On the Road Again! Announcing Our 2019 Digital Contractor Roadshows
In 2018, we hit the road and brought the latest construction technology insights and trends directly to contractors all over the country in more than 20 cities. It was the event series everyone was talking about, with more than 600 construction professionals attending.
This year we are thrilled to announce that we are launching a brand new Digital Contractor Roadshow series for 2019. That’s right — we will be visiting even more cities, bringing in new thought leaders and sharing new best practices. technology insights and so much more to help contractors everywhere keep their competitive edge in this era of digital transformation.
A Look at Last Year’s Digital Contractor Series
Last year we had a great time meeting with contractors all over the country and treating them to an afternoon networking reception packed with knowledge from top industry professionals, as well as an informative panel session of Viewpoint customers. We scouted out venues ranging from breweries to fine dining restaurants to create the perfect atmosphere for people to learn, network, and, of course, eat!
“The networking with contractors and speakers made for a good event. The food and atmosphere were nice. Thank you.” — Past Attendee
We brought in five different speakers who are well-known and respected in the construction industry space to share thought-provoking presentations with the group. The topics included strategies for competing in a data driven economy, technology strategic planning, creating an insight driven culture for contractors, emerging trends in the construction industry and building an information bridge between field and office. Attendees were able to discuss and ask questions of each presenter and of one another to maximize their learning experience.
“Keynote content was good and interesting. Thank you for hosting!” — Past Attendee
Perhaps the universal favorite part of the events last year were the customer panels. We invited two or three Viewpoint clients to share their experiences with Viewpoint as a technology partner. Attendees could ask panelists their real questions, identify the common problems and receive advice for how to solve them. By hearing real experiences from other contractors just like them, attendees were pleased to come away with some answers to these challenges. If you want to read some of the discussions that took place during last year’s customer panels, check out these blog posts: A Discussion on Change Management and True Tales about Construction in the Cloud.
“The customer panel was my favorite part. It was really great and insightful to hear from other IT customers on how they are getting the most out of construction technology.” — Past Attendee

These events are short, but packed with learning, so we want to make sure you get credit for that. Plus, it may help you convince your boss to send you — slip that into your email when you ask for permission to attend.
If you attended this event in Minneapolis last year, you got a sneak peek at our new industry expert speaker this year, Bryce Austin. Cyber security expert and bestselling author, Austin gives a compelling and exciting presentation on “Cybersecurity for a Competitive Advantage” that you won’t want to miss. Attendees will take away:

- How to develop an emotional connection with teams in times of crisis.

And of course, we will continue inviting our clients to share their real experiences during a customer panel at every event.
