Construction is poised to see an explosion in government contracting. Thanks to the renewed focus around infrastructure investment, construction companies have the opportunity to accelerate their sales to the government – but only if they are up to date on recent contracting trends and best practices.

The best way to keep up to date on the latest in the construction industry is by attending trade shows, interacting and networking with other professionals. So we compiled a list of seven top trade shows and conferences happening within the next 12 months.
