PCBC Presents: The Re-Think Conference

PCBC’s main conference is now Re-Think—two days of inspiring ideas and provocative perspectives on residential design, marketing and organizational leadership.

Re-Think looks outside the four walls of homebuilding to draw insights from a wide variety of sources. We then apply those insights to the specific challenges of creating better, more livable, more desirable homes and communities.

Wednesday, day one of the Re-Think Conference, gives you the big picture on trends and forces that are shaping our economy, our businesses and our lifestyles. Topics are cross-disciplinary and experienced together in a general session format, artfully synthesized by an expert moderator.
