Later this month, I will be presenting a 25-minute seminar at 2pm on both days of the Construction Computing Show 2007 at the Emirates Stadium in north London, 21-22 November.
The educational seminar programme is being run by the IT Construction Forum (part of Constructing Excellence) and several of its IT Partners are involved: BIW of course, plus Asite, 4Projects, Union Square, MPS and Comit – all of whom I know – and Cubic Interactive and CADsmart – with whom I am less familiar. But after a quick bit of online research, I learned that:
- Cubic Interactive provides intranet-type solutions and has had some success in delivering solutions to architects’ practices (a field which, I think, positions it as something of a competitor to Union Square), and
- CADsmart does CAD skills assessment software.
Any way, for the second year running I am down to speak about “Construction Collaboration Technologies” and will be completely updating the ‘Extranet Evolution’ presentation I used at last year’s event – perhaps trying to make it a little more provocative.
The show itself has, according to the website, attracted more than 30 exhibitors. However, some of last year’s exhibitors – notably collaboration technology vendors Business Collaborator and CTSpace (formerly known as BuildOnline) – don’t appear to be returning this year.
As some readers will know (see Collaboration vendors on awards trail – 2), the Construction Computing Show has an associated awards event. According to an email I have just received, online voting closes on Monday 12 November at 1pm.
