The Future of Housing: 2016 HIVE Conference Highlights


From September 28-29, we gathered with other ardent professionals at the first-ever Housing Innovation, Vision & Economics (HIVE) conference in Los Angeles. Industry leaders from the  construction, design, business, public policy and education fields came together to discover ideas and create discourse about “the future of how people live, work and play.”

Throughout the two-day conference, attendees dove in depth in the housing field – connecting through conversation and technology. From keynote speaker presentations to networking breakfasts, attendees discussed the latest product innovations and services in addition to developing ideas about future product technologies that could change how professionals in the building industry think and work.

Specifically, our own Mark Kuntz, senior vice president and deputy general manager, took part in a 30-minute panel with other supplier professionals. Kuntz and other panelists engaged in discussion about how companies, like us, are integrating innovation into the development of products, culture and programs.

We were pleased to be an alliance sponsor of the inaugural #HIVELA2016, and look forward to hearing about the many new ideas and initiatives that are a result of this incredible dialogue.
