Description

Join us for a conversation with LBM industry and non-industry stakeholders as we look at current and potential future impact of innovation and disruption.

As technology is applied to the LBM/Construction industry in new ways, innovation and potential disruption follow.  How we buy is changing in methods and materials.  Off-site construction is an innovation that continues to evolve and be applied in new ways.  3-D printing is developing and growing quickly.  How will developments in these areas unfold?  How will they impact traditional LBM retail and wholesale trade?  How will they impact manufacturing and construction?  And most importantly, where can we find opportunities to capitalize on the changes?
