Construction professionals from across the country are attending JBKnowledge's 2017 ConTech Roadshows for a can't-miss networking opportunity. The ConTech Roadshow is a technology conference for the everyday builder to network with general contractors and subcontractors in their area and learn about the industry tech that could improve their project workflows. The first two stops will be Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on July 13th and Chicago, Illinois on August 22nd.

The 2017 Philadelphia ConTech Roadshow will give attendees the opportunity to gain insight from construction technologists and ConTechTrio podcast hosts, JBKnowledge CEO, James Benham, ConAppGuru, Rob McKinney, and BIM Expert, Josh Bone. In addition to live interviews from the ConTechTrio, attendees can sit in on educational sessions presented by local contractors and top technologists discussing topics ranging from drone regulations and safety management to mobile data security and BIM implementation.

“In order to deliver everything our customers bargained for and a little bit more, we must invest in the right technology tools and continuously improve. I always look forward to JBKnowledge events to confirm we are on track now and learn about what’s in development for future improvements,” stated Robert Moore, President of the West Region at Gray Construction.

All four ConTech Roadshows, powered by the Mechanical Contractors Association of America (MCAA) and the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA), are great opportunities for networking and collaborating with local contractors, but will also feature tech vendors in the ConTech Showcase. Leading technology companies will be sponsoring the ConTech Showcase, including STACK Construction Technologies, Plans4Less, NoteVault, Milwaukee Tool, COINS Global, Triax Technologies, eSub and more.

"We’re excited to sponsor the ConTech Roadshow in Philadelphia and to further our relationships within this community that’s dedicated to adopting innovative technologies and building techniques to drive the construction industry forward. The passion and experience JBKnowledge brings to AEC results in energizing, thought-provoking discussions about the current and future state of the industry, and we know this Roadshow will be no exception," added Chad Hollingsworth, President and Co-founder of Triax Technologies.
