Tech Experience

The award-winning Tech Experience is back and now in two locations (Silver Lot 3 and Festival Grounds). Learn what’s changing the face of the construction industry in these 3 key areas.

AEM Modern Mobility
  • What it is: The transformation of current systems for moving products and people to meet tomorrow’s demands.

  • What it involves: Transportation that is personal, shared, intelligent, and/or autonomous.

  • Why it matters: Existing infrastructure cannot sustain the sheer number of vehicles expected with growth in the future. Construction professionals will play an integral role in rebuilding and rethinking transportation.
AEM Sustainability
  • What it is: Designing buildings, vehicles, and cities with social, economic, and environmental impact in mind.

  • What it involves: Renewable energy, sustainable or recycled construction materials, and a resilient framework that withstands disturbance.

  • Why it matters: Housing, workspace, infrastructure, and utilities all have serious social and environmental consequences. Companies embracing sustainability will earn more contracts.
AEM SmartCities
  • What it is: Urban areas that incorporate electronic data collection sensors to efficiently manage assets and resources.

  • What it involves: Collecting and processing data to manage power, transportation, water supply, waste management, law enforcement, schools, hospitals, and other services.

  • Why it matters: Contractors need to be aware of new technology advances in this area because it will affect how work is done at construction sites in the future.
