2023 Construction Tech Conference

Construction Tech Conference Overview:

Previously known as our Projects Conference, we covered the topic in three parts: pre-construction and estimating, project oversight and business intelligence, and smart jobsites. Additionally, we hosted a separate conference to explore advanced equipment and robotics. As these topics have increasingly converged, the Construction Tech Conference is intended to look holistically at how technology is influencing the way we build - from pre-construction through construction functions, in the office as well as in the field. It will be a lot to cover in two days, and, with so much happening, it will surely be an exciting event.

Leading technology adopters, mature solution providers, and upcoming technology solutions gather each year to take the pulse of trends across the industry at the BuiltWorlds Construction Tech Conference.
