2020 will become the year of digitalisation for the construction industry

BIM World MUNICH 2019

Munich, the 6th of February 2020. After the success of the BIM World MUNICH fourth edition there is no doubt left: digital transformation leads to an upswing in the construction industry. Every day, software providers develop innovative technologies, from simple data collection to Smart Data, AI-solutions, CDEs and secured cloud-infrastructures. It becomes obvious to the decision-makers: the world of construction will be digitized in 2020. Another proof: as of today, more than 70% of the doubled exhibition area at the fifth BIM World MUNICH is sold out.

Building and real estate industry is just at the beginning of the transformation process facing many disruptions. The BIM World MUNICH supports the adaption and integration of digital technologies in the construction industry and gives a deeper understanding of Smart Data, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Common Data Environment, Big Data, IoT-technologies, Facility Management, GIS, laserscanning, digital construction products and many more topics.
The exhibition with more than 250 exhibitors, 8.000 participants and 5 stages, an Innovation Area for startups and a two-days Congress with the leading BIM-experts is now THE MEETING POINT IN THE GERMAN-SPEAKING COUNTRIES FOR DIGITALIZATION OF THE CONSTRUCTION AND REAL ESTATE INDUSTRIES.

The BIM World MUNICH 2020 is taking place on the 24th and 25th of November in ICM – International Congress Center Munich.Read the rest
