Special discounted Invitation to ArchiCAD Users in South Africa for the Masters of ArchiCAD Summit

Date: Thursday, February 5, 2015

We would like to invite you to join ArchiCAD users from around the world to learn from, and celebrate, a dozen masters of ArchiCAD in this first-ever online conference of ArchiCAD experts (See South Africa's very own Shawn B Hopkins of bim bakeryTM in the line up). You’ll find complete information about the Masters of ArchiCAD Summit on our website home page as well as News and Updates on the Summit blog.

Screen Shot 2015-02-05 at 10.06.39 AMThe Summit will be a LIVE event held this Thursday and Friday February 5 & 6, running from 9 am to 6 pm PST (19:00 to 04:00 SAST). Each master will speak for one hour, sharing their work in the form of case studies as well as tips, tricks, methods and strategies that allow them to gain the best advantage from ArchiCAD. With time for Q&A and a short break between sessions, we’ll start sessions every 90 minutes.

  • Due to the time zone difference, it will be difficult to attend the entire conference (or perhaps any of the sessions), however that’s not a problem: all presentations will be recorded and made available to registrants for permanent reference.

Unlike most online webinars on ArchiCAD, this will NOT be a sales show and tell extolling the virtues of ArchiCAD. Instead, these are a series of expert users who are taking the time to share the wisdom of their experience, as well as their passion and inspiration. Each session will have actionable take-aways; there will be ideas that open your eyes, practical examples and demonstrations, tip sheets and downloads.

The topics are wide-ranging and will apply to almost any ArchiCAD-based practice:

  • 3D modeling
  • rendering with Cinerender
  • detailing
  • quantity take-offs and schedules
  • file organization and optimization
  • teamwork and multi-unit projects
  • creating intelligent parametric objects
  • BIM multi-disciplinary coordination and Integrated Project Delivery
  • BIMx and design build construction management, etc.

I have personally been running through the presentations with each master, and am very impressed with the depth of their knowledge, their care and precision, and the lucidity which they bring to their chosen focus. As you may know, I am a highly experienced user and trainer, so I have known about all of these capabilities of ArchiCAD, however it is one thing to know things in principle, and another to see them in practice and real world projects.

The registration fee for the conference is a very affordable $197, however I’d like to offer you a special discounted rate of only $97 USD, a savings of $100 off the standard fee. This will give you full access to the LIVE sessions as well as the recordings that you may add to your reference library. To get this discounted user group rate, you may use this special link:

We look forward to sharing this incredible event with you and with hundreds of ArchiCAD users from around the world.
