Conference Now Case study

The Associated General Contractors of America

The Associated General Contractors of America had one goal – to provide a quality conference experience for FedCon attendees on a virtual platform.


Organization: ACG

The Associated General Contractors of America is the leading association for the construction industry. AGC represents more than 26,000 firms total, including 6,500+ general contractors, 9,000+ specialty-contracting firms, and 10,500+ service providers and suppliers.

The Challenge

The Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) faced a common problem for associations during the COVID-19 pandemic: the need to host conferences digitally.

The Federal Contractors Conference (FedCon 2020) was due to host 275-300 attendees over the course of five days. ACG was faced with a four-week turnaround time to transform the in-person conference to a virtual format while maintaining the same value for attendees as the in-person iteration.


Conference Now was the platform for AGC's virtual event.

“Attendees were impressed that it was pulled off as quickly as it was and as
seamlessly on their end.”

Jordan Howard

Director of the Federal Construction Division
