“The built world is powered by our oldest industry—one that is slow to move and slow to change. With every connection we make and every event we hold, we've seen the value of starting conversations and bringing people together, first hand.”

BuiltWorlds invites CE readers to attend the following upcoming events.

Title: Future Workforce Conference
Location: Chicago, IL
Link: https://builtworlds.com/event/future-workforce-conference/


An aging workforce, a lack of diversity, concerns about personal safety, a lack of understanding about how to attract millennials and a reluctance to adopt technology are all contributing factors to the decline in available construction talent.Nonetheless, the reality is that our emerging workforce is not meeting the evolving needs of the industry, and because of it, companies are consistently turning away projects. And thus, profits.

The Future Workforce Conference will feature more than 20 world experts in recruiting and HR to discuss how to solve the industry’s workforce dilemma once and for all. The event will feature specific front-line case studies of successful recruiting tactics from industry leaders, interactive breakout sessions to get to the core of workforce issues and speed networking to help attendees meet like-minded senior leaders who are exploring similar solutions.

Date: Feb. 22, 2018
Title: Projects Conference
Location: New York, NY

Projects are the heart of how the built world thinks. Whether it’s planning a city or neighborhood, developing skyscrapers and buildings, designing an airport, building a bridge or otherwise, work is defined in terms of projects. And it’s no secret that the process of planning and executing  projects has been forever altered by emerging technology. No stakeholder is exempt; developers, real estate executives, architects, engineers, contractors, built tech creators and facilities manager are all equally responsible for making sense of the technology infiltrating the market. This event will feature case studies of technology adoption on major projects from around the world straight from the experts who completed them.

Date: April 11-April 13, 2017
Title: BuiltWorlds' Summit
