In addition, ticket’s for this year’s BILT NA will also give you access to our sister event, the Building Content Summit, an event designed to facilitate discussions around best practices for building content and manufacturers content. These sessions will run concurrent to BILT NA on the Thursday and Friday and means you’ll get access to two events and a wider variety of classes, for the price of one.
We’re also running a social media competition where you can win 1 of 3 full delegate passes to the event. All you have to do is share via social media! Access the competition here
