Through a link in an article on Wikipedia (hardly the most obvious place to market an event but it worked for me!), I learned about a forthcoming London conference on construction and ICT. Being held on Thursday 28 October at Central Hall in Westminster, ICT 4 Construction is sponsored by AceCAD, with Constructing Excellence is listed as a partner.
From a construction collaboration perspective, the conference programme includes John Pomeroy from Sword-CTSpace and Richard Vertigan from 4Projects; other speakers include Robin Wilkin from MPS and someone from Union Square, plus talks from RedSkyIT, AceCAD, EliteSuite, Arup and IBM.
Construction IT conferences have been in short supply in recent years so it is good to have an opportunity to network and hear what these speakers and others have to say. More importantly, it is refreshing to see a construction event priced realistically – at just £79.95 per delegate place – which will hopefully ensure a good number of industry attendees. And if this conference is a success there won’t be long to wait for the next one, as the organiser, Recep Saffet (who I know from when he organised events for Construction Computing), is already promising two further events in 2011:
- Document & Knowledge Management – 21st February 2011
- Mobile Computing – 24th June 2011
