Request for Proposals

New RFP Dates for Session Proposals

In previous years, the BuildingEnergy Boston request for proposals (RFP) for conference sessions has typically been held in June. To ensure that next year's content is as fresh and relevant as possible, the RFP will be open from September 5 to October 18, 2017. Applicants will be notified of the status of their proposals by the first week of December.

Between now and September 5, plan the session you would like to propose for BuildingEnergy Boston. Build your ideas for innovative content, engaging speakers, and powerful learning outcomes.

Successful proposals:

  • feature sustainable and high-performance building practices, techniques, solutions, and/or governance

  • present innovative material and ideas.

  • have rich data to support claims.

  • avoid focusing on specific, proprietary products and/or services.

  • may describe learning from mistakes as well as from successes.

  • may offer a more interactive format beyond simply a lecture and/or slides.

  • may be designed for a specific audience and level of expertise.

The NESEA community that attends BuildingEnergy conferences includes architects, builders, building owners, building operators, designers, engineers, installers, lenders and financiers, policy professionals, property managers, and sustainability officers, ranging from emerging professionals to heralded experts.
