As clouds gather for BIM 360 event,
teams shine through

| Jul 23, 2015

On July 30th, Applied Software’s Construction Technology Group, Autodesk, NewformaMasterGraphics, and Heitman Architects all invite you to BuiltWorlds for Cloud Coverage: A 360° View from the Field. Dynamic Autodesk construction industry strategist Stacy Scopano will provide an eye-opening keynote that will focus on evolving digital trends in design and construction and their direct and growing impact on the success of both projects and the teams that bring them to life.

Following Scopano's presentation, Applied Software founder Richard Burroughs, MasterGraphics GM Mike SchulistAndy J. Egan Co. technology chief Chris Weaver, and Karl Heitman of Heitman Architects will help to expand the discussion in engaging ways that keep our heads in the clouds, but with added clarity and value. On the BW stage, the expert group will demonstrate how BIM 360 can drive even greater efficiencies and savings than first imagined. Join us for an rich evening that delves deeper into the technology that promises to lift all of our work even higher.

NOTE: Doors will open at 6:00 PM, and presentations will start at 7:00 PM. 

In that first hour, attendees are encouraged to network, meet speakers and staff, and enjoy the food and beverages provided. Why the later start time? To accommodate anticipated visitors, including national committee leadership, from the annual AGC-IT Forum event downtown, which will have just concluded its first day of activities at 6:00 PM.
