2019 Accelerate AEC speaker lineup announced, May 13-14, NYC

Can machines design buildings? What can we learn from AEC "superusers"? How are leading contractors winning with offsite construction?

The answers to these questions—and so many more—will be explored at Building Design+Construction's third-annual Accelerate AEC Innovation Conference, May 13-14 at Dream Downtown in New York City.

Accelerate AEC will bring together 175-200 AEC firm leaders and industry technologists to share ideas around technology and business innovation, the changing built environment, and product and process innovation. 

Each speaker will get 15 minutes and up to 10 slides to present a radical idea, novel solution, breakthrough project, or emerging technology related to the future of the AEC industry and the changing built environment. 

New this year:
- Panel Q&A sessions focused on:
     • Offsite construction and design for manufacturing
     • AI and automation in AEC
     • Data-driven design and construction innovations 
- Peer-to-peer lunch discussions (by topic)
- Monday evening networking reception 
- Closing roundtable discussions focused on seven topics
