Drilling sits in an important corner of the overall building and construction industry, and a new event on the horizon plans to take a broad approach to serving everyone from engineers to plumbing and HVAC professionals.

The AEC BuildTech Conference & Expo will be held April 30-May 2 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois. The event is being put on by BNP Media in collaboration with more than 20 of the company’s construction and building related publications, including big names like Engineering News-Record (ENR). AEC BuildTech will be a valuable part of the calendar for engineers and other professionals who spec jobs in drilling, particularly geothermal and geotechnical, and want to understand their role in successful construction projects large and small.

“The editors of our publications have secured an incredible faculty of subject matter experts covering important topics for our attendees to gain the knowledge to leverage tomorrow’s building processes and construction technologies,” says Scott Wolters, BNP Media’s chief events officer.

BNP Media is the parent company of National Driller and dozens of other top-name industry publications. It serves professionals in a range of industries through magazines, custom media, eNewsletters, websites, conferences and market research.

“Engineers in any discipline will find actionable tips to help make their projects more successful,” says Sarah Harding, publisher of National Driller. “That includes professionals in geothermal and geotechnical, as well as nearly any aspect of the successful design and construction of today’s modern, high-tech buildings.”

The event features presentations on everything from HVAC to flooring to roofing, many with a CEU component. In addition, hundreds of companies have already signed up to attend — and share the latest innovations in products and services.
