About this event

Since 2011 and the first ICE BIM conference, the construction industry has been digitally transforming itself, driven by the BIM Level 2 Government mandate. ICE has always been at the forefront of this effort, bringing the government and industry into the same room, offering high-value technical knowledge and providing a platform for debate on the key strategic steps to unlock potential.

On 13 October, the seventh ICE BIM conference will also be transforming itself to "Shaping a Digital World" to provide invaluable insight on how to transform not only the tools we are using, but also our fundamental approach to the assets we build, maintain and operate.
