Three Can’t-Miss Events at the 2023 Paris Summit

BuiltWorlds is thrilled to be returning to France again this summer to host the 2023 Paris Summit June 21 through June 23. The summit consists of events focused on innovation within the construction industry, emerging technologies and trends, and how to lead in a globalized industry.

2022 Summit Recap

The 2022 BuiltWorlds EAME Summit began with a visit to the XtreeE Robotics site, led by Jean-Daniel Kuhn, Co-Founder and Managing Director of XtreeE. The company assists construction companies by producing projects with 3D printing, which shortens production time and acts as a sustainable solution. XtreeE conducted a live demonstration showing the 3D printing robot in action. Leveraging this printing technology over more traditional tools will create a significantly lower carbon impact, while also saving money and materials too.

Last year’s Demo Day Competition was hosted at VINCI’s Leonard Facility. The event gave startups the chance to present their innovative solutions to a group of investors who are keenly interested in built world technology. The categories that investors focus on include ConstrucTech, PropTech, Smart City Tech, and FinTech. RodRadar was the winner of last year’s Demo Day. At the cutting edge of sensor technology, RodRadar provides inventive RADAR solutions that have the ability to detect obstacles even in difficult environments and under challenging conditions.

A closing reception was hosted at the Winter Garden of the Westin Vendome, which highlighted the winners from the summit and celebrated the completion of  the 2022 summit.

3. Global Innovators Dinner
BuiltWorlds publishes a list of the Top 50 Global Innovators annually, which pays homage to the pioneering role that leading global AECO organizations take to prepare the built environment for the future.
