Networking Room 2

Supported by

In this unique virtual environment there are six Networking Rooms, each with their own topic area for discussion, insight and real-world experience. They will demonstrate Information Management learning and progression within the built and managed environment.

When you land in the BIM4Estates Networking Room you can discuss the benefits and challenges of gaining value from BIM and information/data for large estates. This will include the technologies and methodologies applied to operations and facilities management of estates. There will be lots of opportunity to speak to the people who are at the forefront of digital adoption and the emerging tech trends that are driving success in this sector. 

Each networking room is open from 08:00 to 18:00 and will be facilitated through a combination of subject matter experts, thought leaders and future thinkers! This means there will be an abundance of people to talk to and connect with throughout the whole day.
