Post Venture East Kickoff Meeting

InterContinental 100 Chopin Plaza Miami, FL 33131

Keying on the content of our Buildings Conference, BuiltWorlds is proud to launch a new forum dedicated to anything and everything Building Technology. The official launch of this new forum will be in person on the afternoon of the second day of Venture East.

The goal of this ongoing forum will be to foster connections between forum participants, learn about upcoming technologies and trends in buildings, and discuss challenges building technologists face. The Building Tech forum will include, but will not be limited to; building contractors, developers, material and product suppliers, and building tech startups.

The Buildings Tech Forum will be an opportunity for members to discuss their thoughts on a variety of topics.

Some example topics will be:

  • What does the future building look like?
  • How to improve current buildings?
  • How to build with modular or offsite technologies?
  • How to build more sustainable buildings?
