Given the current situation, right now is a perfect time to think about … what’s next?

How do you calculate the value of your firm?

Which valuation method is the most accurate?

Multiple of book value? Comparable firm sales? Percentage of net revenues?

What effect has Covid19 and the Payroll Protection Plan have on your valuation?

What are your options for transitioning your firm?

How can you maximize the return on your investment?

What are the most common transition mistakes firm owners make?

On this online, 3-hour seminar, you’ll discover the answers to these questions and more, including:

  • How to finance the owner buyout

  • Sample valuation exercise
  • Presenting the offer to employees
  • Steps for an economic downturn

And more…

SPECIAL BONUS – each attendee will receive a 30 minute private consultation

A Story for the Future – MAXXI’s First Decade

17 Feb – 29 Aug 2021

Curated by Hou Hanru

Exhibition design by Inside Outside

Historical times call for critical, contemporary exhibitions. On the occasion of the decade-long anniversary of Rome’s first museum of the contemporary arts, memory will abide by the unbound. We are thrilled to announce the launch of the new exhibition titled “A Story for the Future: The First Decade of Maxxi”, for which Inside Outside has delivered the exhibition design.

MAXXI Museum is re-visiting its archive, but it’s the visitors who will be making the content count in its encore. The museum is growing to be an inescapable access point into the feeding and friction that takes place between creative communities and the fabric of modern life.

Lucca Biennale X Edition postponed to 2021

Aug 1 – Sep 26, 2021


As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic developments, the organizing committee of Lucca Biennale Cartasia has decided to postpone the tenth edition of the event from August 1st to September 26th, 2021.

Lucca Biennale X Edition 2021

We are working and will continue to work to maintain the safety of all those who work at or participate in the event, as artists and audience, and to maintain the integrity of the Biennale and its many sections.

That is why the Biennale does not stop. Great ideas are planned for the next edition: events, exhibitions, seminars, conferences involving countries such as Japan, as well as artists and speakers from all over the world. We are working on an edition rich in culture, art, events to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the event.

Postponing the event is above all a form of respect towards the city of Lucca, the participating artists and the public involved: we are going to be able to gather again in summer 2021, to live together the beauty of art.

After the tenth edition, in 2021, the eleventh edition will take place, as planned, in 2022 bringing the Lucca Biennale back to even years.

Thanks to every single person who continues to support us, we are at your disposal for any request.

To all, a deep wish for creativity, art and culture.

Modular Prefab & Construction Tech Senate Amsterdam, The Netherlands

November 2021

A digital disruption wave is hitting all industry sectors including construction and it is undoubtable that modular constructions can go hand-in-hand with technological development. The basis of volumetric modular systems, or prefabricated construction, is the initial digital 3D design and the ability to utilise Building Information Modelling (BIM) to ensure the building is suitable for the planned location and design requirements. It is also behind the stackable modules used in several storey homes or larger industrial buildings, including hotels and office blocks.

McKinsey & Company calculated that, the market value for modular in new real-estate construction alone could reach $130 billion in Europe and the United States by 2030, delivering annual cost savings of $22 billion. In many countries, modular construction is still very much an outlier but there are strong signs of what could be a genuine broad-scale disruption in the making. It is already drawing in new competitors—and it will most likely create new winners and losers across the entire real estate and construction ecosystem.

Many factors determine whether a given market is likely to embrace modular construction, but the two biggest determinants are real-estate demand and the availability of skilled construction labor. In places such as Germany’s major cities and the southern part of the United Kingdom, labor shortages and large-scale unmet demand for housing intersect, making this model particularly relevant.

Join us at The Modular & Prefabrication Construction to earn insightful knowledge and fruitful discussion on understanding emerging construction technologies, including robotics, 3D imaging and even the use of RFID-BIM which are becoming increasingly leveraged to aid the design and development of modular construction. Those technological capabilities are enhanced, sped up and become more cost-effective and sustainable, when utilised in a controlled by factory setting.

• Learn how to enhance the prefab buildings design with an architectural approach • Develop the right digital manufacturing line for precast modules • Increase the efficiencies of modular construction with integrated supply chain system • Understand the tendering and contracting system in modular construction • Take advantage of the deployment of IoT, PPVC, DfMA, RFID-BIM, VDC, IDD, and prefab data center for off-site construction • Exploring the applications of wood concrete composite panels, mass engineered timber, and steel concrete composite systems

Please find attached PDF brochure for more content details and our contact information should you have any further inquiries.

Only limited seats are allocated for this Summit. Group registration package available with terms and conditions applied.
