Keynote Speakers and Course Schedule Announced for Third Biennial GRAPHISOFT BIM North America User Conference

Words: Bronzella Cleveland

GRAPHISOFT® will host its North America BIM Conference March 22-24 in Las Vegas. The event, now in its third year, welcomes users from around the world to the only conference in North America that is 100-percent ARCHICAD.

Presentations from ARCHICAD “Power Users” and GRAPHISOFT experts help conference attendees explore ARCHICAD to push the limits of design and empowers them to use building information modeling in disruptive ways.

“Our unparalleled software solution is ideal for anyone who designs, renovates or constructs buildings,” said Steve Benford, managing director, at GRAPHISOFT North America. “This is a special opportunity to focus on our users, who are highly passionate and benefit greatly from meeting with like-minded professionals.”

Co-founder and CEO of online showcase and industry resource Architizer, Marc Kushner, and internationally-lauded architecture firm, Bjarke Ingels Group Partner, Kai-Uwe Bergmann are the scheduled keynote speakers. They highlight a commitment to innovation as well as creating architecture rich in individual personality, local context, and highly social experiences.

As conference attendees learn from the expert course instructors and keynote speakers, the friendly, all-access atmosphere of the gathering gives them time to speak one-on-one about hot industry topics, trends, and technologies. The AIA-approved course line-up earns attendees up to 15 AIA Learning Units by conference end. The networking opportunities between like-minded, passionate ARCHICAD users and even developers of the software allow for spontaneous brainstorming and problem-solving sessions. No other conference delivers as many chances to forge new alliances, build new business contacts and discuss implementing a new technology or BIM workflow; the opportunity to interact face-to-face with ARCHICAD developers and power users is invaluable, GRAPHISOFT says.
