Post-Election: Where Is Construction Headed?

The economy has been the focus of campaigns, elections and debates for many months. You’ve heard the opinions of various candidates and commentators; now hear what chief economists from Reed Construction Data, the Associated General Contractors of America, and the American Institute of Architects expect for the construction economy in 2013.

Join us for an all-new economic webcast:
Post-Election: Where Is Construction Headed?

The webcast features leading construction industry chief economists, Bernard Markstein, Ken Simonson and Kermit Baker in a look ahead at likely future activity within the various construction sectors.

Once the elections are over, will the construction industry continue its slow, steady recovery? The fiscal cliff looms, and plenty of questions remain about U.S. and global outlooks. Find out what the construction industry experts predict for 2013:

Will the election really affect the economy?
Will the recovery gain strength or stop in its tracks?
Where are materials costs heading?
Which areas and segments will grow, and which are vulnerable?
What are the threats and risks to the recovery?

The webcast begins at 3 p.m., EST, on Nov. 8, 2012. The speakers will accept questions from the online audience in the last half hour. The webcast is open to everyone, and registration is required.
