Maxwell Systems Is Proud to Sponsor an Economic Webcast: A Construction Recovery At Last -- But How Long And How Strong?

Contractors Should Register Now for the May 3 Free Webcast

KING OF PRUSSIA, PA--(Marketwire - Apr 23, 2012) - Maxwell Systems, Inc., a leading provider of complete construction business management software solutions, today announced its sponsorship of an economic webcast presented by chief economists from Reed Construction Data, the Associated General Contractors of America, and the American Institute of Architects.

The webcast, "A Construction Recovery At Last -- But How Long And How Strong?" will broadcast live on May 3, 2012 from 2:00-3:30 p.m. EDT. The presenters will address the topic of the construction industry's signs of sustained growth in multiple regions and market segments, and comment on how the recovery remains fragmentary and tentative.

The team of experts includes Kermit Baker of the AIA, Bernard Markstein of Reed Construction Data, and Ken Simonson of the AGC, in an analysis of likely future activity within the various construction sectors and answering these questions:

  • Will the current recovery gain strength or will it simply stall?
  • Can the strength extend to additional geographic areas?
  • Which segments and regions are still vulnerable?
  • What global or domestic economic developments could derail the recovery?
  • What will happen with materials costs?

The complimentary webcast, sponsored by Maxwell Systems, is open to the public. Registration is required prior to the event. Registrants who are AIA members and who attend the live broadcast are eligible to receive 1.5 AIA CEU credits. Speakers will accept questions from the online audience during the presentation. The webcast will be archived for later viewing.
