International symposium and networking event for leaders in the construction and HVAC industries.

11. – 13. September 2018 | Attendorn, Germany

BIGGEXCHANGE 2018

For building owners, architects, designers/engineers, entrepreneurs and distributors.

Digitization, climate change, sustainability, demographic change, urbanization, and updating aging infrastructure are all mega trends that will profoundly change our world.

In 2008, for the first time in history, more than half of the world’s population lived in urban centers. The United Nations forecasts that this ratio will increase up to 67 percent by 2050. At the same time, the construction industry has endured a decades-long productivity problem. According to a report from the worldwide management consulting firm, McKinsey, global labor-productivity growth in construction has averaged only a quarter of the growth of the manufacturing industry since 1995. Today a shortage of skilled labor and the digitization of the construction industry (building information modelling, or BIM, for example) are presenting considerable challenges to the industry.

How can we rise to meet these challenges?

The BIGGEXCHANGE brings key players in the construction and HVAC industries together to discuss this question and to delve into trend-setting developments, as well as practical and relevant solutions.

It provides a platform for interactive dialog, roundtable discussions and offers numerous networking opportunities.
