“Unforeseen circumstances” have caused the relocation of Building Innovation 2016, the National Institute of Building Sciences’ fourth annual conference and exposition.

Set for Jan. 11-15, the event is moving from Washington, D.C., to the Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel in Arlington, Va.

A major benefit of the new hotel, the Institute said in announcing the change, is its location less than a mile from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.

“Not only does the new location provide easy access to out-of-town travelers, it allows the Institute to maintain the same dates of the event and the already scheduled format, thereby ensuring that speakers and registered attendees will still be able to participate,” the Institute says. “The newly selected LEED Gold-certified venue also addresses a number of concerns that participants raised about the previous venue. The new location has ample daylighting, and all of the meetings and events for the conference will be conveniently located on one floor. Other than the change in venue, the Building Innovation 2016 format will remain the same.”

During Building Innovation 2016, the Institute will focus on “Achieving a Resilient Future” through an agenda designed to foster collaboration and improve the built environment.

Because of the change in venue, the Institute extended the early-bird registration deadline to Sunday, Nov. 15.

The Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel is offering the same conference rate of $179. Attendees are to mention "Building Innovation 2016" when making reservations. The deadline to secure the rate is Monday, Dec. 28, at 6 p.m. EST. Reservations can be made online or by calling 703-413-1300.
