Topics we are seeking

Our goal is to inform and inspire by showcasing the technology-based innovations emerging, or soon to emerge in design and construction.
  • New Technologies or Technology-based Processes: We are looking for things that are truly new, have been significantly tested on real projects, and have the potential to change the future of the industry.
  • Innovative New Uses of Existing Technologies: We also are interested in seeing creative new uses of existing technologies to achieve unprecedented results that are repeatable by others and scalable to achieve great things.
  • New Ideas in Technology Development and Deployment: We are interested in fresh ways to cultivate and encourage technology adoption, as well as new insights into how technology can be better implemented and evaluated in the industry.

Our Audience

ENR FutureTech audience is primarily construction-tech, business and IT leaders in architecture, engineering and construction who are looking for the newest technologies that can enhance construction productivity, profits and safety. Owners, consultants, suppliers and others involved in the construction lifecycle also attend to keep up-to-date on the latest developments in construction technology.

Who Should Submit A Proposal

  • Architects, engineers, contractors, fabricators, trades workers, owners, and others in the industry who are ready to showcase their own tested and trialed innovations and inventions which are about to be released to the market or recently introduced.
  • Product-development and beta-test partners of software developers or inventors who are about bring new technologies to the market that have been robustly trialed and tested on real projects.
  • Anyone else who can show us the future of construction with demonstrations of truly innovative tools or technology.

Vendors: Please contact our sales reps to discuss sponsorship opportunities, but if you are about to introduce a new technology, we strongly encourage you to enlist your most enthusiastic, tech-savvy, early-adopting, construction industry product development partner to submit a proposal to present about their experiences testing and employing your invention.
