The Netherlands: GEO| Design+BIM, a platform that highlights the use of geospatial data analytics and Building Information Modelling (BIM) in asset spatial design, construction, and operation and maintenance, is pleased to announce Autodesk as a Gold Sponsor. The event is scheduled to take place from 1-2 November 2018, in Amsterdam.
With the theme “Enabling Tomorrow’s Connected Infrastructure”, GEO| Design+BIM 2018 will delve further into the integration of geospatial technology and BIM, and other associated industry trends including big data analytics, IoT sensors, drones, virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR), robotics, cloud worksharing, modular/offsite construction, city information modeling, digital twin, etc.
“With a global population expected to reach 10 billion people by 2050 with more than 70 percent residing in urban areas, extraordinary pressure will be placed on already strained infrastructure resources,” said Theo Agelopoulos, Director of Infrastructure Strategy at Autodesk. “To meet these challenges, we need to embrace new ways of planning, designing, building, operating and maintaining infrastructure assets. GEO|Design+BIM 2018 is the place to engage in that conversation and we are pleased to be a sponsor of such a significant event.”
“Our ambition is to make GEO|Design+BIM a true business user conference. With the support of Autodesk, the industry leader with strong user base worldwide, we’re positive we can make this happen,” adds Anamika Das, Vice President, Outreach and Business Development at Geospatial Media and Communications, the conference organizer.
GEO|Design+BIM is an exclusive event in Europe, highlighting and initiating discussions related to the use of geospatial data analytics and BIM in asset spatial design, construction, operation and maintenance. The event is a combination of two innovative platforms: GeoDesign Summit Europe and GeoBIM Europe, which were organized separately since 2013. Understanding the relevance and importance of bringing the geospatial analytics, spatial planning, architecture, engineering, construction and operation/maintenance professionals together on one platform, a combined effort was initiated in 2017, giving birth to this exciting integrated event.
