The upcoming Building Systems Housing Summit in Knoxville, Tenn., Sept. 30-Oct. 2, is a great opportunity to discover emerging trends and network with builders, manufacturers and suppliers of modular, panelized, concrete, log and timber frame homes.

The event also gives attendees direct access to top experts in the industry.

USA TODAY recently spoke with 2018 summit speaker Margaret Whelan, CEO of Whelan Advisory, on critical issues like trade worker shortage and the future of systems-built. Whelan represents the financial community and other innovation enablers who help builders and developers better understand the market and provide capital for business creation and expansion.

“We’re at a tipping point where it’s finally just gotten too expensive to build the old-fashioned way,” she said.

Whelan will be in Knoxville discussing the drivers, players and financing options fueling off-site construction in the education session Show Me the Money: Capital Fueling Off-Site Construction.

She will be joined by builder Buddy Raney, who survived the 2008 financial crisis by manufacturing his own building components and vertically integrating Raney Construction. He will share insights about continuing to fund innovation in his company, which has grown to employ over 300 people.

Other valuable sessions will be led experts like Betsy Scott, executive director for program and engagement at the Housing Innovation Alliance; Brian Sielaff, managing member of Tamarack Grove Engineering and NAHB Chief Economist Robert Dietz.
