Regulars will know that COMIT holds a construction-focused mobile IT conference each autumn. Planning for this years' event is well under way and will be hosted by COMIT member CH2M at their London headquarters on the 28th and 29th September.
The theme is delivering value through innovation under the title of Digitally Building Britain. The objective is to provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of innovations and solutions that deliver value to the construction industry - and of course for the delegates to share their views, network and learn about new and breakthrough technologies.
The two days will be broadly themed CAPEX and OPEX and tickets will be available for single days for those delegates who can only make one or the other - although we hope that most will join us for both days to benefit from the full TOTEX experience.
This will be COMIT's 8th Annual Conference and we are going back to our roots to deliver a more intimate and networking-focused event. Delegate numbers will be strictly limited to 100 on each day, so early booking is advised (booking opens June 1st ).
We are re-designing our usual conference schedule to create a slightly more relaxed pace, In previous years the only complaints that we've had from delegates is that there is just too much to take in. So this time around we are easing back a bit to allow more time for networking.
There will still be a dozen quality presentations plus panel sessions over the two days but also more time to talk around the subjects and absorb the material. We are also planning a meal and networking event on the evening of the first day (28th) where we hope delegates will join us to relax and discuss the issues of the day.
A call for presentations went out to COMIT members a couple of months ago, but is now open to everyone. We still have a few presentation slots to fill and are looking for high-quality submissions from organisations directly involved in providing or implementing innovative solutions in construction. We are looking for the latest research, innovations, achievements and technologies that can deliver value to our industry. The conference program is aimed at all levels of the construction supply chain, from Owners to Contractors, Consultants and Suppliers.
So if you have something you would like to share with an international COMIT audience then please visit our website and download instruction on how to apply. The closing date for submitting an abstract is the 30th June.
Sponsorship & Exhibitor packages are currently being finalised and will be announced shortly. If you are interested in sponsoring the event or exhibiting at the conference and would like to get to the head of the queue then please contact us. Exhibition space will be more limited this year so an early response is advised.
