Cloud-based construction management software provider Aconex is partnering with the Victorian government to host the second annual ‘Construction Technology Summit’ to be held on October 25, 2017 in Melbourne.

“The Summit is designed to demonstrate how some of the world’s biggest and most successful projects are leveraging technology to deliver better outcomes, and explore how digital technologies are likely to shape the sector for years to come,” says Aconex CEO Leigh Jasper.

According to Philip Dalidakis, Victoria’s minister for Small Business, Innovation and Trade, this summit is all part and parcel of his government’s strategy to increase employment in the construction and building sector in the state.

“Our construction technologies strategy will enable the sector to grow by adopting new digital technologies and leveraging Victoria’s exceptional capabilities in research, education, supply chain and project delivery.”

“This is essential for enhancing all phases of the construction life cycle, while creating rewarding, highly skilled and secure jobs for Victorians,” says Dalidakis.

The overarching themes of the Summit will be construction digitisation; the emerging opportunities to improve productivity, reduce risk and better manage complexity; and the likely impacts of technology trends for owners, governments, contractors, developers, consultants and subcontractors. 

The agenda for the full day event includes a range of keynote presentations, case studies and panel discussions and will also include speakers from Aconex, AI Group, Boston Consulting Group, AECOM, Lendlease, Roberts Pizzarotti, Richard Crookes Construction, Women & Leadership Australia, Honeywell and EY Sweeney.
