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.
