Whilst the snow started to fall we hosted our second BIM Open Mic on November 30 here in Cambridge. Following drinks and food we got down to the serious part of the event and that was the open forum discussion that took place.
Many differing views from varying disciplines were put out to the room and a healthy open debate ensued, highlighting some of the challenges we face as an industry when trying to deliver to BIM Level 2 maturity.
The BIM Open Mic events are normally free to attend. The £10 charge for attending our BIM Regions East events is to gain committed attendance and help cover venue and catering.
We are thankful to our event sponsors SES and Digital Green, who covered the cost of the venue and catering. This meant the £10 charge reserved a place, if you turned up on the night then we would refund the £10 charge, if you didn’t turn up, then we donate their fee to charity.
We are delighted to say that even with a packed room, not one single person asked for their money back so we have donated £220 to Jimmy’s Night Shelter in Cambridge on your behalf.
