Master Specifiers Retreat (MSR)

July 10-12, 2024 | The Seabird Resort in Oceanside, CA

CSI's Master Specifiers Retreats (MSRs) provide an opportunity for Building Product Manufacturers to connect and form relationships with Specifiers and Architects from around the US that influence the selection of building products in their firm's projects.


Participating as a manufacturer with a Knowledge Exchange Table gets you 14-16 thirty minute one-on-one meetings with Specifiers and Architects you match with based on mutual interest, and there are multiple excellent networking opportunities at receptions, meals, etc. There are also ways to get additional exposure for your company through sponsorships, and you can find details on those options below. With a maximum of 40-45 product manufacturer companies and around 45-50+ Specifier/Architect attendees, these are intimate events at resort-style properties with around 120 total attendees. 


Top 3 reasons to be part of the July 2024 Master Specifiers Retreat:

  • Meet one-on-one with 14-16 Specifiers/Architects you match with based on mutual interest

  • Master Specifiers Retreat attendees influence/recommend product selections for their projects

  • Build and reinforce name recognition for your company and your products with the select people who matter

Knowledge Exchange Tables

CSI will be selecting approximately 50 Specifiers, Architects and other 

design professionals and product selection influencers from across the

country to attend the July 2024 Master Specifiers Retreat. Participating with

a Knowledge Exchange Table gets you 14-16 thirty minute one-on-one 

meetings with these professionals you match with based on mutual interest,

in addition to the excellent networking opportunities at meals, receptions,


  • Architects and Specifiers apply to attend, and you help choose who is invited. Then
    when the top ranked applicants are invited, you get to rank them again to 
    indicate who you want to meet with, and the Architects and Specifiers do the same, 
    and meeting schedules are created based on that feedback.

  • You receive 14-16 thirty-minute meetings based on mutual interest

  • The small event size (110-120 guests) ensures that you will meet every
    attendee. Networking receptions and dining events are designed for everyone
    to mix and mingle in a friendly and low-stress environment.
