The construction industry has experienced significant growth over the past decade, with consistently high backlogs and continued investment in the commercial sector. However, worrying signs are out there: a chronic skilled labor shortage, tariffs on steel and other building materials, and a looming election that could shift the balance of power nationwide. Are these indicators of a looming recession, or merely blips on the economy’s long-term growth curve? Gain critical insight into the state of the economy now and, more importantly, how to prepare for in the coming year.

Taking place every spring, AWCI's Convention & INTEX Expo brings people together from the United States and internationally for the industry’s premier trade show, in-depth education sessions and stellar networking receptions.
Leadership styles change from generation to generation, influenced by everything from technology to life experiences. As a result, tomorrow’s industry leaders will look decidedly different from those in charge today. Today’s CEO plays a critical role in preparing the next generation to successfully lead the men and women of the construction industry. Learn what that role entails and how the relationship between baby boomers/Gen X leaders and their millennial/Gen Z protégés is critical to the survival of the industry.
“Construction is an inherently dangerous occupation.” It’s a refrain long-heard around an industry where, on average, three injuries occur per every 100 workers. Yet there are hundreds of construction firms whose proactive, people-centered approach to safety has resulted in a significant decrease in injury and illness rates. Learn from a panel of safety professionals whose continued pursuit of a zero incident job site helps the construction industry as a whole in its quest for world-class safety performance.
The construction industry has come a long way from steam shovels, hot iron rivets and hand-drawn blueprints. With each wave of technical innovation has come an increase in productivity through streamlined work processes and risk reduction. As a new wave of technology—from exoskeletons to 5-D BIM modeling to onsite prefabrication—begins to enter the industry, will their promise to improve productivity (and profits) be realized, or have we reached technology overload?
Communicating with others is critical to the success of any company—especially for those in the construction industry. Architects, project managers, suppliers, employees all make up the diverse project team, and successfully communicating with each factors into the success—or failure—of a job. Learn how to navigate these relationships and communicate your message to each team member through various mediums to ensure that everyone is working together on a path toward success.
