Total construction spending is expected to be 2% lower in 2010 than 2009.
While not good, it is an improvement from the nearly 7% decline of the prior year.
With economists talking about a double-dip recession, there are lingering doubts as
to whether this economic roller coaster ride is over. How long will it take the
construction industry to return to its peak of US$6 trillion spent in 2007?
Please join us on 29 September 2010, as we present our seventh annual view
of the world's construction markets.

Session 1

10:00 a.m. – 10:50 a.m. (E.T.), 3:00 p.m. – 3:50 p.m. (G.M.T.)

The recent financial market turmoil has raised the risks of another downturn.
The euro crisis and attempts by the Chinese government to deflate the
real estate bubble have only increased the anxiety about a global
double-dip outcome. How will this affect global construction markets?

Global Construction: How Will Activity Weather the Brewing Storm?

Session 2

11:00 a.m. – 11:50 a.m. (E.T.), 4:00 p.m. – 4:50 p.m. (G.M.T.)

The construction market continues to weigh negatively on U.S. economic performance.
Total construction spending contracted 4.8% in the first quarter of 2010 and is
not expected to see positive growth until the last quarter of the year.
Will it continue on from there? Hear our outlook for 2011 and beyond during
Session 2 of our Construction Web Event.

August's 60-mile traffic jam in Beijing underscores the state of the
infrastructure industry in developing markets. Countries like China
and India are struggling to keep up with the incredible pace of economic
growth and spending. The same cannot be said for developed markets.
Join us as we take a look at the best locations to invest in infrastructure
spending and weigh the associated risks.
