    We have a great line-up of over 35 speakers this year!  And the price is the same as last year, only $55 plus a box lunch.  We decided to keep the price as low as possible so that firms could justify letting someone have the day off or maybe even to fly to Los Angeles.

    BIM BOP?  If you were at A19 you would've seen PlusSpec, BIM & VDC inside Sketchup!  Maybe then it could be called BIM ROCKS! B)
    New technology is something every architect should see.  Did anyone else go to A'19 in Vegas, if so did you see PlusSpec in the Innovation and startup section?

    BIM ROCKS! is great!  However, the bopping really refers to what happens if the speakers don't stay on time :)     


    Do you have a contact at Sketchup or someone who uses it in southern California that might be willing to speak next year? The BIM conference is not just Revit.  There is a range of topics.

    Ahh I see, the bop is on the head & not the style of dancing... I like it! B) If the bop doesn't work, you may bring out a big hook, or a drop away floor trap door or even an ejector seat.  I would fly from Australia to see that Karen =). LOL

    I know a lot of architects and design-build firms in California that are using PlusSpec with Sketchup from concept to completion, which genre fits best? I will get you the details.

    It's great to hear you guys are putting these events on, especially if they are software agnostic as most car every little about the brand and more so about the output and usability  I should reach out to AIA Australian and see if they are planning similar.
