If you’re in the Washington, D.C. area and your job focuses on making things for or on behalf of the government, we have an exciting new event that you’re going to want to know about. On May 8, 2018, technology evangelist, Lynn Allen, will be joined by Kate Morrical, the President of the Autodesk User Group International (AUGI), to speak about the trends in government design and construction.
During this morning-long, breakfast event, Lynn, Kate and other experts in the government implementations of BIM technologies will speak about the new solutions enabling contractors and employees to create, build and design things for the government and its constituents.
Following their keynote addresses, breakout panels will be held that will educate those in attendance about the changes, new toolkits and additional features of AutoCAD 2019 and Revit 2019 – two of the most popular and essential digital design solutions on the market today.
