Our annual Congress, launched in 1992, is CNU’s flagship event. Each year, 1500+ attendees convene to hear from speakers, participate in workshops, collaborate on projects, and learn new strategies from leaders across the placemaking field. Each Congress offers attendees the chance to experience and connect with an inspiring host region. Our 100+ speakers and workshop leaders challenge attendees to broaden their thinking on design, development, engineering, health, equity, and climate, to name a few topics. CNU’s Congress is the leading international gathering for people and organizations building places people love.
