Many thanks to all those that tuned into our webinar on Digital Twins on 20th May 2020. For those that missed it, we have published all the videos from the event on the School of Built Environment, Engineering and Computing YouTube channel at the links below.
These videos should help answer some of the above questions but do keep checking our blog for our follow up thought pieces on the issues raised.
We are pleased to be able to share with you the dates for the next five thinkBIM Conferences. We have some great topics lined-up including #manufacturing, #DigitalTwin, AI/Mobile + much more! Running for over six years now, thinkBIM conferences blend presentations from key speakers in the digital construction field with panel debates, round table discussions, networking and often a little something different for the final session. Many of our presenters have gone on to be leaders in the BIM/Digital field at their respective organisations as well as sitting on national and international forums and advisory groups.
Key dates for 2019/2020 are as follows;
