BIM Summit Qatar - Day One

I am travelling out to the Middle East today as a speaker at the BIM Summit Qatar. This event is organised in association with buildingSMART Middle East, BIM Journal and IQPC.

Looking at the list of speakers it is fantastic to see a good representation from the UK. I think this goes to show that internationally now the UK is being looked at as one of the leaders in BIM adoption and digital construction.

Speakers from the UK include Lee Zebedee (@leezebedee) from Ramboll and also Nigel Clark from Hilson Moran.
Lee Zebedee - Ramboll
Nigel Clark - Hilson Moran
Of the international speakers it is difficult to pick just one or two to highlight. But if pushed, I must say I am looking forward to the presentations from the following:
Tahir Sharif - President of buildingSMART Middle East
Heikki Kulusjarvi - Chief Exec of Solibri
Phil Bernstein - Vice President Autodesk
Tom Dengenis - Chief Exec Synchro
 I'll update this blog each day with a little post of my thoughts and also some pictures.

Update: A couple of pics from Dubai Airport...
Nice big garden - full size trees and pond... but inside
Love this tennis picture of Federer and Agassi on the helipad 205 metres up
