Greetings Implementation Community,
As I announced at the Beijing bSI Standards Summit, Bentley Systems has proposed to host the next ISG meeting (11-13 March 2020) at their development center in Pune, India!
I ask our ISG members to please take a moment to contemplate this and let me know if this will work. Léon and I see it as a great opportunity to have our first ISG meeting outside Europe or the US and reach an audience to include Asia-based (APEC) companies beyond India. We will most likely use this to test some new ideas about the format and results of these meetings, making them more proactive and responsive to the needs of the larger buildingSMART community. It’s a direction I’ve been wanting to take the group since taking over as chair in 2016 and now have a great partner in Léon van Berlo, bSI Technical Director, to work with in doing so.
We’d like to get everyone’s response as soon as possible so we can begin planning. Confirming the place and dates will help Bentley organizers and travels obtain flights and visas as required.
I’m excited by the opportunity and hope the community is as well!!!
