AEC opportunities from stimulus spending

Government and architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) experts will convene May 13-14, 2009, in Orlando, Fla., at Deltek’s Insight 2009 conference for The Stimulus & Beyond: Navigating the Brave New World. The event was created to give government contractors and AEC firms answers on what is happening with the stimulus plan to prepare them to win business in this new era of government spending.

With passage of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and the federal government’s stated intention to spend billions of dollars annually on infrastructure projects, those firms with practical knowledge of how to win government business and how to work effectively as a government contractor will be best positioned to take advantage of the government spending. Deltek has leveraged its 26 years of experience supplying specialized enterprise software to government contractors, AEC firms, and the government to convene an event solely focused on helping companies navigate their way to new contracts. Attendees will hear keynote addresses from industry luminaries such as former Congressman and government procurement expert Tom Davis, who will explain acquisition policy in this new era, and McGraw-Hill Construction President Norbert Young, who will discuss where the government spending will occur and how AEC firms need to adapt to win business. Attendees will also hear from 25 additional industry experts throughout the two-day event.

The Stimulus & Beyond will include keynote addresses, breakout sessions, expert panels, and networking receptions where attendees will receive information to procure and win new business. The event will also give attendees multiple opportunities to network with other companies to explore teaming opportunities and partnering strategies for winning contracts with federal, state, and local governments.

"Many firms—especially those in the AEC industry—have been affected by the economic downturn," said Bill Clark, CMO and executive vice president at Deltek. "Given that Deltek has long served AEC firms, government contractors, and the federal government, we felt compelled to leverage our experience to pull together a group of experts that can cut through the confusion around the stimulus plan and provide our customers with a clearer path to the billions of dollars in government spending. The actionable information attendees will receive at our event will enable them to pursue and win new contracts upon their return from Orlando."
