After three interesting and eventful days the Expo Real 2014 in Munich came to an end. ViCon was represented for the tenth time in a row, this year illuminating the broad topic “BIM Implementation” and offering first answers to initial questions for building and underground construction from several project references worldwide.

36.900 participants were registered at the Expo Real 2014, half of it being visitors and the other half being representatives of the exhibiting companies. This impressive number makes the Expo Real the largest real estate exhibition in Europe. The 1.655 exhibitors were distributed over an area of 64.000 m² in 6 halls. Additionally there were several interactive forums and presentations which contributed to a vibrant and informative atmosphere.

ViCon’s Expo Real 2014 topic „BIM Implementation“was well chosen and therefore very much in demand from the construction as well as the real estate sector. Throughout the exhibition it was noticeable that at last the German construction industry accepted BIM as an inherent part of future building projects. Many companies inquired information about the effective adoption of BIM as a new method on their projects and the BIM implementation within the company itself. Deciding factors herby were the BIM training prospects and comparable successfully handled project references. Both issues were excellently displayed by ViCon, as since 2009 we have been using our developed training system on client sites and gained experiences from over 400 diverse building projects worldwide.

The exhibition also showed that the building market will significantly be transformed in the near future. There will be many opportunities in these dynamic times and ViCon is prepared to meet the new demand to expand its market presence and its leading position as an independent service provider and consultant for BIM.
