AZBEX Events


AZBEX hosts a variety of industry-specific events throughout the year, the goal of which is to connect AEC firms and professionals with opportunities, whether bidding and project opportunities or networking opportunities.LinesummitAZBEX holds the Annual Development Summit each year in the Spring. *This half-day conference has a program that runs from 12:00pm – 4:30pm. Networking time is available prior to the event and at the happy hour portion following the program.

The Development Summit hosts economic development and planning experts from municipalities around the Valley, who present “shovel ready” development opportunities. This event focuses on projects you can pursue, not on industry trends. This is your chance to learn what projects are here and just over the horizon, as well as to meet important development facilitators and learn how to do business with them.

On October 5, 2016 AZBEX hosted it’s first annual Public Works Conference. This half-day, afternoon event features the movers and shakers in Arizona public works.

Though the topic may arise, this conference is not about trends – instead, we invite experts and leaders to present actionable opportunities to attendees.

Topics cover a range of issues from K-12, infrastructure investment, upcoming projects, as well as how-tos and best practices for finding and winning opportunities in the thriving public sector.

Have you ever tried to figure out exactly how much construction activity is going on in the state?  Would it help you to understand ‘how big the pie is’, and what sectors are expected to see the most growth?

Come hear from the market research experts – AZBEX research staff will present total activity, broken down by market sector in this lively presentation.

Bottom Up View

Most forecasting events tend to include a lot of macro-economic data – what the GDP is going to do, population growth, and the like.

AZBEX is taking a different approach, starting with project-specific data, direct from the AZBEX database, comparing with permit data, CIP information, and much more to provide an accurate view of each market sector.  These accurate market-sector views further roll-up into an activity forecast.



This free event is a place for subscribers and non-subscribers alike to learn the best way to utilize the AZBEX products. Meet the staff, get a preview of the new AZBEX database, and hear tips and tricks of the trade. Networking time is available before and after the presentation, and snacks and coffee is on us! These events are generally held every one to two months. The next AZBEX101 date will be announced shortly.

The next AZBEX101 is scheduled for November 10, 2017 at CCS Presentations. Click here to register.
