Great events have already begun!

We are still very early in 2018, but some great events and conferences have already taken place. The European ConTech Summit that took place in London on the 30th of January is probably the most representative example. GenieBelt and Construction News were the organisers of the event and we couldn’t be prouder for that!

Some of the biggest innovators in construction technology came together and discussed the current and future challenges for the building sector. Stay tuned, because some very interesting talks from the event will follow soon.

Get better at networking

It can be intimidating to start networking at events, and if you’re not used to it, you might need some tips in order to improve your networking skills. Networking is important since it could help you find people, who can help you solve the difficulities you’re struggling with, or improve your skills and knowledge base, which can be used in your work. A lot of events will also include experts/leaders of your industry that can tell you how they approach business, which could provide you with some great experince and benefits.
We have made a blog post where you can learn a little bit on how to be better at networking. Take a look, and get better prepared for your next event. Find it here: How to network
