  Event

Now in it's fourth year, the Revit Technology Conference has already established itself as the premiere BIM-based event in the Asia Pacific region.

Following the success of our Roadshow in 2007 (Sydney, Brisbane, Auckland, Melbourne, and Perth), the RTC Committee have pleasure in inviting you and your team to attend the Annual Conference to be held in Brighton Beach, Sydney. The Conference aims to draw attendees from throughout Australia and New Zealand, as well as other Asia Pacific regions.

The 2008 Annual Conference is to be held Thursday 26 June – Saturday 28 June at the Novotel Brighton Beach, Sydney.

You can now register to the Conference. Also remember to keep checking back in for updates posted in the RUGs Forums.

If you have any questions, please send email to secretary@revitconference.com.au.

Professional Development Points
The Revit Technology Conference qualifies for both formal and informal points under the education schemes mandated by both the Royal Australian Institute of Architects (RAIA) and the Building Designers Association (BDA).

We will add more information on point values and method of claim in the next few days…




Competition

Following on from the very successful competitions held in previous years (entries from the 2007 roadshow are shown at left), this year’s competition has two major prizes, for presentation and for documentation work. A large thank you to our sponsors for continuing to make this possible.

Presentation: Sponsored by Autodesk
Prize: NFR copy of any piece of Autodesk software

In the presentation section we are looking for examples of work demonstrating the best of presentation techniques in Revit. Note that this does NOT necessarily mean rendering! Layout, proportions, and most importantly, the successful conveying of your message are all vital to a quality presentation. Work can be a single image or a page layout; rendered, shaded, or other format images; or anything else that centres around presenting your work to others.


Documentation: Sponsored by Hewlett Packard
Prize: HP xw4600 Workstation

This section is intended to showcase 2D documentation / annotation work carried out within Revit. As the penetration of Revit into the marketplace increases, and we see more projects in construction or completed, the importance of the 2D tools in Revit are growing rapidly. Here is your chance to demonstrate your mastery of these tools, and win a complete workstation solution from HP, the market leader in CAD hardware solutions.

The competition will be judged by your fellow delegates and awarded on the basis of the 'best' Revit work. Remember: ALL WORK MUST BE PRODUCED ENTIRELY IN REVIT!

Please provide your entry as a maximum of 2 x A3 sheets, preferably portrait orientation, with any information that identifies you or your company either blanked out or removed (we will not accept entries with identifying information on them). Your entry will be given a number, and this will be used on the judging forms distributed to all the delegates for voting. Entries can be submitted prior to the start of the conference, but must be received no later than registration on Friday morning. Please do not vote for your own work, or work from your company! Please also provide an electronic copy (in jpeg format) of the submission so that we may include it in the slideshow that will be running on an ongoing basis in the breakout room.
