As risk editor in a contentious industry, I sometimes fail to appreciate all the good work going on in construction. The brains. The innovation. The work ethic. The team dynamics.

Want to feel good about construction? This is your chance.

At ENR’s Award of Excellence luncheon and dinner recognition events, the industry comes together once a year to acknowledge a diverse group of people who represent the best in global construction.

Please mark your calendar now and join us  on March 21-22 in New York City!

There’s no other industry gathering that connects contractors, engineers, architects, owner executives, public works managers, labor leaders and others to connect under one roof.

We consider this three-part, two-day event—the Top 25 newsmakers lunch and the black-tie dinner to celebrate the Award of Excellence winner on March 21, and best projects award breakfast on March 22—a way to showcase key industry accomplishments for the broad construction marketplace. You can come to one or all of the programs.

Bring your colleagues and clients. Bring your family. Share what you're doing with industry peers and the editors of ENR.

Take a look at the fascinating list of Top 25 Newsmakers here.

One of them will be ENR's next Award of Excellence winner.

Also, preview the top projects of the year here.

Over the years, we’ve heard stirring words at these events from winning skyscraper designers, contracting executives, architects, urban planners, bridge engineers, developers, philanthropists, craftworkers, educators, trainers, equipment makers and union leaders.

Yes, there's food and lot's of laughing. But I just need the juice.

Be part of the excitement and cheer for construction.
