RATERFEST 2013 – CHANGE OF VENUE
Raterfest 2013 is still on! Click here for details on Raterfest Location and Directions.
“RaterFest! 2012 was unlike any other building performance conference I’ve ever been to. It felt more like a retreat where you could reconnect with old friends and hear some excellent presentations by top-notch experts. It was a unique and valuable experience. I’ll be back next year!”
September 13 – 15

New to RaterFest! – Pecha Kucha
We will also offer a Pecha Kucha session after dinner one evening – this exciting hour-long session will include 9 brief presentations lasting for 6 minutes, 40 seconds each. All attendees are encouraged to apply to present - the 1st 9 attendees to contact us with a viable (short) topic will be added to the agenda. Moderated by Chris Dorsi, this session should make for a fun, interactive evening.
* To apply for the Pecha Kucha session, please contact Meagan at email@example.com.
RaterFest! 2013 will take place from September 13th – 15th, 2013. While we are still working on firming up the schedule, please plan for the event to run from 10:00am on Friday, September 13th to 12:00pm on Sunday, September 15th.
We encourage out-of-state attendees to arrive on Thursday evening, whenever possible, to ensure an on-site arrival Friday morning. The event will conclude just before 12:00pm (noon) on Sunday, so it is advised to get a flight no earlier than 4:00pm that day.
Please take a look at our FAQ document that will answer some of the questions you may have about the retreat. Please also feel free to contact Meagan at firstname.lastname@example.org with any additional questions.
We are also excited to announce that have a new venue lined up: Trinity Mountain Ranch, located in the beautiful mountains near Black Hawk, CO. While many of our attendees enjoy the bunk-style accommodations and camping opportunities that the retreat provides, this new venue will also allow those travelling with family or those who desire more privacy the option of staying in area hotels or cabins.
Some highlights of this year’s venue include:
- Premium views of snow-capped mountain peaks, 70 acres of explorable property, Golden Gate State Park right next door
- Variety of great activities: two stocked fishing lakes, full size grass baseball field, basketball courts, volleyball court, 3 fire pits, private mountain meadow, and lots of great hiking opportunities.
Hear from past attendees, in their own words:
“This was my first RaterFest and I loved it. The overall energy of the conference was great and I think that there is something special about being at 7000′ with no cell phone service. The size and remoteness of this conference make it a unique experience. I felt that I really connected with some folks and did not miss the oversized tradeshow atmosphere one bit.”
“RaterFest is truly unique within the mix of home performance conferences–national in scope yet small and intimate, high level, attracting a very unique group of professionals from the industry, and NOT in a Holiday Inn ballroom! My favorite event of the year.”
“Honestly, I was anticipating a bunch of nerds discussing building science. Turns out raterfest brought together the funnest, most dynamic group of people I have been with in a long time. There was no shortage of building science talk, but it was blended with the perfect amount of laughter, and beer, to make me want to come back again and again. Thanks for a great weekend!”
