The 2022 Global Summit


6.15.2022 - 6.16.2022


Paris, France ,

Thrive in a global economy.

June 15th and 16th, for the reintroduction of our live and in-person Global Summit, we plan to return to Paris. Drawing from the expert perspectives of community members across Europe, African, and The Middle East, we plan to gain uniquely valuable insights around how innovations like AI, robotics and smart buildings are continuously changing the way we work, how venture funds are playing a large part in the sector in that region of the world and beyond, and much more. With information and technology increasingly connecting the world, every company, regardless of size and location, must understand the impact, opportunities, and challenges of thinking globally. 

Venue Details | June 15-16, 2022

Day One:

BuiltWorlds Analyst Luncheon: 12:00 –1:30 pm
All members and sponsors are invited to join us at our Exclusives Analyst Luncheon

Workshop: 2:00 – 3:30 pm

Topic: Digitalization gap vs productivity gap in the construction industry
In the last few months, lots of startups and tech-based solutions have appeared in the Contech ecosystem aiming to solve industry pain points. Digitalization flow has brought different benefits, such as time savings. However, productivity still remains as a huge pain point, since there have not been radical changes. How has digitalization not disrupted the industry yet?
