21st Century Building Expo & Conference Moves to Concord in 2022; NFL Legend to Speak

The 21st Century Building Expo & Conference (21CBEC) is moving! The 2022 show will be held October 18-20 at the Embassy Suites by Hilton/Concord Convention Center. If you’ve ever fought traffic and parking in Uptown Charlotte to get to 21CBEC in the past, you’ll find the new location – just minutes off of Interstate 85 – more accessible and convenient. The NC Builder Institute will again offer a wide variety of classes, all of which will count towards continuing education credit for NC licensed general contractors.


On Wednesday, October 19, NFL legend Joe Theismann will deliver a luncheon keynote address and greet attendees. Make sure to save the dates now – October 18-20 in Concord – and make plans to attend this year’s show. Registration will open later this Spring.
