From the 19th to the 21st of October, the Colombian Construction Congress is coming back after two years of virtuality.
For the first time, it will be held in Barranquilla, a city that is a reference in terms of innovation and urban development: “a city to invest, visit and live”.
This Congress will bring together national governments, regions, opinion leaders, actors in the construction value chain, academia, around the slogan “Construction 2050: Well-being, Housing and Sustainability”.
The discussion will navigate from housing deficit, poverty, building quality cities, boosting productivity to workers’ welfare. International experts such as Albert Saiz, director of MIT's Urban Economics Laboratory; Adam Matthews, President of the International Global BIM Network; Joan Clos, former Executive Director of UN Habitat; Andrés Velasco, Dean of the School of Public Policy at the London School of Economics; and Ricky Burdett, British architect, and urban planner, will share insights on these topics.
