rowth. New initiatives. Building teams. When it comes to what's on tap as another new year looms, commercial construction executives from across the industry are setting their agendas—and then some. In a time when many industry companies are honing their game plans for 2019, agendas and priorities were top of mind during the Commercial Construction & Renovation Retreat's roundtable discussion. Whether its preparing for infrastructure growth, building personnel depth or honing in on best practices, attendees openly discussed the trends and challenges for the road ahead. The roundtable discussion was part of the Retreat, held in September at the 21c Museum Hotel in Lexington, Kentucky. Attendees included some of the industry leading executives across the retail, restaurant and hospitality sectors. Sponsored by Commercial Construction & Renovation, the three-day event offered a series of business meetings and networking events, including a tour of the historical Keeneland Race Track and Mill Ridge Farm. Following is a wrap up of the Friday roundtable, where attendees discussed a number of industry-related topics. This is the first in a two-part series, which will conclude in the January/February issue of Commercial Construction & Renovation.
