2020 has been a very strange year indeed. People forced to work from home, children being taught over their computers instead of in the classroom, retail businesses and restaurants shuttered with many of them never reopening and modular factories shutting down for a while.
Adding to all that frustration was the absence of face to face meetings and conferences within the construction industry. Conferences, meetings and interviews took place on Zoom, LinkedIn and many other venues.
As fun as it is to attend a remote conference in the comfort of your home or office, there is nothing like an old fashioned face to face conference. It gives you a chance to meet old friends and make new ones. You hear from experts in construction and can actually interact with them on a one to one basis.
Two In-Person events you shouldn’t miss if you are in the modular or off-site construction industry are Modular Home Builder Association’s Annual Meeting in Harrisburg, PA on October 9th and the International Builders Show in Orlando, FL, February 9-11, 2021.
Between the exhibitors, experts giving talks and making new friends, these two face to face events should prove interesting, even if you have to put on pants, which is optional on most Zoom conferences.I will be at both events and if you would like to talk, simply email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll find the time to meet “In Person!”
