Bluebeam has unveiled a two-day virtual conference aimed at professionals working in the architectural, engineering, and construction (AEC) sectors.

Designed to increase learning and provide more access to presenters from top AEC firms, XCON Anywhere will be the collaborative software provider’s first-ever virtual XCON.

A spin-off from the company’s annual Bluebeam Extreme Conference (XCON), the conference aims to bring together industry leaders, data champions, and process innovators.

The conference will explore the latest trends in digital construction and deepen attendees’ understanding of Bluebeam’s collaborative software solutions.

XCON Anywhere will feature all customer-led lectures, multiple panel discussions, a special event with Fred Mills from The B1M, and two keynote presentations from Bluebeam’s executive team.

The keynotes from Bluebeam’s team will welcome attendees and set the tone for the conference.

A second Product Keynote will provide insight into Bluebeam’s vision for solution development in 2021 and going into the future.

‘Build on successes’

Commenting on the conference, Jon Elliott, CEO of Bluebeam, said: “It’s more meaningful than ever to get to welcome everyone back to XCON this year, and we’re energised to be able to collectively share the knowledge and lessons we’ve learned as an industry through Bluebeam’s new XCON Anywhere online experience.

“We are truly fortunate to have the opportunity to host this virtual global gathering of focused, innovative AEC professionals; to come together, learn from one another, and build on the successes we’ve achieved as team members, companies, and as an industry over what may come to be seen as the most transformative period in our industry’s history.”

Training lectures will be tailored for beginning, intermediate, and advanced users.

The lectures will focus on the following topics:

  • Collaborative constructability reviews
  • Supercharging government e-Plan approvals
  • Elevating the preconstruction process
  • Eliminating time-consuming tasks with automations 
  • Preparing your documents for use in the field

The conference will take place on 28-29 September.
