Hot of the heels of BIM Show Live for Manufacturers, the Building Centre will host another manufacturer-specific event that will help those supplying building products to take advantage of BIM processes.

BIM for Manufacturers, aka BIM4M2, have announced the ‘Help with the Journey‘ event set for July 28th at the London, UK venue that will help manufacturers gain a competitive advantage from BIM and what package they should use.

No speakers have been confirmed so far yet case study seminars and networking opportunities will also make up part of the programme. Cost of attendance is £40 and both technical and marketing staff members are encouraged to come along.
