Innovation in Housing

Innovation and rapid change are transforming industries around the world. The pace of change can be so fast that it’s important to see beyond the horizon to know what’s coming. The affordable housing industry is no exception.

Join us in Newport News on May 24th & 25th for the next HousingX "un-conference," featuring dynamic keynotes, exhibits of innovative housing technologies, and more. Learn more here.

Explore the innovations that are transforming the affordable housing industry.

In 2019, our first HousingX “un-conference” saw over 300 participants and over 20 speakers and presenters, plus an innovative Experience Lab demonstrating the latest advances in the field. This year, we aim to go beyond that.
