Committee for European Construction Equipment (CECE) hosts the Summit 2019, sponsored by LECTURA, which will take place on October 16 and 17 at the Autoworld museum in Brussels. The motto of the Summit is “From Bricks to Bytes”.
The European construction equipment industry employs over 300,000 people, covers more than 1,200 companies and generates revenues for € 40 billion (2018). This year’s CECE Summit brings into discussion contemporary topics such as how innovative technologies contribute to a sustainable construction industry or how can the political situation in the EU affect the construction business. The attendants of the Summit will have the opportunity to discuss current and future challenges with representatives of major OEMs from the construction industry.
As the motto suggests, the main topic of the event will be how to prepare for times of change and digital transformation. Our company is very proud to be the official sponsor of the CECE Summit 2019 as we strongly identify ourselves with this topic. We are literally a data-driven company: Since 1984, LECTURA has dealt with all types of machinery data and appropriate digital solutions. We gather, organize and present huge amounts of machinery data, that flow not only from Europe but also from other continents, and therefore we constantly face serious data challenges. We collect millions of data points each month and further distribute hundreds of thousands of data information. Nevertheless, the important thing is not just to gather, generate and own the data, but mainly to structure and cleanse them, because the data can be effectively used only after such processes. Our job is to make the data better.
In order to unlock the full potential of data, global digitalization of the construction sector is necessary. For a better understanding of the issue, we published a comprehensive report in cooperation with CECE, which describes and evaluates all significant parameters of digitalization of the construction industry in greater details.
The CECE Summit 2019 will be a perfect opportunity to meet and consult various experts from the industry through the plenary sessions, panel discussions and forums. You can find the detailed programme and registration form on the official event page. We look forward to seeing you there!
