The Built Network for the Next Generation of Architects + Engineers

The built industry is changing.
Time to upgrade your networking game.

“Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

For years now, you’ve been attending the same networking events, meeting the same people and hearing from the same speakers.

And sure, things have been going fine with your business but “innovation” has become a forgetting concept sitting in a dusty corner. You’ve been using the same tools, the same technologies, and the same software for as long as you can remember.

Meanwhile, the industry has been transforming right outside your front door. Komatsu is developing automated bulldozers. Clune utilizes an in-house virtual construction team for their projects. Panasonic built and manages a smart city outside of Denver International Airport.

Uber sent cab companies and the transportation industry running for the hills, desperately trying to react to a disintegrating business model instead of being able to proactively tackle it. So whether you want to believe it or not, the Uber Moment is coming for the infrastructure industry and those same old networking buddies won’t even know how to begin to help you when the latest technologies turn your business upside down.

You need to be meeting the right people who understand that innovation is the lifeblood of every business. You need to be learning about the latest trends from the leading experts in the field.

And that’s where BuiltWorlds comes in.

This summer in Chicago, we’re hosting two events to help architects and engineers learn about the trends and technologies you'll need to stay at the forefront of built innovation:


Cities Conference | July 19

We’ve been hearing for years about the enormous infrastructure needs facing cities, that cities are “disrupt-able” and ripe for change. But what’s often left out of the conversation is how to capitalize on it.

The Cities Conference is a full-day premium event that will help you make sense of the crucial changes coming to our cities, including transit, waste, water, energy, buildings, and social infrastructure. And our speakers won’t be presenting “pie-in-the-sky” ideas. Instead, they’ll show off real case studies from successful cities around the world with real takeaways for your next project.

Speakers include


Buildings 2.0 Conference | August 23

Sensor-enabled smart buildings that know when they need cleaning, heating or cooling. Buildings that harness rainwater, use less and recycle more. Resiliency buildings that withstand disaster.

At Buildings 2.0, we’ll explore the emerging technologies disrupting buildings, the major players dominating the marketing, how to pay for the latest features, how to stay competitive, and more. The day before, we’ll also be hosting a half-day, members-only conference on the Future of Retail. We’ll explore how buildings can be designed with the latest technologies to attract shoppers.

Now, no matter how amazing the speaker line-up or fascinating the panel topics, it can be hard to justify the $300+ ticket price and it’s definitely going to raise some eyebrows if you rack up almost $1000 attending conferences over three months.

Thankfully, BuiltWorlds wants to make sure you stay on the right side of your accounting department
