 A Preview on the European international contractor of the Year 2025 – Upcoming Trends and Challenges to be managed.

The Workshop will commence with key-note presentations on the future developments in the international construction market and on the productivity transformation that has taken place in the automotive industry in order to better understand the potential challenges arising for European contractors’ international business as we know it. Subsequently, knowledgeable experts from two professional service companies will set out in two impulse presentations probable scenarios with regard to the future value chain in international construction and the technology trends to be watched. Their observations shall be taken up by a high-level panel of senior executives from leading European international contractors and consulting companies, moderated by a renowned Austrian journalist and TV presenter.

 Vienna, Austria's grand capital on the Danube river, has topped the list of cities offering the highest quality of life for several years in a row, and is home to a number of epic architectural ensembles and fashions, from classical Baroque designs to more modern creations, such as the world-famous Hundertwasserhaus.

Austria's capital is worth visiting not only for its splendid architecture but also for its art collections, its parks and its many excellent restaurants and beautiful café houses. Enjoy your stay!

EIC and its Belgian Member Federation, La Confédération Construction, welcome you to the Autumn Conference 2016 in Brussles with a workshop on:


Smart Cities – Opportunities for European International Contractors


In the workshop a number of high-ranking speakers will analyse the elementary components of the “Smart City” concept, particularly in the fields of building and infrastructure, as well as the respective business opportunities for the EIC membership.


Please take note that contrary to previous conference the workshop will start early in the morning at 09:00 hours and end with a working lunch which will be followed by the EIC General Assembly in the afternoon.


Brussels has become a synonym for the European Commission but the city has more to offer than EU institutions. But it is also the capital of Art Nouveau and magnificent structures throughout Brussels are recognized as world heritage by UNESCO.


We look forward to welcoming you to the EIC General Assembly and Workshop and wish you a pleasant stay in Brussels.
