Then learn how to access these rich opportunities, plus  dig up everything you need to know about funding these opportunities, obtaining bonding and much more!!.

A full day devoted to the identification of billions of dollars of construction opportunities presented by some of the largest project owners in the region.

 

The Conference.

As owners and key managers in the building industry sometimes you feel very isolated.  Whether you're running a job or in pursuit of that next contract, it can be easy to get so focused on the day-to-day tasks required of your busy schedule that you don’t take time to improve your knowledge of the industry, learn about the newest trends or best practices or connect with future business partners.  

Now in its 7th year, the Construction Industry Conference provides a unique experience where ambitious business owners can learn, discover, connect, celebrate and help shape the future of their businesses.  The Conference integrates business operations learnings and business connectivity with personal enrichment seamlessly blended to deliver a business conference unsurpassed in the industry.


This is a place for professionals to experience everything they need to find success – the ideas, the connections and the practical skills.  We do this by combining exceptional business minds with outstanding subject matters to deliver exceptional workshops and training, networking, and facilitation of information on business opportunities.  

It is both inspiring and hands-on learning.

 

So, whether you’re an annual participant or attending for the first time, you’ll be part of an experience like no other.
