Social & Networking Events

Networking and social events are highlights of CTBUH conferences, excellent for making business connections, as well as catching up with colleagues and friends. Hosted on the upper floors of a seminal skyscraper, these events showcase incredible views of the city’s expansive urban context. There will be two major receptions during the conference, a night for sponsors to host their own social events, and a closing reception in Paris.

Awards Ceremony & Dinner

Our highly anticipated Awards Ceremony & Dinner is the culminating event of the conference, when trophies and titles are conferred on the year’s winning projects. See which Award of Excellence projects advance to category winners and which overall project wins the coveted title of “2023 Best Tall Building Worldwide.” Join us for a sparkling wine reception before finding your seat for a 3-course meal and the ceremony proceedings get under way.


Closing Networking Reception

Attendees of our Paris program will conclude a busy day of programming throughout the city by reconvening for a special closing plenary session and networking reception set at the foot of the Eiffel Tower. Through walls of picture windows, attendees can admire the City of Light from the Trocadéro to the Tour Montparnasse. Enjoy drinks and canapes while the domes of the Sacré-Cœur and Les Invalides rise up on the horizon, and the tower’s full height can be thoroughly appreciated through an exceptional glazed ceiling. 

Please note that attendance at the closing reception is included with the Paris program ticket, and this reception is only open to those participating in the full day’s Paris program.
