BIM Diary – The story so far


BIM Diary is now into it’s 3rd year of activity online, sharing BIM events from all over the world. I have been independently running this calendar free of charge since May 2012 and will continue to do so while I feel it is still useful to the community. As a neutral and completely unbiased platform, I am more than happy to add events from individuals, companies, resellers, communities and software vendors – The only criteria is that the event is related to BIM or future technologies in the AEC sector.

Although this calendar is solely updated and maintained by myself – I wouldn’t be able to keep it running without the help from the BIM community.

Users either contact me via email or Twitter (as above) to add their event to the calendar. By simply Tweeting to @BIMDiary with information will allow me to add the event to the diary – I do not have time to keep track of, and hunt down all these events, so the community participation is essential to keep the diary running – Thanks to everyone who inform me of events which aren’t necessarily of any direct benefit to themselves! This is certainly not an ego project or a way to push more traffic to my blog – I have allowed websites such as BIM Crunch, BIM4SMEs and many BIM blogs to embed the calendar on their websites – The more people who benefit from this calendar, the more worthwhile the time spent maintaining it becomes!

It’s always nice to get feedback as above which reassures me that the calendar is useful to the community. @BIMDiary Twitter account has also racked up more than 1000 followers in this short period of time! This ensures that every time an event is added – at least 1000 people are made aware of this.

If you want your event added to the diary don’t hesitate to contact me and I will be happy to add and advertise it as soon as I get the time to do so.  A special thanks goes out to the #ukBIMcrew and especially Shaun Farrell & Matt Mccarter who have been the top contributors to the diary over this period.
