Where Have All The Classes Gone?

Well this is looks concerning. The BLUE classes represent the 2019 program (by session type) as overall percentage. And the GREEN tags represent the 2018 program. What’s seems the problem? With the exception of the Structure session type, every session type has decreased by percentage compared to 2019. Sure – Business Strategy and Leadership is […]

The Chosen Ones

Now that the acceptance letters for the BILT NA conference in July 2019 have gone out let’s talk about what we do after we select proposals in order to make sure that we have a balanced conference schedule.

The Data Explosion

For years we have heard that data is exploding at a rate that is unprecedented.  The common information point is that more data has been created in the last two years than the previous history of the human race.  The other information point is that we create 1.7 MB of new data every second for […]

What’s A Manufacturer To Do?

I was recently visiting a customer who specializes in design services for labs. During the conversation they relayed their frustration with many manufacturer supplied BIM content. Some lack the basics such as providing a consistent Manufacturer Name and URL in the designated parameter fields that drives their integrated schedule. Sounds like BIM 101. It’s frustrating […]

Nearly 380 abstracts were submitted for the 2019 conference (BCS, DTS, Data Day and BILT). We have around 110 slots to fill. Simple math tells us that for every accepted abstract, 3.5 people are going to be disappointed. It’s actually higher than that when you consider there’s a few sessions that’ll have the same speaker.

Got some time free to spend in Melbourne?

As a Sydneysider, I always enjoy visiting Melbourne – personally for me its usually about shopping, food and art but even if your interests are a bit different there is plenty to do if you find yourself with a few hours free before or after BILT or if you are lucky – a few days. […]

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
