Revit Technology Conference Australasia recently came to Auckland and I had the privilege of attending (for the mere cost of admission!). I started writing what became a lengthy review then I saw most probably wouldn’t read it anyway. Since it was a personal, somewhat random, recollection of my RTC experiences I’ve decided to make this the first in a series of short posts.
So close to home…
It was a bit strange to arrive at a CAD* conference without enjoying, enduring, a flight halfway around the world. Even with heavy Auckland morning traffic it was only a 40 minute commute from home. I met Wesley Benn in the foyer: “Good to see you here” he said and I replied “It was so close to home I thought I better come!”.
A very social (media) registration
Next stop was the registration desk. I was somewhat surprised to ask for my badge and get the response: “Hello, you’re Robin?, I follow you on Twitter!”. That was how I first met the lovely @LivingRoomer1.
Silvia had travelled from Europe to assist with RTCAUS, in preparation for running RTCEUR in a few months time.
As one of the awesome crew who make a conference like this ‘just happen’ Sylvia was also sometimes seen on the other side of a camera taking official conference photos!
