CSI Master Specifiers Retreat
July 22-24, 2020
Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa
Palm Beach (Manalapan), Florida
The CSI Master Specifiers Retreat is a hosted-buyer, three-day event for specifiers and architects who make product recommendations to meet with top product reps to learn and network. CSI’s Master Specifiers Retreat (MSR) is an exclusive, by invitation-only event. Qualifying specifiers and architects, who are selected, attend free of charge. This includes complimentary hotel accommodations and a travel voucher up to $500. Travel vouchers can be used for airfare or driving to the event.
Product manufacturer representatives host the event and select specifier/architect attendees. Selection criteria include:
• Company background and qualifications
• Description of current projects
• Dollar amount and type of recent specifications
• Specifications written in relationship to the companies participating (this can vary by event)
Product manufacturers are also interested in making new connections, so multiple year attendance at past MSR events may influence whether you are selected. Time in the industry, geographic proximity to the event and leadership in CSI do not influence selection.
