The BIM Management Institute - BIMMI is organizing in 2016 and for the fourth year, the BIM International Conference (BIC). This year BIC will have two Editions: São Paulo, Brazil (September 29 and 30) and Lisbon, Portugal (October 13 and 14).
BIM stands for Building Information Modelling and its use is already compulsory in some countries. This tendency is progressively sprawling worldwide, so it is expected to be an international demand for the construction industry in a near future. 2016 itself represents for some countries a decisive milestone in achieving BIM implementation at a government level.
Since BIMMI continuously seek to be aligned with international industry demands and processual/technological tendencies, in this year edition BIC purposes a special contribution on BIM worldwide implementation roadmap.
Considering the suggestions of BIC attendees on previous editions, in 2016 the Conference will innovate with one day dedicated to BIM software trainings and workshops. If in the past the Conference was known for the remarkable presentations of recognized BIM experts (along with several sponsor and abstracts presentations), this year BIC challenges itself with a new goal: highlight on BIM software best practices and collaboration.
To do so, BIC 2016 is organized in two days, the first one being more practical with workshops and trainings from its sponsors and abstract presentations. The second day follows the traditional format with Keynote presentations from international BIM experts.
The conference will remain full of charm and character with magnificent social events as in previous years. These events appeal to the culture and networking.
