The Austrian trade magazine for
the entire construction industry


[print-me target="body"/]
Achieve topic leadership with our SOLID communication channels!

Our leitmotif "We bring the industry together" has more meaning than ever, because SOLID is the only Austrian communication platform that deals comprehensively with all trades in the construction industry and does so on all channels: print, online, LinkedIn, podcast platforms such as Spotify and video channels such as Youtube and, of course, at our live events. That's what we call true 360° communication.

The construction industry and its environment are a key driver of the Austrian economy and are constantly on the move - digitalisation, taxonomy and lean construction are just three of the buzzwords. This means that the need for independent, well-founded information based on broad specialist knowledge is becoming ever greater. Almost 10,000 subscribers to the print edition, over 6,000 subscribers to our newsletter (with an opening rate of over 25 %), over 300,000 users of our website 2023 and the many participants in our face-to-face and virtual events as well as videos and podcasts rely on the well-told, critically researched and profoundly classified information that they obtain from the many platforms of SOLID - Wirtschaft und Technik am Bau.

We promise professional communication on all channels, because our digital offer with SEO-optimised online portal, newsletters, webinars and white papers are supplemented by powerful events, such as the "SOLID BIM Conference".

Put your communication goals in our hands, because we understand decision-makers.

5. podcast

The audio track is edited as a podcast and provided with a professional jingle and recorded intro and published on the magazine platform.
