After taking a year out in 2016, the original BIM Show Live is back for February 2017. This sell-out show promises nothing less than to deliver a BIM-bang, reaching far beyond our expectations in the world of digital construction.
Having previously been held in both London and Manchester, all those involved felt it was time to bring the show home to its North Eastern roots, where the ideas for the show first began. Newcastle city centre will play host to BIM Show Live on Wednesday 1 and Thursday 2 February 2017.
The show was first launched back in 2011 and over the past five years has grown into one of the most trusted information-sharing platforms for BIM. This years’ show is taking things back-to-basics and re-visiting the initial objective of the show – an event focused on technology and event founder Rob Charlton, CEO of Space Group is thrilled that all tickets have sold out for their first show in the North East: “We are overjoyed and proud that the show has sold out. It demonstrates the continued interest in a digital construction industry.”
“In the past few years we have moved forward considerably in the race to catch up with other industries and over the next five years we will get even closer. Since 2011 BIM Show Live has helped to get the ball rolling to achieve Level 2 BIM, and although we know there is a long way to go to reach maturity of Level 2, BIM Show Live is at the leading edge and we are happy to leave the trailing edge to others.”
The show plans to provide visitors with all they need to know about how to build better with BIM, how to make it work for them by sharing projects and processes that truly make digital construction work – real-life success stories on who’s winning with BIM!
BIM Show Live 2017 will be held at the Boiler Shop, situated in Newcastle’s newly developed Stephenson’s Quarter.
The Boiler Shop is where Robert Stephenson designed and built the Rocket. This steam engine played an important part in the first industrial revolution. It is therefore fitting that BIM Show Live is in the same building where it is starting its journey to Industry 4.0.
Rob continued to say: “The support of our sponsors, exhibitors and speakers has been fantastic and we would like to thank them for their input. Without it there wouldn’t be a BIM Show Live.
“We are already planning for next year, we see this as a long-term commitment and our aim is to help drive a digital revolution to ensure the construction industry achieves another fantastic five years.”
