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 about the same percentage of sessions. But Data Strategy? Customization and Coding? Dramatic decreases as a percentage of the overall program.

Percentage Increase

Or so it would seem. The chart above tells only part of the story. The chart below illustrates that in 2019 we’ve introduced a series of session types and tags that explain why some session categories seem to have decreased in 2019. From Legal/ Commercial to Computational Design – these session types didn’t clearly exist in 2018. 2019 sees an important increase in session types that allow delegates to incorporate technical expertise and a strategy for the future.

BILT. Buildings. Infrastructure. Lifecycle and Technology. It’s more than one technical platform can manage and requires a best of breed solution that takes into account open standards, interoperable workflow and long term business thinking. Here’s the overall story.

It’s important for BILT to evolve and accommodate new thinking and directions that help our attendees prepare for the present and the future. Another important reason to see you in Seattle this July

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.
