World of Modular Registrations Top 500; Ahead of Last Year’s Record Crowd!


With just over one month until MBI’s World of Modular Conference at the Cosmopolitan Resort in Las Vegas, registrations continue to roll in. Last year, the show attracted 850 attendees, the largest for any modular construction conference ever. But the March 15-18, 2019 show promises to be even bigger and better.


Returning to WOM is the highly informative (and entertaining) Anirban Basu, CEO and Chairman of Sage Policy Group and Chief Economist for Associated Builders and Contractors. He serves as Chairman of the Maryland Economic Development Commission and teaches global strategy at Johns Hopkins University.

Darren Woodson

Keynote speaker and three-time Super Bowl Champion, Darren Woodson of the Dallas Cowboys will talk about “Creating a Culture of Excellence.” Other breakout sessions include presentations by Katerra, GreenStaxx, ManufactOn, Prescient, Stack Modular, Tocci Building Group, RAD Technology, Momentum Innovation Group, Falcon Structures, and Precisions Structural Engineering.

There will also be a series of workshops by the National Renewable Energy Lab, business workshops by Bob Wendover of Common Sense Enterprises and Alicia Corten, CEO of The Culture Company, and presentations from the University of Alberta School of Engineering and Washington State University.

WOM will also feature over 120 case study presentations on display and global best practices sessions. Rounding out the line-up will be sessions on issues ranging from technical, legal, sales, building codes, taxes, and engineering.

The business development opportunities at WOM are second to none. Here’s what a few recent attendees had to say about the show:

"I have been attending trade shows and conferences across North America for the past 20 years, and none of them match the quality and delivery that this conference does. If you are in the modular construction industry as a manufacturer, fleet owner, contractor, or vendor to the industry, this is a “must attend" event."

"We just joined the Modular Building Institute and attended the World of Modular event. It exceeded all our expectations. There is tremendous value into this program."

"As a first time attendee at the World of Modular my experience was exceptional. Not only was I able to make great connections in the industry, but my experience was educational, informative, and fun. I am excited to attend 2019 World of Modular and other MBI related events."

If you are a material or service provider to the construction industry, you should know that a whopping 91% of attendees last year said they planned to purchase products from exhibitors. We’ve made learning about the modular construction easy by putting the entire North American industry in one location for you! So, what are you waiting for?
