The unique format attracted 263 delegates, from 16 countries including the MENA region, USA, Europe and China. It was the highest number of participants so far spanning from students to CEOs, from young professionals to long-time experts all engaging in diverse presentations, networking opportunities and knowledge exchange.According to the popular tradition of the previous four events the introduction was delivered by a student from Qatar University, who introduced the audience to BIM from her own perspective and experience. The following process section featured turnkey solution outlines for BIM management process planning, safer buildings and practical examples from Qatar’s Mega Projects, like the world cup stadiums, Doha Metro and Lusail City. The people section illuminated BIM key roles, stakeholder interests and training developments and trainings in the region. Interoperability issues, product lifecycle management and live modeling using cloud computing were covered in the technology section, where delegates were also able to participate in a live augmented reality demonstration with their own mobile devices. The conference day was completed by the current state of local adoption of global standards and the latest results of the Qatar BIM Project within the policy section.

We would like to thank all delegates for their attendance and vivid contribution to the interesting discussions that took place during the day. Special thanks go to our speakers; for their passion and the valuable knowledge transfer which gave an insight and an outlook on the industry.

The immense interest and growing number of attendees over the past three years have shown that the demand for BIM services in the region is steadily increasing. The event series has been an invaluable opportunity to bring together regional experts and interested parties from all areas of the industry, and to increasingly involve students and young professionals to be prepared for the growing demand in Qatar.
