    Any good BIM conferences in the US this year?

    Outside of the Autodesk thing in Las Vegas.

    Is it better than the Autodesk one? I haven't been to either.

    I represent a structural engineering company, we almost exclusively work on buildings.

    Also, anything in the DC-NY-Boston area?

    I am curious as well. Never been to AU or BILT (conference noob!)... Looking at the BILT website, it appears they have "sub-events" happening within that same week as well? They are focused on slightly different aspects of BIM Industry? For a first-timer would a 3-day pass to BILT be the best bet?

    If you had a choice between AU or BILT for your first conference, which would you choose?

    BILT & AU are both great events, but they are different. AU is huge (like 10,000 people), BILT has been right around 500-700 the last few years. The sub-events are more focused on a particular aspect-
    Data Day is looking at data:
    we want to understand/learn what to do with the data after it is created in the authoring software
    BCS is looking at the physical content (i.e. families) and how it affects the building process from design through FM.

    IMHO- BILT would be a better first event to go to. It is smaller and a little more focused; AU covers everything Autodesk makes (Revit, CAD, Viz & Game software, etc) and it can be a little tough to get your head around it. And totally get the 3-day pass.

    FWIW, it was just announced that Midwest University, one of the bigger BIM conferences, has been postponed due to Coronavirus. No timeframe announced for reschedule yet. If this thing is still around in November I could see AU being affected potentially. BILT is in the summer in a warm weather city but possibly could be affected as well.

    I was wondering what they were going to do about MU since it was supposed to be next week.

    Yep, here's the email I received at least:

    [FONT=&quot]Midwest University, scheduled for March 18-19, 2020, has been postponed. The health and well-being of our Midwest University family is of utmost importance to ATG. [/FONT] [FONT=&quot]We did not come by this decision lightly. Along with your safety, it is critical to us that we bring you the best curriculum and entertainment. Due to increasing cancellations of classes, exhibitors and attendees, we have decided to postpone the event so that the MU that you attend is of the highest caliber.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]We understand the significance of this event for our AEC community and are exploring options to reschedule this event as soon as possible. We will be in touch as soon with the new plan.
    Registrants may request a full refund of the MU ticket price or may transfer it to the future MU event.
    [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Thank you for your willingness to be a part of the Midwest’s largest AEC conference. Please watch the Midwest University page on LinkedIn and your inbox for updates.[/FONT]
