PSA Podcast – Recent AEC Conference Takeaways + Networking Tips



For today’s GBM Podcast, we want to talk about conferences. Let’s talk about, in particular, two AEC conferences, our host, Charlie Cichetti, attended in June 2023. We’ll also share some networking best practices while you’re at your own conferences.
One of the first conferences our team attended to was at the very beginning of June, and the AIA Conference this year was in San Francisco. There were about 15,000 attendees!
Another conference our technology team attended was NXT BLD / NXT DEV in London June 20th & 21st, hosted by AEC Magazine, with about 500 attendees. It was really unique to be in one room where you had architects, tech startups, journalists, and investors – all collaborating and talking about the future of design & construction including AI & Data.
