DTS Speaker Spotlight: Jarod Schultz

The Design Technology Summit (DTS) brings together professionals from the AEC industry that have an impact on implementing technology within their firms. DTS has been utilizing small forum discussions since its conception and we are excited to incorporate round tables with BiLT NA 2019 Thursday’s sessions. This format will allow attendees to be involved with the discussion in greater depth and provide a wider swath of topics to be communicated by each attendee.
