An exciting feature of ConTech is our Tech Hack, a half-day challenge where forward-thinking young professionals will shape a concept to drive site productivity and change, through technology.
Over the course of the day, mixed teams of professionals from across construction, will discuss the industry’s challenges, select an area to tackle and develop a technological solution to impact the industry’s productivity challenge. The ideas will then be pitched to judges at the end of the day, before a winner is chosen.
ConTech attendees are free to visit the teams during their discussions and attend the pitches, which begin during the afternoon break. Participation is limited to those applying and pre-selected by Construction News, as places are limited.
