The BIM Institute recognises that the fastest medium to engage in dialogue with industry and public is through events, while also giving people the opportunity to learn about the latest building and construction methods, products, tools and information technologies appropriate for the African continent.

These are the events that make the industry so compelling and so useful to gain insight and knowledge in new and improved technology. A chance to chat, ask questions and engage with the issues of the day in a friendly, welcoming and open manner. The digital knowledge lounge has certainly become the centre of a buzzing lively debate within the show.
