CONSTRUCT Issues Call for 2018 Sessions


National trade show CONSTRUCT is holding a call for sessions for its 2018 conference, slated for Oct. 3-5 at the Long Beach Convention Center in Long Beach, California.

“Our participants design, build, specify, engineer, renovate and operate in the built environment and are hungry for knowledge,” the organization said in its announcement.

“They are looking for quality content that engages them and provides them with real-world solutions that they can take home and implement immediately. Now is your chance to turn what you’ve learned into a unique presentation that will build your reputation and improve the construction community.”

The organization provides a list of relevant topics and an FAQ for those interested in proposing a session. A detailed list of instructions can be found here, and general guidelines can be found below.

CONSTRUCT is seeking sessions that feature:

  • Real-World Solutions: Solutions that can be immediately implemented;
  • Advanced and Expert Level Content: Although there is a need for introductory content for newcomers to the industry, organizers note that the majority of our participants have more than 15 years of experience and desire advanced or expert-level content;
  • Skilled Speakers/Presenters/Facilitators: Sessions should be presented by speakers with a firm grasp of technical issues, including building scientists, researchers, architects, specifiers, contractors, owners and code experts; and
  • Creative, unique and engaging experiences: A combination of learning formats, such as case studies, panel discussions with audience participation, small group discussions/peer-to-peer learning, hands-on learning, TED-style talk presentations, etc.

Proposals are due Jan. 23 and are being accepted through a SurveyMonkey form, which you can access by clicking here.
