DBL 2017 Annual Symposium

The Digital Business Lab's seventh annual symposium will showcase two days of panels with leading international experts, presentations, and an exhibit of AEC research being conducted across the Georgia Tech community. The theme for this year’s symposium is “AEC Entrepreneurship: Creating the High Tech Building Economy.”

As buildings and cities fuse with ubiquitous computing systems and become part of the emerging Internet of Things, new players from both inside and outside traditional architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) sectors are beginning to capitalize on the opportunities in this changing landscape of professional practice and technological innovation.

What are the models of practice in this high tech future for architects, engineers and builders? We aim to answer this and other questions about the future of architecture.

Our line-up of panelists includes practice and business leaders from large full-service consultancies to startups, high tech companies, and venture capitalists.

The symposium will take place at the Historic Academy of Medicine at Georgia Tech, located in the heart of Midtown Atlanta.

The schedule:
Thursday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. with a banquet at 6 p.m.

Friday, 9 a.m.-6 p.m.
