For the last decade and a half, PhiusCon (formerly North American Passive House Conference) has been the preeminent high-performance building event in the Western Hemisphere. And with the 16th iteration of the conference quickly approaching, we want to make sure you’re aware of all PhiusCon 2022 (Oct. 25-28 in Chicago) has to offer.

Between new tracks of programming, twists on classic types of sessions, significant additions to Pre-Conference, and much more, we decided to break it all down for you. And since this will be our 16th conference, we thought it appropriate to list 16 reasons you should attend PhiusCon 2022 at the historic Palmer House Hotel in Chicago (even though there are many more).

We hope you enjoy the list and take the time to peruse the accompanying hyperlinks to explore the variety of sessions and other happenings at this year’s conference.

Note: If you are a Phius Alliance member, be on the lookout in your email inbox early next week for the PhiusCon member discount codes.
