TORONTO – The Ontario General Contractors Association (OGCA) successfully educated and connected general contractors in new ways with their first-ever virtual symposium.
The theme of this year’s symposium was Educate Me! The event focused on virtual networking and featured six informative sessions to share best practices and prepare general contractors for 2021.
Noteworthy sessions included a discussion with industry leaders about the digital transformation of the construction industry, a panel on how general contractors can better understand artificial intelligence in the construction industry, a CCDC check-in on what’s new and what’s coming, as well as panels on working with consultants, contractor insurance, and what contractors can expect from the construction market in these times of uncertainty.
“This year, the OGCA symposium looked a bit different, but it had the same feel. The combination of general contractors, suppliers and service businesses made our symposium a must-attend event during a challenging year,” said Giovanni Cautillo, President of the OGCA. “I think we successfully condensed our three-day packed symposium into a virtual event where you can engage with colleagues and learn about interesting material that impacts general contractors. I was so proud to host Educate Me!”
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the OGCA has remained focused on supporting members’ commitment to safety. This event targeted everything around the construction industry and aimed to give general contractors the tools they will need to build now and in the future.
