Oct 04, 2011

NORCROSS, GA (Oct. 4, 2011)—On October 13, 2011 at 2p.m. (EDT), expert economists from Reed Construction Data (www.reedconstructiondata.com/), the Associated General Contractors (AGC) of America (www.agc.org/) and the American Institute of Architects (www.aia.org/) join forces to host “Flat, Down or Up:  Where is Construction Heading” – a webcast examining the current market conditions and detail of the construction outlook for 2012.

The webcast will follow the nation’s leading construction chief economists, Bernard Markstein, Ken Simonson and Kermit Baker as they discuss and analyze:

  • Will construction go into a tailspin, or can the industry pull up?
  • Which segments and regions are most vulnerable?
  • Which have the best prospects?
  • Will the economic slowdown arrest the run-up in materials costs, or are prices heading higher?

The webcast will be broadcast live starting at 2 p.m. (EDT) and will be archived for later viewing.  Registration is complimentary for all participants; pre-registration is required. The moderator will accept questions during the presentation from the internet audience.  Registrants may also receive 1.5 AIA CEU credits for attending this webcast.
