NXT DEV logo

The AEC market is undergoing a revolution in software development, as we move from a generation of software based on files and desktops to databases and distributed real-time collaboration. We are looking to leave proprietary lock-ins of the past and adopt open, dynamic and automated workflows which will deliver significant productivity benefits.

NXT DEV is a globally unique event. It brings together Design IT Directors from leading practices, with software developers (large and small), venture capitalists, enterprise investors and business angels. Our aim is to better connect software developers, investors with users, to identify pain points in tech stacks, identify new workflows and business models to ensure products better align to the needs or practice. Everyone can learn from each other.

Sample topic areas NXT DEV addresses: BIM 2.0 capabilities, Openness & Interoperability, Data Frameworks, Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning, Automation, Pricing & Licensing Models, Digital Fabrication, Knowledge Capture, Sustainability, Cloud SaaS vs Desktop, Collaboration, Convergence of GIS, BIM, Rapid Reality Capture and New Workflows.

This year’s event will be biased towards examining the impact and uses of AI, how openness will level the playing field and the drive for Automation in the role of Design.
