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 transform to "Shaping a Digital World". The one day event will provide insight on how to change not only the tools we are using, but also our fundamental approach to the assets we build, maintain and operate.

The quality of speakers and delegates differentiate this event, offering learning and business opportunities that offer value for your time out of the office. Follow the link below to preview who will be in the room.
