Wristbands and Lanyards

This year each registered delegate will receive a name badge and conference wristband.  These items will be your pass to the conference events and they will set you apart from hotel guests.  It is imperative that you keep your wristband on throughout the duration of the conference and that you wear your name badge so that people have the opportunity to introduce themselves.  You may be denied access to the events without them.

Ticket Exchange

The ticket exchange is your opportunity to reserve your dinner and choose who you sit with at the Alberta Awards of Excellence in Housing ceremony and the President's Gala. Those with VIP seating will be notified in their registration package and are not required to make any seating arrangements for the night(s) indicated.
How the ticket exchange works:
Decide who you would like to sit with at the Alberta Awards of Excellence in Housing Ceremony or the President's Gala, collect all the tickets from your event guide (received when you check in at the conference) and bring them to the Concierge Desk before noon on Friday to reserve seats for your group.

Sign Up for Some Friendly Team Competition

There will be plenty of time to mingle at BUILD but there is also time for activities: the Lehigh Inland Stel-Marr Golf Tournament, Amazing Race, and Frisbee Golf.  There is still opportunity to add to your existing conference registration: Saturday golf ($229), Amazing Race ($50) and Frisbee Golf ($25).  There are great prizes to be won during these activities.  Click here to sign up today!
