Live From MCAA, ConTechTrio Eyes CEO BuiltWorld Forum
Peyton Manning… Shaquille O’Neal… Sheryl Crow…
… James Benham?
Yes, the stars are out in force this week in Orlando for the Mechanical Contractors Association of America‘s annual convention and trade show. Among the luminaries on hand, aside from the celebrity athletes and entertainers, are three recognized industry tech taste makers, all now affiliated with Bryan TX-based JBKnowledge: Benham, the firm’s CEO; plus Atlanta-based consultants Rob McKinney and Josh Bone. Each has the somewhat rare distinction of being better known by an industry nickname: i.e. JBKnowledge (James); ConAppGuru (Rob); and BIM2TheBone (Josh).
In late January, the future radio hall-of-famers (AEC wing) burst onto the podcast scene, launching a weekly audio show — ConTech Trio — focused on the latest construction technology trends and updates, and featuring interviews with prominent AEC tech players. Broadcasting this week from the MCAA Convention, the show’s guests include BuiltWorlds co-founder Matt Abeles.
Just last week, Abeles learned that the ConTech Trio would also be doing a “live” podcast next month from the Chicago Athletic Association, site of our industry’s first CEO Tech Forum.
