Welcome to Raleigh, North Carolina!

Recently voted the second best city in the world for quality of life, the capital of North Carolina has a lot to offer!

Conference attendees will enjoy time in the LEED-certified Raleigh Convention Center during work hours, but have plenty of opportunities to visit downtown restaurants, parks and the night life through special events at the Conference!

Raleigh Convention Center

 Located in the heart of downtown, the Raleigh Convention Center is steps away from award-winning restaurants, parks, shopping and nightlife in one of the nation’s most rapidly growing entrepreneurial and tech hubs.  With its rooftop solar panels and LEED Silver Certification, the Raleigh Convention Center is the perfect place for the Southeast Building Professionals Conference & Expo to be held!

Lodging & Accommodations

There is no official hotel for the Conference as we know that Conference Attendees increasingly enjoy selecting their own accommodations, garnering travel points and even staying with friends or co-workers.  As such, we encourage Attendees to book their reservations early with local hotels, AirBnB and other rentals, or friends and family!  If you need help, we’ll be happy to assist!
