JBKnowledge brings traveling construction conference to Atlanta on April 17th
The ConTech Roadshow, a touring tradeshow and conference for the construction industry stops in Atlanta, April 17th. The one-day event includes educational sessions, tech demonstrations, a panel discussion with local construction professionals, and networking opportunities.
The ConTech Roadshow brings some of the construction industry’s brightest stars to Atlanta’s Georgia Tech Global Learning Center on Wednesday, April 17th. JBKnowledge’s ConTech Roadshow kicked off its six-date tour in February in Seattle. Construction professionals passionate about improving their business gather at the one-day event for tech demonstrations, presentations, and local networking opportunities. Partners in bringing The ConTech Roadshow to Atlanta are Mechanical Contractors Association of America and PeerAssist.
Construction, as an industry, has been reluctant to adopt new tools and technology – often relying on antiquated systems. The ConTech Roadshow brings construction thought leaders, innovators, and influencers to major US cities to present the latest in technology to construction professionals in their home cities. Advantages of bringing the conference-to-the-company are local networking opportunities, and a shorter time away from projects as compared to traveling to a conference.
An additional feature of Atlanta’s ConTech Roadshow is the opportunity to receive Construction Financial Management Association continuing professional education (CPE) credits. Professional speakers from all walks of the industry will present on topics including technology adoption, BIM/VDC, Research & Development, and more! Scheduled presenters include JBKnowledge’s CEO, James Benham; The ConTechCrew podcast’s Jeff Sample, Josh Bone of DEWALT, Rob McKinney of Rhumbix, David Epps of Winter Construction, and many more. One of the event’s sessions is a panel discussion with local professionals discussing Atlanta’s unique construction issues, including Carlos Osorio of Mann Construction and Ryan Pastor of Building Point Southeast.
The event will also feature a vendor showcase with the latest tech-driven tools of the trade. Attendees may meet one-on-one at the vendor showcase with dozens of representatives from Assignar, PlanGrid, Autodesk, and eSUB, to name a few. All construction professionals and students are encouraged to attend!
An attendee of an earlier ConTech Roadshow had this advice as to why industry professionals should attend:
“If you are not up–to–date or aware of construction technology then Roadshows should be a must see. You can’t stop the future from coming, but it will definitely stop you if you try to ignore it.”
Registration is still open for The ConTechRoadshow Atlanta. Other cities on the 2019 tour include Chicago, Kansas City, Denver, and Dallas. To register, learn more, or for a complete list of presenters and sessions, visit jbknowledge.com/roadshow.
