There are three types of Gold packages, the first two offering exclusive sponsorship of a unique aspect of the conference, as outlined below, and the third—Straight Gold—connected with a speaking role and conference branding. All Gold packages offer a core conference presentation; up to four complimentary conference registrations; and up to five registrations for the workshops.

Gold Sponsors:

Gold + Workshop

Gold + Workshop Sponsors will establish themselves as thought leaders in a given field by chairing a new committee focused on a distinct field in the exciting new global CTBUH Tall Building Accreditation and Certification Program (think LEED, but for a more holistic rating embracing multiple areas of “performance,” not just energy; carbon, safety, quality of occupation, urban integration, and more). The sponsor will help drive and chair committee meetings (virtual) in advance of the conference, with the corresponding half-day workshop, taking place on Day 1 of the conference, being a milestone in the establishment of the accreditation and certification program. The sponsor will co-host, alongside CTBUH, and chair the workshop, and thus drive the discussion on what constitutes “excellence” in a particular field. Gold + Workshop Sponsors will thus be positioned as the leading experts in that field, and help drive the new accreditation and certification program after the conference. Possible committees/workshop themes are shown in the Platinum section.

Gold + Student/Research Competition

Gold + Student/Research Competition Sponsors support one of four annual, standalone programs aimed at students and researchers around the world. Each of the four involves a pre-conference “call for submissions” shared with the CTBUH global network and supports a program typically lasting six months. The sponsor sets the specific theme for its competition and sits on the jury. The winners typically attend the conference and are recognized on stage—with the sponsor making the award. These altruistic packages support specific academic initiatives, with a significant proportion of the funds disbursed directly to the student/research group, tangibly benefiting both the recipients and the sponsor far beyond the conference itself.

  • Gold + Research Seed Funding: This program is aimed at research professors globally and distributes funding of US$15,000 in a single prize to the best and most novel research proposal.
  • Kindly sponsored by: 

  • Gold + Student Design Competition: The best projects are displayed and judged at the conference. US$15,000 of the sponsor funds are distributed to the finalists in the form of prize money and travel stipends for the students to attend and present at the conference in a special session.
  • Kindly sponsored by: 

  • Gold + Student Research Competition: This program is similar to the research seed funding competition, but is aimed at students. The winning group is awarded $15,000 of funding.
    Gold + Traveling Student Design Studio: The winning group of students, from the new Masters of Tall Buildings and Vertical Urbanism Program at the Illinois Institute of Technology, travel to study the sponsor’s site and design a hypothetical tall building/urban project on that site. US$15,000 of sponsor funds are used to support travel and studio expenses, with the sponsor’s direct involvement as the designs develop.
