AVAIL to Host Signature Confluence Lexington Event September 12-14, 2024

Confluence Lexington 2024

LEXINGTON, Kentucky, May 7, 2024 - Software company AVAIL – which creates content management system (CMS) solutions for the global architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry – will host its signature professional development event Confluence Lexington 2024 in Lexington, Kentucky September 12, 13, and 14, 2024. 

Confluence is a series of professional development events that bring design technology and product management leaders from across the AEC industry together in collaborative discourse. 

The three-day Confluence Lexington event is invite-only, and its 50-person guest list includes the most influential leaders in the AEC industry. Past Confluence Lexington attendees have represented top firms like Perkins&Will, AECOM, LPA Design Studios, HDR, Cooper Carry, EUA, and Parsons and technology providers such as The Wild, Chaos, Epic Games, Egnyte, Amazon, and NVIDIA. All Confluence Lexington programming and events are included, free-of-charge, for practitioner guests. 

For Confluence Lexington 2024, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) thought leaders will continue the conversation that began at Confluence Lexington 2023, exploring the technologies’ possibilities in the AEC industry and beyond.
In April, AVAIL hosted a single-day event in Brooklyn, Confluence New York 2024, likewise focusing on the theme The Realities of AI and ML.

“It's both inspiring and somewhat alarming to see the pace at which technology advances, while our industry struggles to keep up,” said Confluence New York 2024 guest Ben Ferrer, National Director of Virtual Design and Construction at Turner Construction. “Events like this are crucial as they provide a platform for sharing successes, strategies, and ideas openly, helping others to also advance and succeed. Great to be part of such a dynamic exchange!”

For both one-day and three-day events, Confluence’s programming structure is deliberately designed to foster conversations between guests, so they can learn, share, and engage with each other to support industry innovation. 

Confluence host and AVAIL CEO and Founder Randall Stevens calls the activities in between sessions “white space” and purposefully schedules white space opportunities into Confluence programming for guests to engage in conversations around the program topics with their industry colleagues.

“I claim the time on the bus between the social events is probably the most important part of Confluence,” Stevens said. “The planned programming sets a backdrop for the real magic which are those deeper conversations with peers. I know it’s working when the bus is filled with chatter!”

White space opportunities for Confluence Lexington 2024 will include tours of bourbon distilleries Woodford Reserve and Castle & Key, as well as a tour of the new College of Design facilities at the University of Kentucky. 

Event specifics are still being confirmed, but legendary Thoroughbred horse auction site Fasig-Tipton will be the backdrop for Confluence sessions and discussions Thursday, September 12, 2024. Kentucky fare made by the equally legendary chef Ouita Michel will serve as fuel for guests throughout the day.  

Unique to Confluence Lexington, guests’ plus-ones are not only invited but encouraged to join the events in Lexington and engage in a special plus-one itinerary.
