The last few weeks have brought unprecedented changes to the AEC industry.  As firms continue to make changes to their travel plans as a measure to ensure the safety of their employees and clients, a number of important industry conferences and events have been cancelled, postponed, or changed format.

As a trusted source of news for so many in the AEC industry, we want to keep you updated as to what is going on in terms of these events and conferences.  Below you will find a list of AEC industry events that have made the decision to amend their original plans.  We will update the list as changed events are reported.

If you want to add your event to the list or have an update please contact Luke Carothers lcarothers@zweiggroup.com.
