Foundations Conference Research Shows Building Momentum for 2014 Construction Outlook
John Crosby / HW.com / October 9, 2013
Hanley Wood’s own customer event – Foundations 2013 – presented the most optimistic view on the residential and commercial design and construction markets since 2006. From economic data and market insights, to the outlook of builders, architects, remodelers, contractors, and dealers, the message coming out of the event at the Spertus Center in Chicago September 25-26 was “get ready for growth.”
Metrostudy Chief Economist Brad Hunter, Hanley Wood Chief Economist Jonathan Smoke, and housing guru (and Hanley Wood Vice Chairman) Frank Anton delivered the results of research and surveys we develop regularly to keep our customers and our audiences informed.
Attendees wrapped up the conference with a healthy dose of social marketing insight from expert Crystal Washington and sales enablement ideas from Mark King, CEO of TaylorMade – adidas Golf. Lots of ideas were taken away for planning to execute and succeed in 2014.
