We heard from industry leaders such as the Thomas Mueller: founder of the Canadian Green Building Council, Rob Bernhardt: CEO of Passive House Canada, and Chris Higgins: Green Building Planner at the City of Vancouver among many others from across the industry. Motivational speakers, as well as environmental activists such as David Suzuki were also present to inspire and inform on the dire need for action.

As Titanium sponsor of PAQS 2017, it was incredibly fulfilling for the team at Concosts to see both the success of the event and thought-provoking discussion that came to be. Concosts Group Vice President Matthew Weber is also the President the CIQS (host organization), and led all of the programming at PAQS 2017.
