"Attending the BIM Invitational Meetup is crucial for staying ahead in our AEC industry. It offers unparalleled opportunities for professional development, networking with industry leaders, discovering innovative solutions, and gaining valuable insights that can drive personal and business growth. With the absence of BILTNA this year, this event is a must-attend for anyone looking to enhance their skills, build meaningful connections, and stay competitive in a rapidly evolving field."

Steve Faust

"Small conferences are great because you get to meet people in person and have time to hang out, ask questions, and bounce ideas around.  Often the people at these types of conferences are some of the experts in their field so it’s a great opportunity to connect and gain industry insights."

Robert Gadbaw

We try to make it a priority when an opportunity arises to interact with users from the industry. Unfortunately, a lot of conferences are so big that users see and talk to so many people it’s tough to remember everyone and everything they saw. This kind of conference is perfect for both parties, we get to listen to their needs and with a bit of luck they can take away some knowledge that we share.

About The Founders

With the cancellation of BILT NA, our founders recognized an opportunity to not only support the professional development of our peers but also to realize an idea we've been discussing for years. The Invitational isn't intended to replicate the remarkable programming by DBEI (and hopefully, they will resume), but rather to serve as a complementary event to the standard conference format. Here, our founders aim to offer an alternative where attendees aren't constrained by popular class selections and can engage in enriching discussions without rushing to the next session on their checklist.

Ways To Support Further


Sponsors play a crucial role in the success of our conference, enabling organizers to enhance the experience for attendees and cover essential costs. Their support allows for the creation of engaging sessions, networking opportunities, and logistical arrangements. Additionally, donations from individuals or organizations are warmly welcomed and greatly appreciated, as they contribute to the sustainability and growth of the event. Every contribution, whether big or small, helps ensure that the BIM Invitational Meetup remains a valuable platform for industry collaboration and innovation.
