The 2022 conference will convene presentations and panel discussions addressing the theme of “Tall Excellence: Seeking the Ideal in Vertical Urbanism.” Over two days of the core conference, delegates will attend sessions in one of nine parallel tracks that relate to this overarching idea, in addition to a corresponding plenary session each morning.

The Day 2 and Day 3 topics will balance thought-provoking and future-focused discussions on topics such as innovation, performance, urban integration, social equity, and more, and case studies of award-winning projects. Additionally, the sessions will continue the discourse begun during Day 1 workshops regarding the establishment of a global accreditation and certification program for both tall buildings and professionals in the field.

Please note, CTBUH members interested in presenting are encouraged to submit an abstract using the online portal by the 11 March 2022 deadline. Submissions should relate directly to the conference theme, and all abstracts will be subject to peer review. For more information, visit
