First Building Content Summit to be held in July

The first Building Content Summit will be held this year before the Revit Technology Conference. The summit, held on July 22, is dedicated to improving BIM content, the summit website says.   

Summit attendees are invited to “learn a different perspective, set trends, and connect with peers,” the website says. The summit will bring together designers, manufacturers, and service providers. The goal is to understand the challenges that each of these groups face. 

According to the summit website, designers seldom communicate their needs to manufacturers, who struggle to know their customer’s requirements.

“This is a unique opportunity within the BIM community,” event co-chairman Parley Burnett said in an article in Modern Steel. “Building designers and manufacturers rarely come together to understand one another's needs. This is a chance to change that.” 

The daylong summit will include a session to share the perspectives of a design firm, manufacturer, and content provider. 

The Revit Technology Conference will be held from July 23-25 in Washington, D.C. The conference will allow attendees to explore the latest technologies, learn from experts, and network with peers.

Learn more about the summit and register to attend on the summit website.
