Landmark Industry Event to be Held in Chicago for the First Time in Its History
NEW YORK – Sept. 28, 2017 – Dodge Data & Analytics will unveil its much-anticipated construction industry forecast at the 79th annual Dodge Construction Outlook Executive Conference, November 1-2, 2017 at the Swissôtel, Chicago. Known as the industry’s premier construction forecasting event, the Dodge Outlook will focus this year on the growing trends of connectivity, collaboration, and integration among design professionals, builders, and the companies that make and supply building products and materials.
The annual forum brings together attendees from across the construction industry – including architects and designers, contractors, engineers and building product manufacturers – to hear vital economic forecasts and guidance for their businesses. Following a positive reception to its debut in 2016, this year’s event will also include the construction outlook for Canada. The conference will culminate in the U.S. outlook for the coming year, a benchmark for the industry, delivered by Dodge Chief Economist Robert Murray.
“This year’s Outlook theme of ‘Connectivity, Collaboration, and Integration’ has been found by our research to be gaining momentum in the industry, particularly between the design and construction communities,” said Mike Petrullo, Chief Executive Officer, Dodge Data & Analytics. “At Outlook 2018, we will focus on this trend, analyzing how it generates powerful efficiencies, reduces cost and schedule overruns, helps ensure safety and quality and increases overall performance for all parties in the project delivery process.”
Outlook 2018 will open with a networking reception November 1 from 6 – 7:30 p.m., with presentations the following day from 8:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. Delivering the luncheon keynote will be Billy Beane, the baseball executive whose innovative statistical methodology of utilizing analytics to identify undervalued assets to create and sustain a competitive advantage has come to be known as the “moneyball” philosophy.
