Our conferences address the key financial and strategic concerns of the a/e/c industry. The annual EFCG CEO Conference, now in its 28th year, is a 3-day event that brings together the CEO’s of roughly 220 a/e/c firms, including 80 of the ENR top 100 e/c firms. It is by invitation only, held in NYC at the New York Yacht Club, Harvard Club and Millennium theatre. To participate requires completion of a detailed operational and financial survey of the participant’s firm, covering over 100 key performance metrics and qualitative questions. This information is collated and analyzed by EFCG and summarized in the opening Industry Overview Presentation, reflecting trends, benchmarks, and key issues for the industry. There follows roughly 10 panels on which 5 – 10 CEO speakers debate and discuss the materials and issues raised in the Overview. Similar annual EFCG conferences are held for CFO’s, CHROs / HR Directors, CIOs, Architecture Firms, and “Rising Leaders”.
