BIM Show Live 2018; exploring the digital trends of tomorrow
BIM Show Live is best known as the Construction Industry conference which packs a punch. Far from the norm, it’s disruptive thinking elevates this technology-led event to one of the most trusted platforms for learning, knowledge sharing and industry insight for all things digital construction.
In 2017, we saw BIM Show Live delivered in Newcastle upon Tyne, an area rich in engineering and manufacturing, with a growing economy and not to mention home of BIM Show Live founders; Space Group.
For 2018, BIM Show Live will once again be staged in Newcastle’s the Boiler Shop, Stephenson’s Quarter – on Wednesday 28 February and Thursday 1 March.
This two-day conference will wow with its future-thinking and focus on emerging technologies to benefit the construction industry.
BIM Show Live is a driving force for the implementation of BIM processes and Space Group CEO Rob Charlton commented: “We’ve been running the show now for six years, and each year we never fail to present the new and the wonderful. Our industry is progressing at an accelerated rate and we believe at BIM Show Live we have an obligation to bring our visitors the very best our industry has to offer for technology and digital construction, plus what has changed year-on-year and what this means for future projects.
Once again the programme will be split across four content streams: Next Generation, Data, Strategy and Stories. Rob is one of the founders of BIM Show Live and explains here what they are looking for from speakers:
This stream is for the adventurous amongst us, the risk-takers who look for new challenges and embrace change like it’s their best friend. We showcase the new, the daring and of course the extreme at BIM Show Live, so for this stream we want to be wowed!
A great strategy allows you to get behind the thinking, what makes a project tick and what drives success. No holds barred, this is the catalyst of BIM; the why’s, the how’s and most importantly what did you learn?
We want to showcase the next generation of data driven technologies from the world of digital construction, providing our visitors with an opportunity to explore and discover the practical and successful implementation of BIM which is driving business forward.
One thing we have learnt over the past seven years is that stories make the most popular sessions. How all of this is put into action in the real world; where it all went right, and where it all went wrong; what did we learn, and what would we do next time. Tell your story, your way!
Continuing on from the last show, when it promised to provide visitors with all they needed to know about how to build better with BIM, how to make it work for them and capitalise on its opportunities, in 2018 the show will explore the developments of the past 12 months as well as looking forward to emerging trends which will drive and secure the continual digitisation of the construction industry for a truly Digital Built Britain.
Rob went on to share some of the plans for the 2018 show; “At BIM Show Live we share the best ideas, the latest innovations and show you things you’ve never seen before. But most importantly, we want to reveal some of the most magnificent achievements gained through the implementation of BIM in the built environment. After all, sharing what we have done, and how we did it, is the best gift can give back to our industry.
“We’re looking for the brightest minds and the best ideas, those who share our appetite for all things digital, and believe in the power of technology.”
