BIM BOP 2019!  13th Annual BIM Conference

Friday, June 28th, 8 am – 5 pm, University of Southern California

BIM BOP 2019! – the 13th annual BIM conference at USC. Come hear expert speakers speak about building information modeling. This is an excellent opportunity to get caught up on the current state of BIM in the AECO building industry. There will be over 30 speakers grouped in sessions about BIM in architecture (both small and large firms), construction, engineering & fabrication, landscape architecture, and Rhino-Revit interoperability. Last year’s conference was pretty amazing, and I hope that this year goes well too. The price is only $55 (until June 20) including lunch! An additional benefit is the 5 AIA CEUs or 5.5 CM-BIM CE credits that you will earn by attending the entire event. For questions, please contact Karen Kensek (
