"Innovation Disruption and Getting Ready For the 'Tsunami' That is About To Hit Our Industry" | Sponsored by Smart City Works Venture Labs
Join Tim McManus, Chairman, Advisory Board at Smart City Works Venture Labs, as he moderates this panel discussion.

Over the past 5-7 years we have seen nearly $35 billion invested in new digital and tech startups focusing on infrastructure, clean energy/renewables and smart city solutions. In addition to this major trend of Innovation and Digitalization, America’s infrastructure industry will become “white hot” again similar to the 2018-2019 period and we will see rapid and wide-ranging advancements in the adoption and application of technology and digital solutions and the opportunities being seized by “first movers”. We also forecast significant challenges that can impact this development in the private sector supply chain but mostly in the public agencies that will lead this industry surge. Factors such as the loss of senior, experienced leadership over the last year, plans to adopt new project delivery methods, struggles to adopt a comprehensives digital transformation, significant gaps in funding for major capital projects and programs, etc. will have wide-ranging impacts affecting the successful delivery of our new infrastructure.

This panel will examine how these challenges will affect both the private and public sector members of our industry and, more importantly, describe examples of how innovative public agencies and private companies are already taking actions to address these challenges so they will be ready for the wave of investment and project deal flow that will hit our industry in the very near future.
