An incredible lineup of knowledgeable speakers from across the United States!


The two days’ contents are very different from each other: BIM GAP is August 22 and BIM EDGE is August 23.  See the descriptions below for details. You must register for each separately. As usual, there are no refunds if you do not attend (send someone else from the office instead) – the money is donated to the expense of running the conference.  You must register and attend to receive your free book.

AIA CEU: 5 Learning Units for each day


Sponsored by:



BIM GAP will feature presentations about the bridging GAPs between BIM tools (analysis, construction, facilities management, and more) and also bridging the GAPs between BIM people (contractors, architects, owners, managers, subs, consultants). Learn how professionals are dealing with these gaps towards realizing the full potential of BIM.
