What is Elevate AEC?

The Elevate AEC Conference, formerly known as the Hot Firm and A/E Industry Awards Conference, is Zweig Group’s annual 2 1/2 -day event that brings the most successful leaders of AEC firms together to network, learn, and celebrate the remarkable achievements of the industry.

Growing an average of 44% per year over the past five years, Zweig Group’s annual conference is the largest gathering of award-winning AEC firms, making it the industry’s most comprehensive business conference for leaders and aspiring leaders of AEC firms in the US.

The conference name change acknowledges our shared mission to elevate the stature of our industry and appreciation for its many life-saving and life-changing contributions.

This year, the Elevate AEC Conference marks another leap in the evolution of Zweig Group’s annual event by expanding educational offerings to include a highly specialized track geared specifically to CMO and senior marketing leaders. We are committed to bringing all the very best of our accumulated knowledge as the industry’s leading educational resource, and to delivering a conference experience that informs, motivates, and inspires. There is no other place in the AEC industry to gain access to the comprehensive C-Suite of forward-thinking, progressive AEC firm leaders than the Elevate AEC Conference.

We invite you to join us at the Green Valley Ranch Resort and Spa in Las Vegas from October 2-4, 2019.  You will be inspired by an impressive line-up of speakers, participate in topically-relevant breakout sessions, reconnect with peers and make new connections and celebrate success as the conference culminates in a black-tie gala that is like no other in the AEC industry.

It has never been a better or more exhilarating time for our professions, and we look forward to celebrating your many significant accomplishments with you and your peers.

Our Mission: Elevate the Industry

The Elevate the Industry mission has five tenets: promote, diversify, educate, change, and celebrate. Zweig Group’s vision is to facilitate action in pursuit of elevating individuals, firms, and thus the industry. More than a mission, this is a movement to advance the AEC profession, creating a world that celebrates the built environment and recognizes its impact on individuals, communities, and commerce.

Testimonials

The conference had a consistent theme about continuing to evolve and grow yet finding meaningful time for in-depth conversations around strategy within the team.
It’s the people you meet and connect with. I met a guy from Ohio that is already doing some of the things that we want to do, and getting to talk with him and connect is huge.
I appreciated the hospitality and chats with both the wonderful attendees and the great Zweig team members. Keep up the great work, and thanks to ALL the team members for their extra efforts to make the conference a solid experience – attagirls and attaboys all around!
It was an absolutely fantastic event. I’m still riding the high from it one week later. I’m pretty sure my team wants me to shut up about it already. Can’t wait for Vegas next year.
The constant theme of growth through education (self, others, and competitors) as well as treating team members well was refreshing and helped reinforce what we are trying to do.
Networking was a huge benefit for me. Chad’s speech regarding elevating the industry was the most memorable moment for me.
There were many specific points taken away, but I think that overall, the value of recognition, appreciation, and celebration around our successes were essential aspects that are too often lost. The awards, the making of our video and our sharing of this within our firm were all meaningful.
The quality of content, social events and creature comforts all scaled appropriately, overall result being a very pleasant and positive experience.

I really enjoyed the networking opportunity with everyone from Zweig Group, to the keynote speakers, to the attendees.

The conference and service were exceptional, the food was top notch, and the Fairmont Dallas Hotel served as a beautiful venue for the conference.

The ceremony was upbeat and kept everyone in the spirit of celebration. All of the audio/visual work and efforts that went into the production were well thought out. It was fantastic and motivating.

Great show and great venue for firms to celebrate such great achievements.

Great atmosphere, food and beverages offering wonderful opportunity to talk with peers and Zweig folks.

I love how approachable and intentional the Zweig Group staff was! I feel like I made so many friends during this event!

Well planned and executed in every sense. The event demonstrated a sensitivity to this industry and to these people.
