How Will Your Built Company Adapt To The Tech Revolution?


Nearly 10 years ago today, we were months away from the worst recession in decades.

Here we are in 2017, and change is -- once again -- upon us. But this time, not in the form of financial crisis, but in a technological revolution and strategic globalization.

So the question begs: How will your company adapt to disruptive change?

As a leader, it’s your job to figure it out, and others are counting on you. But luckily, you don’t have to answer this question on your own.

At the BuiltWorlds Summit this May, we're hosting 150 of the most respected CEOs, executives, and strategists from across the built industries for three days of collaborative, actionable problem solving. We'd like to personally invite you to be a part of it.

It’s a group of some of the smartest and most innovative leaders you’ll meet. And aside from what you’ll learn from each other, the personal connections you’ll leave with will have you feeling supported, reenergized, and confident about the steps ahead of you.


Do you want to:

  • Work through your business pain points with a group of trustworthy executives who are facing the same issues?

  • Meet and build real personal relationships with other well-known executives and founders from across your industry?

  • Hear the latest updates on critical industry topics like Smart Cities, Augmented and Virtual Reality, the Next Generation Of Tools, Equipment, And Materials, BIM And Construction Innovation, and More?

  • Get real feedback on your brand/product from proven thought leaders, rather than expensive consultants, in a trusted, intimate setting?

If so, you'll want to join us at the Summit this May.
