Munich, October 18, 2021 – After almost two years without physical events, the relevant trade fairs for the construction industry are finally taking place in person again. The brands of the Nemetschek Group, one of the world’s leading software vendors for the AEC/O industry, will be presenting at events, live, hybrid, and virtually in the next few months: at BIM World Munich, Digital Construction Week, the Allplan Global Summit, and the Vectorworks Design Summit.
The spread of open standards, the necessary collaboration between individual trades, increasing digitalization, and the ecological and economic challenges the construction industry is facing are the dominant topics in the AEC/O industry this year. These challenges are also reflected in the programs of BIM World Munich and Digital Construction Week, which will be held as face-to-face events for the first time since 2019.
For the past six years, BIM World Munich has been the leading trade show for all stakeholders in the construction, real estate, and urban development industries. This year, the event will once again provide a comprehensive market overview of the latest digital methods, services, and technologies to enable further – and sustainable – growth in the construction industry. BIM World Munich will take place at the International Congress Center Munich on November 23 and 24, 2021. Under the motto “Shape the World”, the Nemetschek Group brands Allplan, Bluebeam, Data Design System, dRofus, FRILO, GRAPHISOFT, NEVARIS, SCIA, Solibri, and Vectorworks will present their solutions, provide insights at lectures, and hold informative workshops.
Almost simultaneously, from November 24 to 25, the Digital Construction Week (DCW) 2021 will take place in London at the ExCeL premises. The focus will be on the latest technologies, the future of the construction industry, and networking. Together with the Nemetschek Group, the brands FRILO, dRofus, GRAPHISOFT, Solibri, and Vectorworks will be exhibiting.
In addition to BIM World Munich and Digital Construction Week, Allplan and Vectorworks are holding their own virtual events for customers and interested parties. On October 20 and 21, Allplan, the leading European provider of OPEN BIM solutions, is hosting the Allplan Global Summit for the first time, with the motto “Build the Future”. With over 30 presentations, the focus of the virtual event is on the digital transformation of the industry: architects, engineers, precast planners, contractors, and steel construction specialists can learn more about the future of construction and supported with the transition. Exciting presentations about the future of construction include the keynote by Viktor Várkonyi, Chief Division Officer, Planning & Design Division and Member of the Executive Board of the Nemetschek Group, on the concept of Building Lifecycle Intelligence and the presentation by Don Jacobs, Vice President Technology & Innovation, Build & Construction Division, Nemetschek Group on the topic of artificial intelligence in the construction industry. In addition, the new Allplan 2022 will be presented. The Nemetschek brand SCIA is also participating in the event.
Design professionals, customers, educators, and students from the architecture, landscaping, and entertainment industries around the world will have the opportunity to gain an insight from Vectorworks leadership and product experts – the provider of design software for architects and landscape planners – at the virtual Vectorworks Design Summit from November 1 to 3. Live training sessions and presentations by Vectorworks partners and other users complete the Design Summit program, providing a comprehensive look at working with the BIM and CAD software that allows designers to design without limits.
Whether you are a BIM manager, architect, facility manager, engineer, or general contractor, the four events in October and November offer a diverse program – both virtual and physical – for all participants within the construction lifecycle. The Nemetschek Group is looking forward to this year’s fall schedule of events and the wide range of learning opportunities it offers.
