Join us for the inaugural Emerging Trends in A/E/C Marketing and Business Development Roundtable

While we crossed our fingers and hoped that a market U-turn would take us back to anything resembling pre-pandemic conditions, the last year has proven that’s just wishful thinking. Not only is it clear that business will continue to change, the factors influencing our work continue to expand exponentially. Talent, technology, sustainability, inflation, legislation and client expectations all add up to more than a simple change management plan can address. These troubling friction points and growing pains affect every firm no matter your size or where you do business.

As leaders, how can we take inventory of the difficult decisions we face and give them any sense of priority?

The SMPS Foundation assembles the best minds in the A/E/C industry to provide insights on the future of marketing and business development. We invite firm leaders to join the SMPS Foundation and colleagues to dive into the latest trends, opportunities and challenges that face our industry. This roundtable will provide opportunities for robust discussion and the space to exchange ideas on the most crucial issues that will shape the A/E/C industry over the next 12-24 months.

Your participation and insights will be key to shaping the SMPS Foundation’s 2024-2025 research and educational initiatives, as well as the A/E/C industry as a whole.
