DTS Online 2020
26 AUGUST, 2020 & 21 OCTOBER, 2020.
The Design Technology Summit (DTS) is focused on advancing the conversation of how design-oriented organizations can transition to effective digital workflows. The role of Design Technology Leader is critical to helping guide firms through this transition and beyond, by bringing together knowledge of practice, computation, and business. DTS is the place to come and discuss all of this with your peers and colleagues.
DTS ONLINE 2020
DTS Online will focus on the cultural, technological, and business aspects of Digital Transformation in the professional services. We will look at these aspects from two perspectives:
1.Internally focused transformation – which will explore teams, collaboration, mentorship, learning, and project delivery.
2. Externally focused transformation -which will explore opportunities in finding new ways to engage with existing clients, gain new ones, and generate business.

DBEI Insight Webinars help me stay up to date on the global BIM trends and learn more about various processes of the AEC community. Plus, it truly feels like friends helping friends, just like at the BILT conferences!
BILT epitomises the desire for change in today’s construction and building management industry as it gathers together similarly motivated professionals from all sides of the conversation and gives them a platform to exchange ideas as freely as they wish to exchange data. I attend BiLT every year to learn, to share, and to re-energise my enthusiasm for driving digital change in the built environment.
BILT offers a great opportunity to engage with our industry partners, to break down the collaboration barriers, and to get an understand of the possibilities of technology within our industry.
This is the number one conference for both training and strategic thinking in BIM and Digital Engineering in the built environment. Truly a meeting of minds with the best practitioners from all parts of the industry and all over the world.
It's always great to see what industry peers are up to. BILT is a reality check that validates whether you're on the right track within your industry. As always there are a few golden nuggets to take away and implement back at your own practice. The fresh perspective that different points of view provide is invaluable.
"For me it was a great opportunity to engage experts, new learners, and those curious about what is possible. Everyone had something to contribute - how much better can that be!!! And the best part is I learn new things I can use - I didn't expect that."
"I came in to the Hackathon with very little coding experience and wondering if I would get much out of it at all, but the event surpassed my expectations and was a fantastic experience both as a learning opportunity and as a networking event and challenge for all of our team's abilities."
"This was my first Hackathon and it was a blast! I really didn't know what to expect going in and was a little worried about my "hacking" skills. However, there were people of all skill levels and experts and other team members were very helpful and supportive. It was a great learning experience and I hope to do it again soon!"
‘We are completely satisfied with the (BCS) experience, we were able to engage the “right” people. It has led to future opportunities and ideas to move forward’
