About Our Conferences & Topics:


Whether we’re planning a city or neighborhood, developing skyscrapers and buildings, designing an airport, building a bridge, or otherwise, we think about our work in terms of projects. And it’s no secret that the process of planning and executing our projects has been forever altered by emerging technology (hello drones, IoT, advanced software, A.I./machine learning). At Projects, we offer the playbook you need to deliver faster, better, and more affordable projects.


  • Project Software Communication
  • Safety
  • Project Case Studies
  • Innovation Culture


    GC’s and Construction Executives
    As the professionals in charge of executing large-scale building projects, it’s up to them to make sure their company is using the most relevant technology to run an efficient, collaborative job site. Our slate of speakers and technology experts will introduce them to the latest technologies and softwares that can make this happen.

    VDCs, Project Managers, & Field Managers
    As the true leaders in the creation of technology products that impact our building processes, these individuals must find creative ways to integrate solutions into the field. That starts with understanding the different technology options available to them on the market, where to start when implementing these solutions, and how to get executives to buy into investing in new tech.

    Real Estate Developers and Owners
    They’re in charge of the maintenance and operations of buildings (which project management plays a crucial role in) and are the decision makers investing in new technology. Understanding the full landscape of industry trends, evolving standards, and end-user needs is crucial for them and the Projects Conferences gives them that chance.


    The built world has a major workforce dilemma. An aging workforce, an ongoing labor shortage, a lack of understanding about how to attract millennials, and a reluctance to adopt technology are all contributing factors. At Future Workforce Conferences, we feature 20+ experts in recruiting and HR in AEC/RE to talk about how to solve our industry’s workforce dilemma once and for all. We feature specific front-line case studies of successful recruiting tactics from industry leaders, interactive breakout sessions to get to the ‘core’ of your workforce issues and networking to help you meet like-minded senior leaders who are exploring similar solutions.

    Buildings 2.0 Conferences

    Sensor-enabled smart buildings that know when they need cleaning, heating or cooling. Buildings that harness rainwater, use less and recycle more. Resiliency buildings that withstand disaster. These are just some of the examples of how A.I., machine learning, IoT, and other emerging technologies have infiltrated our buildings. Features like these are incredible and promising, with the potential to improve the environment, the longevity of the building, and the lifestyle of the end user. The problem? These technologies aren’t necessarily easy — or inexpensive — to implement.

    Buildings Operations + Maintenance
    They’re the final decision makers of investing in new technology and need to understand the full landscape of industry trends, standards, and end-user needs to evolve their buildings into buildings of the future.

    As a leader in creation of technology products that impact our buildings, they must find creative ways to integrate their solution into the world’s buildings.


    Venture Conferences are full-day premium events exploring venture investment in the AEC and real estate space, exclusively for invited guests and BuiltWorlds Venture Forum members. We gather the world’s foremost industry experts in venture capital and built world tech to show you the current landscape of venture in the built world, analyze the tech trends that we predict will turn into widespread adoption, and hear from startup darlings who’ve secured significant funding and carved out a market niche in our industry. At Venture, we target executives of venture firms, the CEOs of cutting-edge startups, and the leaders of AEC and real estate venture arms from major corporations.

    We’ve been hearing for years about the enormous infrastructure needs facing cities, that cities are “disrupt-able” and ripe for change. But what’s often left out of the conversation is how to capitalize on it. The Cities Conferences are full-day premium events that will help you make sense of the crucial changes coming to our cities, including transit, waste, water, energy, buildings, and social infrastructure. And our speakers don't present “pie-in-the-sky” ideas. Instead, they show off real case studies from successful cities around the world with real takeaways for your next project.
