Esri has been announced as a gold sponsor at the GEO|Design+BIM 2018 event in Amsterdam where it is set to showcase the benefits of GIS and BIM integration for better infrastructure, planning and design works

The event is scheduled to take place from 1-2 November 2018, in Amsterdam.

This year’s theme is “Enabling Tomorrow’s Connected Infrastructure”, which will see the GEO| Design+BIM 2018 event delve further into the integration of geospatial technology, BIM, and other associated industry trends including big data analytics, IoT, drones, VR, robotics, cloud worksharing, city information modeling, digital twin.

Esri, the global leader in location intelligence, recently announced its alliance with Autodesk to enhance BIM and GIS workflows integration. The integration aims to improve efficiency and collaboration for owner/operators, such as city and regional government planners and executives, and AEC firms who plan, design, and carry out capital projects.

Danny R. Spillmann, Director, Global Business Development, Natural Resources & AEC said: “Combining location information during the design and construction phase brings context to all types of projects.

“Our focus is to enable organizations to respond quickly to changing environments by improving workflows that integrate BIM and GIS information so that everyone can participate and engage throughout the project lifecycle.”

Anamika Das, Vice President, Outreach and Business Development at Geospatial Media and Communications and organiser of the conference added: “We’re delighted to take this journey with Esri to foster our common objective of connecting geospatial community with AEC community, and highlight the value of geospatial integration in BIM workflow at GEO|Design+BIM.

“With continuous support from Esri, GEO|Design+BIM is developing as a mature platform for business users to network and collaborate.”

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.
