Newforma Takes the Bull by the Horn at the Nugget 2012 User Conference

Nugget 2012 Attendees Download Mobile Apps
Day #2 at Newforma's User Conference, Nugget 2012, was not all work and no play.

Attendees took part in a full day of sessions involving five tracks that mirror Newforma’s focus on helping all members of AEC/O project teams connect and share information. The sessions provided valuable information on best practices in PIM from the unique perspective of each audience – architects and engineers involved in the design phase of a project; general contractors, construction managers, design-build companies, and specialty subcontractors involved in the construction phase; and owners managing new building construction.

In addition there is a technical track for Newforma administrators, a hands-on lab for those who prefer to learn by doing, and a usability lab where customers can test new mobility apps and product features.

Day # 2 also included an impressive line-up of speakers from AEC/O firms of every size including Affiliated Engineers, Inc., BOND, GSBS Architects, Grunley Construction, HTNB, Haskell, The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, LMN Architects, LPA, John Moriarty & Associates, PageSoutherlandPage, Parkhill, Smith & Cooper, Inc., Perkins+Will, SHW Group, and Skender Construction, will present best practices for PIM and participate in panel discussions at the event.

As the sun set in the Texas sky and the sessions were over the fun got underway in Ft. Worth known as the "City of Cowboys and Culture." One hardy group of Newforma staff tried their skills at mechanical bull riding....we suggest that they stick to their day jobs!

Now on to the final day of Nugget 2012...let the learning and fun continue.
