Advancing Construction

Founded in 2015, Advancing Construction is a series of niche conferences for the AECO community. Our mission is to enable firms to benchmark best practice, share lessons learned and accelerate the adoption of emerging technology. We are here to help you deliver projects on time, on budget and on scope.

What Makes Advancing Construction Unique?

Led by the AECO Community

The speaker faculty and audience for each event is dominated by contractors, owners and design firms. Our focus is on sharing real world case studies, how others have ‘done it’ and the lessons they learned along the way. We limit the role of vendors to ensure AECO-led presentations are prioritized.

Professionally Researched Agendas

Before we invite a single speaker, we conduct lengthy research calls with industry practitioners. We understand the challenges you and your peers are facing, and develop an agenda that directly tackles the root causes. This ensures every presentation aligns with your learning needs.

Detail Through Niche Focus

Each of our events is restricted to a niche focus, often aligned to a specific job function or industry trend. This ensures that we have the time to dig deeper and discuss the details that you need to hear.

Targeted Networking

As our events are designed around a niche audience with a specific challenge, and are typically intimately sized, attendees are enabled to develop much deeper relationships with peers, often forming career-long friendships and partnerships which would never have occurred at a large expo.
