Two years after going virtual, Procore’s global construction conference Groundbreak is back in person. The three-day event will take place November 7-9 in The Big Easy - New Orleans, Louisiana.
Each year Groundbreak brings together a community of global construction professionals to share knowledge and expertise, network with peers in the industry, and be at the forefront of innovation in construction. Listed below are the details on how to apply to be a speaker, sponsor, and Groundbreaker Award contender.
The speaker application for Groundbreak 2022 is now open and will be active until April 15, 2022. We’re looking for passionate, experienced, and knowledgeable speakers who have something unique to share with one of the biggest audiences in construction technology.
Once the Call for Speakers application submission period closes, the Content Committee will review all speaker applications and notify applicants via email of the status of their application by May 31, 2022. Selected speakers will receive complimentary Groundbreak registration and travel accommodations, acknowledgement on the Groundbreak 2022 conference website, exposure to thousands of industry professionals, and access to speaker readiness training.
Last year’s sessions at Groundbreak spotlighted the companies, projects, and people behind our industry's boldest achievements. Speakers ranged from C-Suite executives to industry freshmen. In 2022, we are searching for industry groundbreakers who can speak to leading safety practices, workforce development, sustainability, industry advancement, and emerging technologies.
“I truly enjoyed being a part of Groundbreak last year as both a presenter and an attendee,” said Sandra Bissember, Sr. PM, Information Technology, Baker Electric. “The format, technology and support was fantastic and all of the folks I worked with at Procore were friendly, professional, and courteous.”
The Groundbreak sponsorship application is now open as well. Being a sponsor at Groundbreak 2022 positions your organization in front of thousands of attendees, increasing brand exposure, providing the opportunity to showcase products and services, and creating long-lasting connections. Similar to last year, there is a wide range of sponsorship opportunities beginning at the start-up/non-profit level rolling all the way up to platinum.
“2020 was our first year sponsoring Groundbreak and we were impressed with everything about this event,” said Ashley Pratt, Partner Marketing Manager, Prophix Software. “The sponsorship opportunities were outstanding, and the level of support we received from the event staff was amazing.”
The 2022 Groundbreaker Awards application also recently opened, Procore will be honoring excellence in construction across a number of categories. This year we have added one additional award, Excellence in Workforce Development, which celebrates the company that displays positive impacts in retaining and recruiting talent.
