What is the Construction Executive Summit?
The Construction Executive Summit is a one day conference held in Vancouver Washington. At the Summit, over 200 local construction industry leaders come together to learn about key trends and concepts for running their business. The day includes 12 different presentations that cover broad topics including marketing, finance, human relations and technology. Keynote speakers provide additional insight and motivation to the event. The Summit also provides an opportunity to network with industry leaders, contractors, subcontractors, suppliers and other businesspeople that support and influence the future of the construction industry in Clark County.
In 2022 we are excited to open up this event to our community youth interested in a career in construction or the trades. We will have a special panel for the kids as well as an opportunity for them to meet attendees at the Reception. Please sponsor the entrance fees for these students when you purchase your tickets.
