Geospatial Media, Geonovum and Rijkwaterstaat’s GeoBIM Europe 2014 conference has added another sponsor in the form of Topcon.

The Silver Sponsor news follows the announcement that Autodesk have been appointed a Co-Sponsor role and Trimble’s presence as a Gold Sponsor. In addition, BIMcrunch are an official Media Partner for the event, which is to be held at the Novotel Amsterdam City, Amsterdam, The Netherlands on November 19th through November 20th.

24 speakers from across the world have already been announced for the event including Herman Winkels, Program Manager of Building Information Models at Rijkswaterstaat representing The Netherlands, Atkins‘ Director of BIM Strategy and Development, Anne Kemp taking to the rostrum for the United Kingdom and Christophe Castaing of Egis will discuss French BIM adoption.

Discussing Topcon’s involvement, the Director of Geomatics at Topcon Europe Positioning Ian Stilgoe said: “It is clear that the adoption of BIM in Europe is spreading and it is vital that the Geo community are also engaged to bring their unique skills to assist implementation of BIM on projects.

“GeoBIM Europe is a new conference and exhibition which aims to widen the awareness of BIM in Europe. The BIM implementation in some European countries such as UK and Finland is far ahead of the European “norm” so it is good to see such a conference in a new area with a wider target audience. We look forward to presenting unique BIM solutions to the attendees.”

Annu Negi, Director – Europe, Geospatial Media and Communications also made comment regarding Topcon’s involvement at GeoBIM Europe. She commented: “Topcon has been active in various BIM activities in Europe. We’re very pleased Topcon has decided to support GeoBIM Europe 2014. Topcon’s BIM knowledge and experience in the region will be a great value-addition to the conference.”
