Meet the Expert Users – On hand to help you “Hack it Out!’

Join us in Edinburgh, 9th October for the DBEI Europe Hackathon one-day sprint event, one day prior to the Digital Built Week Europe (BILT + BCS).

If you have never attended a Hackathon before and would like to “try it out” then this is the perfect environment.  Experts will be on hand during the day to help with any ‘hack’ questions you may have. 

Remember you are not on your own, as well as the Expert Users, team-members are also there to help.

Hear from one of our Hackathon NA 2019 ‘hackers’!

“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!” Carl Storms, IMAGINiT Technologies

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
