      The world is entering its greatest period of change in nearly a century. America’s allies depend on her commitments for their economic and physical security, and they hope the Trump administration’s positions are an aberration. This hope is misplaced. The world has gotten so used to the “normal” of an American-dominated Order that we all have forgotten the historical norm: several smaller, competing powers and economic systems throughout Europe and Asia. The period of American hyper-involvement in global affairs is ending. The impacts on global energy and agricultural markets, finance and technology will be transformative, but the heirs to the dying... Read More

                    The session will focus on creating partnerships between apartment owners and hotel operators during lease up, a time of typical revenue loss. These partnerships can generate revenue that help offset rising land and escalating construction costs and help reduce operating expenses and concessions. These partnerships facilitate allowing a hotel operator to use vacant apartment units during lease-up as hotel guest rooms and in exchange provide apartment owners and developers guaranteed revenue and previously untapped cross-marketing opportunities. The session will also touch on advances in wireless technology used for hotel guest rooms that can provide additional advantages for the apartment project... Read More

When the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) became a law in 1990, it ensured legal rights across a variety of areas including transportation, education, and public accommodations in commercial building. While it may have addressed many major issues, one area where people with disabilities and their families continue to struggle daily is the ability to live comfortably in their home. Today, many homes are not adaptable to the lifestyle and needs of Veterans, special needs,... Read More

This panel of international construction executives will provide case histories on ground-breaking projects that address many issues currently plaguing U.S. residential builders – from lagging productivity and systemic underbuilding, to a worsening labor constraint, increasing costs, and the need for sustainable structures.
