BIM Show Live returns for 2017!

You may have seen the news recently that BIM Show Live will be returning in 2017. We’re happy to let you know that this will once again be in partnership with BIM.Technologies.

Back in 2010, the idea to host a conference for the emerging BIM community was discussed and before long BIM Show Live was born.  The event was designed for the early adopters – those who were passionate about bringing about change in the design and construction industry.  Originally launched in London, after a couple of years the event moved up to Manchester Central and now it’s on the move again!

The all-important dates for your diary have been confirmed as 1st and 2nd February 2017, with the venue being unveiled as the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Newcastle upon Tyne, with the catering and exhibition being situated in the brand new Boiler Shop – where Stephenson’s Rocket was designed and built.

Yes, in 2017 BIM Show Live is heading north!

Speaking recently about BIM Show Live, Rob Charlton had this to say;

“In 2016 we decided to take a year off to reflect. This year many copycat events seem to have appeared but these are commercial ventures rather than being focused on the content. For us, the commercial aspects only allowed the event to happen and were not the main driver. 

We all agreed we would only do it if we went back to what the event was all about six years ago – an event driven by content where those passionate about digital construction could share knowledge”

In 2017, Space Group is taking BIM Show Live ‘back to its roots’. 

The event, which is currently in the planning stages, looks set to be outstanding – smaller and less commercial than recent years and completely driven by the classes and content.  The call for papers will come in October 2016, so make sure you are ready!

For more information on BIM Show Live as it becomes available, make sure you follow the official BIM Show Live accounts on Twitter and Facebook.

Showcasing the benefits and real life application of BIM, BIM Show Live is the UK’s biggest conference for all things BIM. BIM Show Live is arranged by Space Group and is sponsored by BIM.Technologies, the UK’s leading BIM consultancy.
