It’s Back To BIM Time: The First Presentations for 2014


January 9th, 2014


Well we are straight out of the BIMbox this year with the first BIM events for 2014, kicking off next week on both sides of this wide country. BIM Day Out organisers Matt Rumbelow and Levi Naas ...

What is The BIM Day Out?

Well basically it’s a festival of BIM! So what does that mean for you, the fans? Headlining BIM superstars, different software genres, multiple stages and presentations, hands on activities and collaboration jam sessions…. So it’s ‘about as much fun as BIM is ever going to be’. The event is unique in that it spans across all Industries involved with BIM from Educators to Facility Management. It endeavours to create connections in a traditionally segmented and sometimes adversarial Industry.

Are you serious?

About BIM? We are, very serious… The BIM Day Out has been envisioned as a hands on and practical BIM conference. It is based around a progressive agenda that’s focused on challenging the participants and enables them to take away experience, skills and knowledge to influence and innovate within their practice.


The BIM Day Out offers four distinct streams, with morning and afternoon sessions, across two days.  They are:

  • Basic BIM; a focus on the essentials to give attendees a good understanding of BIM and what it is and isn’t.
  • Advanced BIM; showcasing the future, what can be done, what is on the cutting edge of research, software, and education.
  • Practical BIM; Hands on Labs from Basic to Advanced levels presented by Specialist Industry experts
  • BIM Demo; Test drive the latest Software guided by Vendor ‘gurus’.

If you don’t leave a complete BIM Geek we will be rather surprised!
