Facilitated Panel
All Levels


This panel will focus on the topic of how design stakeholders (Architects, Engineers, Contractors, Owners) use manufacturer information in the BIM workflow.  We will learn how these stakeholders actually prefer this data to be provided and when they tend to use generic vs. manufacturer specifc information.  We will also touch on important findings from a survey that the DBEI recently sent out to a large group of design stakeholders that specifically focuses on branded content.

COVID-19 Update

20th May 2020

DBEI has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation around the world. While some parts of our society are beginning to open in baby-steps, none of us know how the situation will develop over the coming months. As such, DBEI has now made the decision to postpone all our 2020 events to 2021 as the well-being of all our partners and participants in our events remains our utmost priority. For new details on each region please visit our event pages. We have also sent communications to all registered attendees, speakers or sponsors for all of our 2020 events.

In the interim, DBEI will be launching several exciting virtual events and webinars in 2020 to continue to deliver the same expertise, insights and knowledge to the AEC industry during these uncertain times. We also have some other exciting initiatives we are working on to continue to provide value to our community, which we look forward to sharing with you all shortly.

We wish to thank you all for your support and appreciate your patience and understanding under the current circumstances and will continue to update our website and the community if there are any changes.

If you have any concerns or questions about our events please email us at info@dbei.org
