5 Tips for Running an Awesome Conference

By James Vandezande of HOK | Posted in Articles, BIMForum News


I was honored once again to volunteer my time as the event chair for the BIMForum. The group’s most recent event was held on April 29-30 in sunny San Diego.

Theme: Transforming Deliverables

The “deliverable” is a mechanism used to relay instructions and information from one party to another in a useful format. A common opinion is that the “I” in BIM is of utmost importance, but it is also the most overlooked. How can our industry better harness the information we are creating with BIM tools? What forms should these new deliverables take? Do traditional formats still work? Are there ‘new and improved’ deliverables on the horizon? [+]
