BIM Show Live 2018; exploring the digital trends of tomorrow

BIM Show Live is best known as the Construction Industry conference which packs a punch. Far from the norm, it’s disruptive thinking elevates this technology-led event to one of the most trusted platforms for learning, knowledge sharing and industry insight for all things digital construction.

In 2017, we saw BIM Show Live delivered in Newcastle upon Tyne, an area rich in engineering and manufacturing, with a growing economy and not to mention home of BIM Show Live founders; Space Group.

For 2018, BIM Show Live will once again be staged in Newcastle’s the Boiler Shop, Stephenson’s Quarter – on Wednesday 28 February and Thursday 1 March.

This two-day conference will wow with its future-thinking and focus on emerging technologies to benefit the construction industry.

BIM Show Live is a driving force for the implementation of BIM processes and Space Group CEO Rob Charlton commented: “We’ve been running the show now for six years, and each year we never fail to present the new and the wonderful. Our industry is progressing at an accelerated rate and we believe at BIM Show Live we have an obligation to bring our visitors the very best our industry has to offer for technology and digital construction, plus what has changed year-on-year and what this means for future projects.

“And this year we’re introducing a new BIM Awards programme. This is an opportunity to recognise and reward the achievements of construction industry professionals, those pioneers who are leading the way for younger generations and to pass on the mantel of BIM-excellence.”

The BIM Awards will be staged in advance of BIM Show Live, in London on Thursday 2 November at the Bike Shed. Winners from the awards will then be given the opportunity to present at BIM Show Live and demonstrate why they are indeed the best of the best.

This unique set of awards has 17 categories, containing a mixture of categories that invite submissions from organisations and nominations for individuals.

Rob added: “We know there is amazing work being carried out in the digital built environment both in the UK and globally, and we want to reward that talent, innovation, determination and tenacity.”
