Navigating the 2023 North American Construction Market

Learn Over Lunch — Virtual

Wednesday, June 21, 2023

The start of 2023 saw unexpected challenges for the North American construction industry. Falling asset prices, failing banks, and uncomfortably high inflation have created yet again a series of unique business conditions with no historical equivalent to help industry leaders make strategic decisions. However, today’s business leaders are advantaged by a world that is increasingly data-driven and data-tracked.

In this Learn Over Lunch session, Michael Guckes, Senior Economist with ConstructConnect, will present a holistic, data-driven view of the contemporary North American construction market. His presentation will help attendees develop a targeted and cultivated list of data series they can use for seeking out future growth opportunities while also avoiding potential market pitfalls.

Learning objectives

Participants will learn about:

  • The present state of the North American construction industry
  • Market trends that are affecting construction operating costs and how to most effectively respond to them.
  • The role that regional geographics play in the ability of construction firms to find work
  • The indirect and direct influence that financial markets can have on construction firms
