Product Expo '08 - For Architects

Kuiken Brothers offers a full day of educational events for architects.  Earn up to 4 AIA/CES credits before the year is over!  You are also invited to attend any of the Green Building Seminars presented by John Wagner, but please note that unfortunately those events DO NOT qualify for AIA/CES credits.  Before you complete the seminar, please make sure to take a walk through the show floor to check out the latest products on the market. Stay a step ahead…

Unfortunately we are at capacity for all architect AIA/CES and will no longer be accepting reservations. We hope to still see you at the Product Expo – make sure to register for our Contractor Connection e-newsletter and be the first to know about future architect seminars.
