WASHINGTON, July 24, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ --  Hanley Wood, the premier information, media, event, and strategic marketing services company serving the residential, design, and commercial construction industries, announced today the dean lineup and event itinerary for its third annual HIVE conference, scheduled for November 28 and 29 in Austin. Bringing together the brightest minds and talents to address challenges in housing, HIVE acts as an incubator of forward-looking ideas, inspirations, and inventions that will enhance the way builders, architects, land developers, and place-makers think and work.

"In just two years, HIVE has uncovered the desperate need for innovation in housing, catalyzing new discussion and bringing in valuable insight from other industries," said Peter Goldstone, CEO of Hanley Wood. "And now, in its third year, HIVE is channeling that energy and momentum into exploring solutions to a critical, nationwide issue—the need for more attainable housing. Together the HIVE community will work on and deliver true solutions to housing products, design and development processes, and policies to put housing within everyone's reach and to meet the ever-growing demand."

The 2018 HIVE Conference will offer a two-day line up with keynote addresses and educational content presented by innovative thought leaders, including CEOs, architects, authors, economists, and educators. Content and discussions will be driven by five transformative forces: Building Technology, Capital, Design, Strategy and Intel.

"This year's conference, Reignite the Dream: Affordability for Purpose and Profit, is both a challenge and a commitment," said John McManus, vice president and Editorial Director-Residential Group of Hanley Wood. "It's a challenge for stakeholders to bring forward bright-spot technologies, opportunities, and areas of progress to bear that will result in solutions. It's a commitment by HIVE to inspire the industry to create social impact, a cohesive purpose, and new opportunity areas for profitability."
