Contribute Ideas to AECCafe’s Trends/Predictions article

December 14th, 2015 by Susan Smith

Greetings, Readers!


The first week of January AECCafe Voice will publish a Trends/Predictions article, looking forward toward what might be the big trends for the new year, as well as the next five years.

What are we looking at? What can we predict will be game-changers in the coming year or years?

How will the current initiatives driving low carbon emissions shape the AEC community and the cities of the future?

How will drones morph and develop to change to meet our needs for increasingly accurate and quick data?

What products will serve to make data and products more accessible to many more people, inside and outside the AEC community?

What role will sensors play in the new order for AEC users and consumers?

What do you think of collaboration and the cloud?

These are just a few subjects to ponder, but you may have many more. Write to me to share your thoughts at

This is crowdsourcing at its finest: everybody’s opinion will be considered! Please have your comments to me by December 23rd, 2015.

Best regards and have a joyous holiday,

Susan Smith
