Collaborative software provider Bluebeam has revealed the details for a two-day virtual conference aimed at the architectural, engineering and construction (AEC) industries
Taking place 28-29 September, XCON Anywhere is Bluebeam’s first-ever virtual XCON and is designed to take advantage of the virtual platform to increase learning and access to presenters from top AEC firms.
A spin-off from the company’s annual Bluebeam Extreme Conference (XCON), it will bring together industry leaders, data champions and process innovators to explore the latest trends in digital construction, deepen their understanding of Bluebeam’s collaborative software solutions and gain knowledge that can be used on projects to improve outcomes.
XCON Anywhere will feature all customer-led lectures, multiple panel discussions, a special event with Fred Mills from The B1M, and two keynote presentations from Bluebeam’s executive team.
The keynotes from Bluebeam’s team will welcome attendees and set the tone for the conference, and a second Product Keynote will provide insight into Bluebeam’s vision for solution development in 2021 and beyond.
‘Virtual global gathering’
“It’s more meaningful than ever to get to welcome everyone back to XCON this year, and we’re energised to be able to collectively share the knowledge and lessons we’ve learned as an industry through Bluebeam’s new XCON Anywhere online experience,” said Jon Elliott, CEO of Bluebeam.
“We are truly fortunate to have the opportunity to host this virtual global gathering of focused, innovative AEC professionals; to come together, learn from one another and build on the successes we’ve achieved as team members, companies, and as an industry over what may come to be seen as the most transformative period in our industry’s history.”
Training lectures will be tailored for beginning, intermediate and advanced users, and will focus on topics including: collaborative constructability reviews, supercharging government e-Plan approvals, elevating the preconstruction process, eliminating time-consuming tasks with automations , and preparing your documents for use in the field.
