Speakers:
Stephen Hagan, FAIA
Calvin Kam, Ph.D, AIA

This session was a review of the history of the BIM Awards. The speakers outlined some of the noted trends in BIM. They pointed out the move away from a few BIM flag wavers towards many users. BIM adoption going from 1 heroic advocate to large groups of advocates working in concert.
About the awards themselves, the key point made was that the awards emphasize achieving design results that could not be possible without BIM.
