We cannot sit back. Constant risks, challenges, problems surround the economic life which are felt and suffered by the construction industry (especially in Hungary). We are living in especially hard and unpredictable times where mid- and long-term business planning can be regarded as blind flying or predicting the future rather than conscious risk analysis and strategy. What can we do in these circumstances? How can we get ready, escape forward? What can players of the whole vertical and value chain of the construction industry expect? How can companies from the smallest to the biggest actors of the industry be ready, crisis-resistant, sustainable, and most importantly, have the potential to develop? We will look for the answers to these questions all day long.

The issue of material prices and supply chains has been one of the most important and most pressing risks in the construction industry for several years. Inflation, incomes, shortages, delays, quality problems, demand are all serious challenges. The situation requires constant re-evaluations in light of the newest events while putting huge pressure on the budget and deadlines for the work undertaken. How is the market today? With what can we calculate? What do suppliers, sub-contractors, or even customers expect?
