For the first time, the ZIGURAT Summit will be held in two Brazilian cities: Belo Horizonte (January 30) and São Paulo (January 31).

The construction sector is a key driver of the Brazilian economy. In 2022, it represented 5.7% of the country’s GDP, generating over 10 million jobs. However, it is also one of the most labour and resource-intensive, making it vulnerable to economic and environmental changes.

Technology allows the construction sector to reinvent itself and reduce its impact on the environment. Building Information Modelling (BIM), Artificial Intelligence (AI), and virtual and augmented reality can help builders create safer, more efficient, and sustainable buildings.

With this idea in mind, the theme for the 2024 ZIGURAT Summit is “About People, Processes, and Technology” to explore how technology can enhance the human experience in construction.

This event will take place on January 30 and 31, 2024, in Belo Horizonte and São Paulo due to the tremendous success of last year’s edition in São Paulo, where tickets were sold out.

ZIGURAT Summit Belo Horizonte

On January 30, the Ministry of Culture, MM Gerdau, and ZIGURAT present the ZIGURAT Summit at MM Gerdau – Museu das Minas e do Metal. This museum, part of the Circuito Liberdade, stands out as a significant cultural centre in the region, combining art, history, culture, science, and technology. Throughout the day, participants can attend the following panels:

  • Urban Connections: Technology and Infrastructure in Metropolises
  • Cultural Heritage in the Digital Age
  • Colectivo Levante – Creative Process and Humanized Management

This is the first time a ZIGURAT Summit will be held in Belo Horizonte, so the organizing institutions have decided to celebrate by offering free tickets.

On January 31, the ZIGURAT Summit returns to its birthplace, São Paulo. This time, it is sponsored by AltoQi, a leading company in software solutions for construction. In this city, participants can enjoy four expert panels on:

  • Project, Construction, and Humanized Management
  • Digital Transformation in Public Administration
  • Practical applications of technological solutions for digital transformation in the construction industry with AltoQi.
  • BIM and Artificial Intelligence as Strategies for the Future.

The ticket price for the ZIGURAT Summit in São Paulo is 50 reais. Remember that tickets sold out last year, so in 2024, don’t miss out!
