About

6th ME BIM Summit

Following a divergence into the virtual sphere in 2020, the Middle East’s leading BIM-focused summit is back in 2021 as a live event that will feature the industry’s brightest minds in an all-new format that is sure to educate and inform even the most experienced of construction professionals.

Over the last six years, the ME BIM Summit has grown from an event focused on introducing BIM to an underserved audience, to an event that is now the industry’s leading platform for discussion, debate, and education about the far-reaching potential of BIM usage, and how the technology is driving growth, evolution, and innovation across all segments of the construction sector.

Eminent experts and thought leaders from across the industry have attended previous ME BIM Summits, with representatives from the region’s largest and most important contractors, consultants, designers and government bodies taking part in in-depth panel discussions and presentations.

What to expect in

2021

This year will see delegates attend a one day live event that will focus on three key themes that will be crucial to the industry in 2021: Disruption, Digitalisation, and the Democratisation of Data.

Insightful

Knowledge Sessions

Last year’s event featured presentations and participation from the likes of Dubai Municipality, The Red Sea Development Company, the CIOB, Heriot-Watt University, and other industry leaders such as ALEC, EllisDon and KEO International Consultants.
