2021 BuiltWorlds Construction Tech Conference

Learn How Emerging Technology is Changing the Way We Build.




Hyatt Lodge Oakbrook 2815 Jorie Blvd Oakbrook, IL 60523

With Special Thanks to The BuiltWorlds Catalyzers: Committed to a More Digitally Enabled Industry

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

Speakers to Be Announced.
