Architects, interior designers and other professionals in the design industry might soon be hopping a plain to New England, as the 25th annual Build Boston convention rolls into the Seaport world Trade Center next month.

Events at the colossal conference will allow participants to enjoy a range of professional development activities, earn continuing-education credits, and interact with colleagues from across the globe.
"Architects don''t work in isolation, we rely on the expertise of consulting engineers, other design professionals, contractors, manufacturers, and the vision of our clients," says Boston Society of Architects president James Batchelor. "By inviting other building industry associations and client groups to partner with the BSA, we gain both their expertise and their members participation, and that creates a rich learning and networking experience."
Topics being discussed at the 3 day event include energy efficiency, the economic condition of the building industry and the future of the design industry.
