On November 5-6, 2018 in Houston, the Page Foundation in partnership with 100 Resilient Cities hosted AdRESS (Advocating Resilience through Environmental and Social Solutions) – Connecting the Conversations.

The 1.5 day event, facilitated by BuildingGreen President Nadav Malin, brought together corporate, non-profit, academic, government, and A/E stakeholders. 

Conversations focused on reducing the impacts of climate events and building stronger communities through preparedness and comprehensive strategies for social and economic resilience.

AdRESS was held in the heart of downtown Houston at the historic Union Station lobby. The early 20th-century railroad hub was integrated into the design of Houston's major league baseball stadium and now overlooks the ball park. Free event parking was available.  

Attendees arranged hotel accommodations at the Hyatt Regency Downtown. A limited number of rooms with conference rates were available on a first-come, first-served basis.
