WHY
ARCHITECTURE
IN THE AGE OF
MILLENNIALS?
Millennials are the world’s most powerful consumers. A report published by Deloitte India reveals that the millennials a.k.a Gen Y are the key earners in India, with a 47% share in the working-age population. By 2025, millennials will comprise 75% of the workforce.
They’re also the first generation of digital natives and their affinity for technology helps shape how they live. They are dedicated to wellness, devoting time and money to exercising and eating right. Their active lifestyle influences trends in everything from food and drink to home design. They are inspired by what they’ve seen on their desktops, phones and tablets.
These digital natives are also one of the most demanding consumers, being tech-savvy, entrepreneurial and environmentally aware individuals. No wonder, the architecture and building material industries worldwide are gearing up to cater to the demands of the millennials.
Architecture in the Age of Millennials is a specially curated programme for the thought leaders including architects, interior designers, engineers, urban designers, planners, construction consultants and real estate players to witness this transformation, discuss and debate the emerging trends in millennial preferences. Architecture industry leaders believe that the generation known for self-expression and social awareness are destined to change the future of architecture.
The event encompasses all aspects of architecture and building material for the Millennial generation through exhibition and conferences.
