The Annual Market Outlook on Federal Construction

Building Innovation 2013: FEDCon

Find out about the most authoritative, up-to-date information on federal agency building and infrastructure budgets, construction forecasts and regulatory updates. Now in its 20th year, the popular FEDCon® event gives private-sector architects, engineers, general and specialty contractors, and manufacturers insight into what they need to know to deliver services and products to the U.S. federal government—the world's largest facility owner and procurer of design and construction services.

Officials from a number of federal agencies, including the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, U.S. General Services Administration, NASA, U.S. Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC), U.S. Department of State, U.S. Department of Transportation and U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, have been invited to speak. Attendees will present their construction budgets for the current year and planned budgets for future years; discuss the types of buildings to be designed; offer regional and international construction information; and provide the overall direction of their design/construction programs.
