FARO, the manufacturer of high-precision 3D measurement device has confirmed bag sponsorship at GeoBIM Europe 2014. 3D laser scanning with FARO Laser Scanner aids building design at every stage of construction. Its 3D modelling tool allows users to compare the current 3D building status with CAD model at any time a quality control process which eliminates expensive and time-consuming rework. The result is high quality projects being built more quickly and at a lower cost.

Bentley Systems, the global leader dedicated to providing architects, engineers, geospatial professionals, constructors, and owner-operators with comprehensive software solutions for sustaining infrastructure, has also confirmed its presence at GeoBIM Europe 2014 as Coffee Sponsor. Bentley Systems applies information mobility to improve asset performance by leveraging information modeling through integrated projects for intelligent infrastructure. Its solutions support a broad portfolio of interoperable applications and complemented by worldwide professional services.
