What’s Coming in 2017?

I launched AEC-Business.com in June 2012.  I will continue publishing this blog and podcast in the coming year. My focus is on innovative and game-changing people, companies, products, and services in the construction industry. Based on what we’ve already seen, 2017 will be a very interesting year in this respect.

I’ve done some successful webinars in the past. I’ve also streamed live video from a few events. The AEC Hackathon Helsinki videos from June got over 18,000 views. Encouraged by these experiences, I’m planning on doing webinars on topics like virtual/augmented reality, startups, service productization, and interesting products/services. To be able to do that, I’m looking for partners who’d like to reach the most influential and enterprising audience in construction.
