As the recognized international authority on tall buildings, CTBUH conferences differ significantly from the many commercial conferences now being held around the world, in terms of both quality of knowledge-sharing and networking opportunities (see industry leader endorsement statement here). Dissemination of best-practice information is of primary importance at every CTBUH conference. Thus, every presentation given at the 2019 World Congress will be substantiated by an abstract/paper and captured in the form of powerpoints and videos for dissemination after the event. All delegates will receive a USB drive at the event, containing a PDF of every PowerPoint to be given at the Congress. In addition, an extensive report and archive of the Congress and all the material presented will be collated afterwards. To see past versions of our post-conference archives, see the links below:

- 2016 Shenzhen, Guangzhou & Hong Kong Conference
- 2015 New York Conference
- 2014 Shanghai Conference
- 2013 London Conference
- 2012 Shanghai Congress
In addition to a USB, all delegates will also receive a Congress bag containing the Congress Guide, the Congress Proceedings, the Congress themed journal issue, a delegate list of all attendees, and a namebadge and lanyard. See below for more information.
Every Congress delegate will receive a USB drive containing a digital copy of all abstracts and every presentation given at the Congress. This USB drive is carried by attendees throughout the event and, importantly, also continues to be used by delegates as a normal USB drive long after the event has ended. Printed on the USB is the logo of the sponsoring company.

Every Congress attendee is given a high-quality delegate bag upon arrival at registration, containing Congress documentation and other items. This bag is usually carried by attendees throughout the event and is also used by many afterwards. The design changes each year, but will often include imagery related to the Congress theme, as well as the logo of the sponsoring company.

Name Badge Lanyard
A Congress name badge, holding color-coded name tags, will be worn by every attendee. The lanyard (neck string/strap) will occupy a prominent position around every delegate’s neck, giving the sponsoring company a high degree of brand visibility through the inclusion of their logo on the lanyard.
