The success of Construction Forum STL is based on its accessibility and inclusion. We call it “Knocking down the walls to make a room big enough for everyone.” We do not purport to be the “voice” for anyone in the industry. Rather, we are a “room” where all those voices can be heard.

All of our events and communication — Quarterly speakers/networking; newsletters; website, etc. — are free and open to anyone and everyone who has an interest in improving construction and development in the St. Louis region.

Because we are a 501(c)4 civic organization with no “membership” requirement to access our offerings, sponsorship of Construction Forum STL are tax deductible as a business expense. We appreciate the contribution that our sponsors make and take very seriously our obligation to deliver a high level of industry engagement and marketing value. Our metrics are constantly and instantly available. Sponsorship is fully deductible as a regular business marketing expense.

I would encourage anyone thinking in terms of reaching the best minds in the construction industry to attend Construction Forum events.  Whether you seek thought leaders in the areas of diversity and inclusion, design build projects, or three-dimensional modeling, a visit with Forum members is an investment in your company’s future.

The Forum has been a great resource for all involved in our industry.

Simply bringing people in our industry together and offering professional discussion and allowing us the time to be in the same room with peers, owners, prospective clients and friends is accomplishment enough.   Your locations are always of interest and your speakers are a great mixture of industry related topics and themes of the day.

I stand in awe of the number of people you drag out of bed with every meeting—keep up the good work.  I have never left a Forum meeting disappointed.
