New Home Trends Summit

Consumer and Design Insights to Compete and Differentiate

Each year, the smartest executives in community and home design meet to learn from each other and build a network that helps them make informed decisions year-round. Executives will network, share their recent successes as well as lessons learned, and listen to provocative educational speakers.

The 2023 New Home Trends Summit (formerly the Housing Design Summit) will begin on Wednesday, February 22, with a welcome dinner and will continue on Thursday, February 23, for an all-day event with keynote speakers and panels, capped off with a networking reception.  Additionally, on Wednesday the 22nd we will be hosting our invite-only council meetings and we will be offering an optional tour of Harvest and Pecan Square, two master-planned communities by Hillwood Communities before the dinner.
