ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
GEOBIM 2020, bearing the theme, Construction 4.0: Harnessing GEOBIM Readiness with 4IR Advancements, is scheduled to take place on 3-4 December 2020, Valencia, Spain. After six years of initiating conversations on GeoDesign+BIM and GEOBIM in Amsterdam, the Netherlands; the GEOBIM 2020 conference will initiate dialogue on the preparedness of the AEC industry in using integrated geospatial and BIM technologies along with other digital technologies (or 4IR technologies) and collaborative workflows.
WHY VALENCIA, SPAIN?
Valencia, also known as the iconic architecture city, is Spain’s third-largest city. Architecturally, Valencia brings forth a contrast of the past, the present and the future. From gothic gargoyles to modernist facades and famously futuristic City of Arts and Sciences Complex – Valencia is the hub for the construction technology (ConTech) enthusiasts especially those working in planning, designing and architecture of grandeur projects. To discuss the implementation of integrated geospatial and BIM solutions – and its enablement via 4IR technologies across the plan, design, build, and operate and maintenance phase of the construction projects – we don’t think there can be a better place to hold GEOBIM other than Valencia!
Over the past decade, the conversation in the AEC industry has gradually transitioned to utilization of Industry 4.0 (4IR) technologies in the lifecycle of a construction project – bringing in an era of Construction 4.0 across both horizontal and vertical construction. In the next few years, as architect, engineering and construction (AEC) firms double their investments in construction technologies, dialogues and deliberations are necessary for harnessing GEOBIM Readiness across construction lifecycle projects with 4IR advancements. For digital construction to percolate the construction lifecycle process, stakeholders must assess their preparedness in adopting integrated geospatial and BIM solutions enabled by 4IR technologies...
KEY TOPICS OF DISCUSSION
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
“I enjoyed the conference very much. I attended the sessions on BIM – BIM 4 Engineering, BIM 4 Construction, BIM 4 Asset Management – it was very interesting to hear the different stories and I was very overwhelmed by how far the industry has gone in this field”Niels Reyngoud Program Manager - Asset Management and BIM, Province Gelderland
“Between taking part in a panel about the future of design & construction, and chairing a panel for Women in BIM, I had the pleasure of seeing some incredible presentations by colleagues from around the globe, and met some new, exciting and extremely passionate people from across the industry.”Vicki Reynolds Multiplex, UK
“I liked the show primarily because of the education factor on what is happening around GEOBIM and how the interactions between the BIM environment is translating over into the Geospatial environment – I liked the fact that there was an emphasis on underground infrastructure, a topic most often ignored.”Michael Twohig DGT Associates, USA
“GEOBIM was a great conference, incredible opportunities, incredible topics, and a really diverse group of people to really stir the pot for the construction industry and what we can get to real actionable change in the industry.”Tony Sabat SSOE Group, USA
