Slàinte Mhath to BILT Europe!

Are you starting to get excited for BILT Europe now just weeks away?
We are too! And we still have so much news and announcements to share with you – we still haven’t even announced our keynote yet!!!

But today’s announcements are not about speakers or sponsors or who should come to BILT. Today is about the evening events – held by many to be one of the best aspects of the conference, allowing you to connect with like minded individuals keen to connect and share knowledge well after the last class has ended (perhaps with a drink in hand!)
Remember if you are registered for the full three days of BILT all of the social events are included in your ticket.

Having seen how well you all dolled up last year for our social events last year, we’ve decided to ask you all to dress up again this year with a touch of Scottish charm, for our Ceilidh Gala Dinner at the National Museum of Scotland. Step into the world of Scotland and Edinburgh with this fun and festive night! Featuring lots of food, drinks, entertainment and lots of music and dancing, this will be the premier social event of BILT Europe!

You will have the chance to sip cava, dance the night away or retire to our networking lounge to continue the week’s discussions of models, skill and synchronisation.

This year we are mixing it up, traditionally our Thursday evening function is held in the Exhibition Hall, but this year, we will welcome you to A Night at Gosford House sponsored by Bluebeam. Be welcomed by pipes and drums band into Gosford House, an imposing neo-classical mansion which was one of the last great architectural commissions of the celebrated Scots architect, Robert Adam. Enjoy a tour of the Artwork throughout the house or prefer a Whiskey tasting of the Wemyss family whiskies? It doesn’t stop there, join in the Highland Games, watch Clan Fighters battle it out all while listening to a great Live Ceilidh band. A Hog Roast, BBQ and Buffet is on offer while you relax and enjoy after a long first day.

Friday night will be our traditional drinks and canapes in the exhibition hall with the sponsors. This gives you a chance to chat with our sponsors and checkout the booths in a more relaxed atmosphere. Listen out for announcements on the day for any after parties – official or otherwise!

Remember to select each social function during the registration process or modify your registration and select it. If you haven’t yet registered for BILT Europe, REGISTER NOW!

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
