for the February 4 event is open now. Dates and times of additional events and topics will be announced soon.
Under the banner of the largest construction trade show in North America, CONEXPO-CON/AGG Tech Talks are the only construction-focused live or on-demand educational opportunity for contractors to hear firsthand from the equipment industry experts.
The series will kick-off via livestream on February 4 at 12:30 PST/2:30 CST, with a behind-the-scenes look of the building of the Las Vegas underground people mover project.
Additional technology topics to support construction contractor education
Industry experts, like Jenny Krasny, Operational Risk Consultant with Caterpillar of Australia and Scott Brown, Managing Partner with Construction Technology Partners will bring their latest business advice to enhance tech adoption in the construction sector.
"One of the most underestimated features of technology is the breadth and depth of its reach - emotionally, culturally and physically," said Krasny.
During the series, contractors will have the opportunity to learn how and why they will see a return on investment when growing their business.
Brown added, "It is going to be vital for contractors to understand and adopt available technologies as the skilled labor gap increases, and increasingly tighter schedule and quality tolerances are expected at the same rates as many years ago."
On-demand education will launch after the livestream event and includes:
- Machine Control
- Grade Control
- Team Development
- Cost Justification
- Product Overviews
"Attendees at CONEXPO-CON/AGG count on the education we bring them to provide a real-world perspective of how they can grow their business," said Brooke Konopacki, Director, Education Content at the Association of Equipment Manufacturers, show sponsor for CONEXPO-CON/AGG. "This event will help contractors make an impact on their bottom line with technology they already own until we meet again in Las Vegas in 2023."
