Why Attend?

What’s New + What’s Next

Technology innovation, implementation + integration for the built world.

AEC Next Technology Expo + Conference is all about a vendor-neutral expo floor and a diverse conference program featuring solutions that seek to improve the built world.


You’ll have the opportunity to learn from today’s top industry influencers covering the hottest topics in today’s built environment. We’ve got you (and your whole team) covered with 3 information-packed days of education.


There is a lot happening in the AEC industry right now. Co-located with SPAR 3D, our expo floor will be a “one-stop-shop” for the latest and greatest technologies in AEC, today. You won’t want to miss it!


It can be easy to get wrapped up in day-to-day business and (dare we say) feel uninspired. Revive your enthusiasm by connecting with peers and thought leaders who are at the forefront of this industry evolution.


Experience all AEC Next has to offer. Get to know and vote on new companies and/or products featured in the AEC Next Launch Center. Join us for the Tuesday Happy Hour and enjoy live music, drinks, and arcade games at the Wednesday Happy Hour

Hear it from a professional...

The construction industry is fundamentally changing. What made us successful in the past is honestly starting to become irrelevant. We need to start looking at other industries to see how they have been disrupted. We need to understand what technology is hitting AEC now like VDC, VR, drones, laser scanning. But we also need to see what technology is on the horizon like machine learning and computer vision. In order to compete and succeed in the industry today and in the future, making innovation part of our DNA is a must, and opportunities to learn at events like AEC Next become invaluable.
