Building Relationships

Building Industry Resources How We Help You Social Media & Marketing Services Blog What's News About Us Contact

Networking is key. You must establish new relationships and put yourself in the right places at the right times in order to position yourself for the economic upturn.

It's important to reach outside of your current contact list and explore new resources for networking. Architects, attend an Engineering convention. Construction professionals, try a Real Estate trade show. Listen to the trends and ideas presented at their events. Our building industry fields are certainly interrelated: Facility Managers need Contractors; Builders need Interior Designers.

Building Industry Resources has compiled a listing of upcoming conferences, trade shows and other events where you can meet owners and building industry professionals, network, and expand your reach throughout the industry.
