are really just part of a glorified club. That is definitely not the case with any events organized by CTBUH, and this one in particular.”

– Ian Duncombe, ChapmanBDSP


“I really enjoy the knowledge sharing and high-level networking. As a practitioner in the Asia Pacific region coping with rapid urbanization, my work and projects often were, and continue to be, super high-rise buildings. CTBUH’s most updated information is very useful.”

– Kenneth Hau, HKIA
