Co-founder Jon Antevy and General Manager Greg Blackman welcome you to Elevate 2021 to celebrate the innovative progress of owners all across North America. As Jon Antevy reflects on 25 years of partnering with owners to implement technology, the past 18 months clearly demonstrated that owners who already had a cloud strategy were light years ahead of others and were able to keep their programs running – even as the world changed around them. In this session, Jon and Greg will celebrate the success and innovation of our clients and award 2 organizations that stood out from their peers to earn the coveted Innovator in Construction Award. 2021 was the most competitive year with many incredible submissions for the award. This session you will not want to miss!
