WASHINGTON, D.C. (March 5, 2013) — Hanley Wood’s Housing Leadership Summit announced that it is being honored by FOLIO: and min as an inductee into the 2013 FAME Awards Hall of Fame this month. Recognized for cutting-edge content, consistent growth, and understanding the accelerating power of events in the magazine industry, the Housing Leadership Summit joins the ranks of the FOOD & WINE Classic (American Express Publishing), Vanity Fair Oscar Party (Condé Nast), and Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year Awards (Time Inc.), among others, as an inductee into the program this year.

Produced by BUILDER and BIG BUILDER media brands, the Housing Leadership Summit celebrates its 27th anniversary this May and focuses on education, excellence and community building across the residential construction industry. The event is exclusively designed for executive and operational leadership across large-volume public and private home builders and provides strategic vision and tools for improved sales velocity, profitability, and value.

“It is a tremendous honor to have the Housing Leadership Summit recognized by such a prestigious awards program,” said Warren Nesbitt, executive vice president of Hanley Wood Executive Programs. “Since we launched this event in 1987, the Housing Leadership Summit has remained committed to practical and actionable leadership insights for the home building industry. This recognition validates our mission and reinforces the success we have had in assembling and serving this community.”

The FAME Hall of Fame recognizes great events associated with magazine brands or magazine-media companies. These events are at least a decade old—usually much older—and have both markedly changed a market and expanded and enhanced a magazine-media brand's presence in its space. Hall of Fame events have consistently demonstrated growth, innovation, adaptation and durability, and they've dramatically expanded the ways in which people interact with their parent brands. 2013 honorees will be celebrated at the FAME Awards breakfast on March 12, 2013 at the Grand Hyatt in New York City.

The 2013 Housing Leadership Summit will take place May 13-15, 2013 at the Four Seasons at Troon North in Scottsdale, Ariz. For more information, visit www.housingleadershipsummit.comtbvxwqvqdqrqdrafwyrvtdqcrzqtbbcdf.
