Remember, some sponsors and financial partner packages also include complimentary admission for up to eight (8) registrations. It may be advantageous for your organization to consider a sponsorship and receive complimentary registrations. It’s very easy.

Hilton El Conquistador Hotel

Tribal leaders, state and local government leaders, business owners, entrepreneurs, legislators, archaeologists, architects, cultural resource managers, city planners, developers, historic preservation enthusiasts, students, lecturers, authors, professors, homeowners, historic preservation commissioners, non-profit organizations, museum administrators, archivists, energy experts and leaders, contractors, private consultants in historic preservation, and countless others who understand the value of adaptive reuse, sustainability, and the importance of preserving sites and culturally significant resources for future generations.

Local, domestic, and international speakers are often our keynote speakers, presenters, and session leaders at the conference. Many of the speakers are entrepreneurs, authors, lecturers, and leaders in the historic preservation industry and community. Some speakers come from as far away as Western Europe, Great Britain, Canada, and as close as neighboring towns and cities within Arizona itself. Our hope is to encourage more global educational outreach with this conference and build awareness of the great work we are doing in Arizona and the Southwest to preserve buildings, sites, and cultural places.

2017 Session Speakers

We have seen small business owners and major corporate and public entities participate as our conference partners and sponsors. Typically these participants are directly involved in historic preservation or in some way support the historic preservation efforts. They are organizations who derive some political or commercial benefit from being well represented at the conference and most are repeat planning or financial partners that we welcome back each year. We also welcome non-profit partners and exhibitors including museums, colleges, universities, municipalities, preservation-related non-profit affiliations, and many more.

Visit the Agenda page of the www.azpreservation.com website for more information. A preliminary agenda is posted as soon as a good portion of it is completed sometime in mid-February.  We will send out an email and post the notice on our Facebook page and Twitter account (@AZPreservation) when the agenda is available for review before the conference.

2017 Conference Agenda

It is likely we will have at least one and perhaps two booksellers at the 2017 conference.
