Sadly I won’t be there but, having attended RTC Au/NZ last year (see posts here), know I will be missing a fabulous event. If you can get to Melbourne, my favourite Aussie city, hurry up and register!
RTC Australasia 2014
Pullman Hotel, Melbourne
Thursday 29 - Saturday 31 May
Well, it’s only a few weeks out from the event now, and we wanted to share with you more about some of our speakers and sessions that will be presenting at this year’s event…
David Conant was the first architect to work for Revit Technology Corporation, and was a member of the Revit design team from 1998 to 2013. He presented at the very first RTC in 2005, so it’s fitting we have him back to share with us in our 10th year.
Adam Sheather is affectionately known as a freak to many of us, somehow seemingly able to craft more than 24 hours out of each day.
If you have ever wanted learn to write Revit add-ons but you have no coding experience, he’s the man who’ll show you how - but as of going to print, there are only a few gallery seating spaces remaining available, so register now!
Chris Price has a remarkable record as a speaker at RTC. He’s a family man, but also a FAMILY man! There’s barely anything this guy can’t create, and create well at that! He’ll be covering many of the ins and outs of family creation, including enhancements to Revit in version 2015.
Steve Shell? Well, you’ll know him when you see him. He’s unmistakably the ‘rocker’, and one of the nicest guys you’ll meet. He’s conjured up some incredible ways to create really compelling visual images, all from stock-standard Revit. And he’s going to share them!
Aaron Maller. @Twiceroadsfool. Revitforum.org. Stripey socks. He’s back! ‘Nuff said.
Mike Whaley has over 30 years’ experience in construction and consults to contractors, design professionals and owners. He’s set to provide us with a glimpse into the future - what the world of design and construction will look like in 30 years’ time. He claims he’s going to transport us into the future, but we’ve seen how people get transported in The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, Mr. Whaley! Just you try!
Chris Penn (“allo, gov’na” - you’ll know him when you hear him) is the man at the helm of the new Royal Adelaide Hospital, a ground-breaking project in many respects. He’s going to lead a session on managing the business of construction, so for all you builders out there wanting to see how BIM can work for you, and how to get the best out of your consultant teams, you need to register now!
Construction - speaking of, we’ve put together a strong line-up for this year’s construction-related sessions, with several leading practitioners from Australia and from overseas. We’re keen to help the C in AEC to get the most out of BIM. Speakers include Chris Penn (Hansen Yuncken/Leighton Contractors JV), Matt Swinburne, Chris Mouflard (Trimble), Michael Whaley and Josh Lowe (Turis Systems). If you’re in construction, and you want a better handle on BIM and how to exploit it for business improvement, you need to join us!
In addition, we also have a number of sessions geared at business leadership; how to set things up right the first time, legal issues, getting more out of the surveys you commission, and aligning project requirements with team capabilities. For more information on the sessions and speakers featured at RTCAUS 2014, check out the schedule.
Competition - This year we have more flexible and personal prizes for competition winners and runners-up for our four categories: Innovation, Integration, Presentation and Documentation. Check out the competition details for more info.
Come and see what all the fuss is about!
