Prime Contractor’s Roundtable: the opportunity to meet face-to-face with our region’s most high-profile and active builders. This unique forum allows attendees to discuss with company representatives their current projects, target-markets and teaming opportunities, and learn what they look for in project partners.

The format will allow for 6 persons at a table with each contractor for 15 minutes of dialogue and Q&A followed by a brief break and rotation to the next PC table. The event will culminate in networking where attendees will be able to chat at will with peers, clients and contractors. Our refreshments are sponsored by the City of San Antonio.
