Marcum LLP will present its annual construction industry conference in California for the first time, on October 18 at the Irvine Marriott Hotel. The 2018 Marcum Construction Summit is being produced by the Firm’s national Construction Services group, one of the leading construction accounting practices in the U.S.

The summit will feature a keynote address by Anirban Basu, the construction industry’s leading economic expert and Marcum’s chief construction economist. Mr. Basu’s summit presentation will discuss global, national and regional economies, including the performance of financial, labor, and real estate markets. He is the author of the quarterly Marcum Construction Index and the annual Marcum JOLTS report on construction industry hiring trends.

The summit agenda will also include two expert panel discussions, followed by a networking cocktail reception. Alliance Solutions Group is the gold sponsor for the California event.

Joseph Natarelli, Marcum’s national construction leader said, “The annual Marcum Construction Summit has become a focal point for the industry since launching in 2013.

Contractors and service providers travel to this event every year for market insight and analysis, and of course for networking. We are looking forward to presenting the summit in California this year for the first time.”

The 2018 Marcum Construction Summit will also be held in New Haven, CT, on September 25 and Nashville, TN, on October 1. Additional cities are scheduled for 2019.
